BOUTIQUE cruise operator Burma Boating has added four new yachts to its fleet, including new flagship the Clan VI, bringing total boat count to 10.
The 40m-long Clan VI will cruise Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago, offering both scheduled itineraries and private charters, starting October. The yacht can accommodate groups of up to 10.
Between November 2016 and May 2017, Clan VI will sail seven-night cruises from Kawthaung in Myanmar’s south to the historic port town of Myeik, crossing the entire Mergui Archipelago.
The 800 mostly-uninhabited islands had been off-limits to foreigners since Myanmar’s independence and only opened to tourism recently. It remains one of the planet’s most unspoilt destinations. There are currently no hotels operating in the area.
Burma Boating also announced a new scheduled cruise from Thailand to India’s Andaman Islands. The 12-night trip will operate between February and late April next year.
