The Latest Happenings from Ao Po Grand Marina
Another successful lift and even with a 11m beam and 72ft, no problem to lift here at Ao Po Grand marina. Note the clearance on either side of the cat and the slipway walls and one can understand why lifting big cats here is no problem. Bingo is coming up for general maintenance and fresh […]

What our customers have to say about Ao Po Grand Marina
Situated at the southern end of Ao Phang-Nga there are no tidal restrictions entering or leaving this seven year old marina which offers a standard of luxury almost unsurpassed. It is home to many superyachts and the Sunsail charter fleet but with lots of room for cruisers. Good pontoons with electricity and water (not potable). There is plenty of turning space and the docking crews are first rate – a “pushing” dinghy will meet you at the entrance and there will be catchers on the pontoon. Call first on CH 69 as they will know better than the office where you are going to tie up. There is a huge haul out area and good local labour.Anthony Swanston, SV Wild Fox
There is a beautiful pool with absolutely pristine modern loos and showers adjacent.
There is a bar/restaurant at the marina, a chandlery and a short walk away a local eaterie with a European/Thai place almost next door.
It is mandatory for all foreign yachts coming into Phuket, Thailand and outgoing from Phuket, Thailand to be equipped with an Automatic Identification System (AIS) or AIS Class B system or higher class appropriately.
AIS must be ACTIVE when coming into Thai water or leaving Thai water or moving to somewhere else.
Marine department allowed to turn off the AIS transmitter while the yachts stay in Marina or Hardstand.

Thank you to all the Ao Po Grand Marina Staff. We have enjoyed our stay with you. We have been in many marinas halfway around the world and you need to know your staff are the best! They are friendly, helpful and skilled working under a great manager. With appreciation and best wishes for the future success of your marina.Ken and Jean
M/Y Whale Song would like to thank you and the staff at Ao Po Grand Marina for the help we received while finishing various projects during our stay. You certainly have done a lot more than any other marina management would offer. Your local knowledge saved us a lot of time and money with restocking our wine supply and knowing which fresh markets to visit and when. Perhaps your thoughtfulness in our time of need was the greatest of your services. We felt very lucky to have someone else thinking of our needs.Tom and Nancy Zydler Captain and Mate of M/Y Whale Song
Since I moved my boat to the Marina I have had nothing to complain about‚ which must mean something! The dock staff are willing and helpful and most speak some English. Whatever your needs they will do their best to provide the service. The fuel dock is easily accessed in both the NE and SW monsoon seasons‚ which is a blessing if you a have a single engined boat. Nothing more to say except keep up the good work guys.Stuart Smithson
I have stayed at Ao Po twice aboard my boat‚ and have nothing but praise for the manager‚ the staff and the marina.
I have found Derrick van Deventer‚ to be not only approachable and friendly‚ but highly professional in his duties as manager. His staff are probably the best trained‚ and competent‚ marina staff I have encountered in 10 years of living on my boat‚ and cruising in SE Asia. The staff are not only proficient in their duties‚ but are courteous‚ and have demonstrated on a day to day basis commendable initiative in assisting me during my stays in the Marina.Gordon Millar
The location‚ the 24 hour access and the marina team are simply fantastic and it is a pleasure to manage our daily charters with such customer service level and smooth operations.Thibault Salaun GM Twinpalms Cruises
Ao Po Grand Marina is my number one pick of all the marinas in Thailand. The location looks directly at magnificent Phang Nga, the fuel dock is ideally located, rubbish collection and security are world class. I have no hesitation in recommending Ao Po Grand Marina to all our managed boat owners simply because it has all-tide access and is located on the doorstep of the best cruising grounds in the Kingdom.Bill O’Leary, retired GM of Amancruises and author of the Andaman Sea Pilot
