Our thanks to Bec and Tim of SV Infinity V for informing noonsite about this new marina and sending a detailed report about current facilities.

Additional received 10th July 2012 indicated that the marina is only really suitable for boats wanting repairs as it has limited space and is only accessible at high tide by keel boats.

Location: Lat N 08°00¹43.6 Long E 098°57¹42.1

New marina complex and sister project to Phuket Boat Lagoon, opened late 2011 and in initial stages at present. At the time of writing the marina was offering half price fees as only facilities available were berths and hard stands with electricity and water plus a small shop selling basic food items. By late 2012 completion of pool and condominiums is anticipated.

Marina is 28km by road to Krabi Town, however by dinghy via the inland river systems (khlongs) it is 6nm, and took us 30 mins. We tied our dinghy up at the small Krabi River marina which has also opened recently, however was charged a fee of 200 baht to do so. Shallow draught yachts may be able to negotiate the khlongs all the way to Krabi Town, however this has not been substantiated.

Independent transport is required due to the location as there are two good local restaurants in the area but these are 2km south and 5km north. The marina office has bicycles for rental and can arrange car and scooter hire. A laundry service is available if you ask at the marina office; staff members take it to their homes at present. For provisioning there is a new Tesco located on the road to Krabi Town, however this is 20km from the marina.

The approach to the marina is recommended at high tide as the channel is shallow and right at the marina entry is particularly shallow. There are good details as to the approach on the marina website under the marina banner. We came in on a 2.8m high tide and experienced 1.7m under our 1.75m keel. Channel 67 was the operating radio channel. At the time of writing fuel bowsers were noted but not used by us, staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.
