9th - 17th December 2011 Jacinta and family - Mum/Dad/ 2 daughters and 2 sons "Australian"

Thanks Chris and Wandee for a wonderful trip. It was our first charter on a yacht in Phuket and what a way to see the area - aboard the floating restaurant Chameleon. Having read the story on Wandee before boarding we had our expectations - but they were well and truly better than we were expecting. Also thanks for the complimentry copy of the South East Asia Pilot and the navigation chart with the track of our trip which will be a constant reminder of our time aboard Chameleon in Phuket.

We all had a fabulous time. Chris and I became friends he also helped my kids and made their experience one they will never forget. Wandee. "Just magnificent". Without my Thai wife looking over my shoulder that was the best thai food I have ever eaten. Great boat.

The Boat – Very nice sailing boat and everything works. Definitely good value for money in comparison to bareboat charter, and I think more could be made of that in the website and elsewhere. I am an experienced sailor – but the fact that you can be sailing within minutes of first getting on board, and that you can sail until minutes before your charter ends easily adds a day to the holiday – we hope to be back for more (but for your crew's sake will wait until the kids are less of a handful!). None of the bareboats available would offer the sailing performance, nor would we have had the resources to take advantage of it even if they had. I would love to come back for more of the sailing performance and instantly went looking for second hand examples from the same designer – bit of a pipe dream for the time being sadly.

Chris – Clearly very experienced and an excellent temperament for the task – I think you are lucky to have someone with his maturity doing this job for you. A young family is certainly a challenge and I hope he has recovered from it. Would love to meet Chris again.

Wandee – Fantastic food, each meal better than the last! Way above our expectations.
Sorry no photos available from this charter as everyone was to busy with taking care of the kids!!

We came back for our third trip on Chameleon in October 2010. Best trip so far. Wandee's cooking is superb.No wonder Wandee was selected to represent Thailand in Los Angeles for promoting Thailand and Thai food. We would be hard pressed to find a restaurant that can cook with such passion and quality. Wandee's a real pleasure to have on the yacht with us. Friendly and a very pleasant personality.

We had Chris as our captain this year. A professional and safe captain with good sailing and local experience of where there are good places to go see. He exhibited the right attitude. There when needed and leaves us to ourselves (including sailing) when that is what we wanted. Chameleon sails very well. This year we had decent sailing wind every day. 15-20 knots wind and had te boat up to 16 knots on the first day. FUN. We also got to fly the kite (spinnaker) on a downwind leg from Phi Phi island.

As well the recent interior refit/restyle this year makes her look just that much younger, much lighter and airy. We were the first guests to charter Chameleon this year who new how she was before.

We are already planning our 2011 trip on Chameleon. I can recommend Wandee, Chris and Chameleon to anyone who wants to have a few relaxing days on a comfortable catamaran in Phuket.

April 14th - 20th 2010: Jenny & Phil Malone & Family

Just wanted to pass onto your company our appreciation for a great trip we just did on Chameleon . I know often businesses only hear from clients when something went wrong, but I'm pleased to say that we don't have any complaints and in fact we had one of our best holidays.

We thought Chris's captaincy of the boat was excellent - he was very knowledgeable of the area and did an awesome job of giving us the experiences we wanted to have on this trip. We appreciated that a Captain is more than just a Yachtsman but needs to be a mechanic and tradesman as well, as he had to fix water problems on route - all this with no inconvenience to us as the clients.

Testimonials Testimonials Testimonials Testimonials Testimonials Testimonials

Also, the cooking from Wandee was excellent - some of the best food we have tasted. The variety was amazing and the care taken in preparing the food was highly commendable. We always looked forward to meal times :-)
We would highly recommend your company to any potential customers.
Thanks again for making this special family holiday memorable.
Jenny and Phil
