The Raja Laut is a modern version of the 19th century gentleman's yacht. With classic lines and varnished timber
interiors, the Raja Laut follows in the wake of similar vessels that undertook journeys of exploration and trade from
West to East, notably the schooner 'Royalist' sailed by Sir James Brooke, an inspiration for many an adventure story.
In fact the name Raja Laut, Malay for 'King of the Seas', is itself a reference to a Joseph Conrad novel set in the
Effortlessly combining style and grace with modern technology, Raja Laut has shared and enjoyed unforgettable

Yacht Charter Activities
We are sometimes asked, "what will we do for a week on board the yacht?" The response is that you can do all the
things that you would do were you staying in a hotel, but in addition to this, you have the freedom to move from
one location to another at any time you please!
The activities available to you on board will differ with the location you choose to charter the Raja Laut. If you have
an active family group, with young children and teens, you may want to opt for a location where plenty of variety
on offer, such as Phang Nga Bay, Phuket and Langkawi. Older, active couples may be more interested in choosing a
destination that is remote, pristine and untouched, such as the Andamans, Mergui Archipelago, North Borneo,
Palawan, Komodo. In some cases, it's not necessary to compromise as some areas offer everything!
If you are new to cruising in Southeast Asia we can recommend starting from Phuket, Thailand, and visiting the
magical islands of Phang Nga Bay, Phi Phi, Krabi, Similan, Surin, and Koh Tarutao all set in the gorgeously warm and
alluring Andaman Sea.
