Port Takola Yacht Marina & Boatyard is set to expand its Pier G with 25 new berths, made up of a mixture of 15m and 18m berths as well as a 40m superyacht berth. Situated in Thailand’s Krabi province, east of Phuket, Port Takola is a 40-minute drive from Krabi International Airport and a relatively recent addition to the country’s marinas.
“Since our soft opening in May 2018, we have gradually gained a reputation for serenity, services, year-round shelter, convenience for yacht checking in and out, and being close to Ao Nang, Krabi Town and Krabi International Airport,” said Matthew Na Nagara, Port Takola’s General Manager and Chairman of the Thai Yachting Business Association.
“Boat repair services and superyacht arrivals are other factors behind this expansion. Our boatyard now provides a comprehensive service, so more repair work can be done here. A chandlery is now available onsite, so this makes it more convenient to base a yacht here on long-term basis.
“We’re also receiving more interest from superyachts for short- term and seasonal visits. This is due to more awareness of our capability and the value we can provide in comparison to other nearby destinations.”
Pier G will feature a 3m-wide concrete pontoon and Thermowood grooved-surface fingers built by Marinetek. All pedestals will feature two power connections to accommodate air-conditioning, while superyacht pedestals will provide 125-amp three-phase electrical supply.
Port Takola is also offering 30 per cent discounts to yachts berthing for more than a week, as well as long-term berth ownership.
