Charter in Vietnam and sail the Far East


Sunsail has opened a new Vietnam charter base at the Nha Trang Sailing Club. The operation offers bareboat charters along a 60-mile stretch of coast, and Sunsail’s Vietnam fleet includes Jeanneau and Beneteau monohulls from 37 to 46 feet. Prices start at $370 a day, and the inaugural season started May 21 and runs until Sept. 10.

The company already has operations in Thailand and Malaysia, so expanding into Vietnam seemed a “natural fit,” says marketing executive Christine DeSimone. She says Sunsail’s operation will be the largest of its kind in Vietnam.

The company also announced it has expanded the fleet of charter yachts at its Annapolis, Md., base. The four new yachts are the Beneteau Oceanis 343, 373, 393 and 423.
