The waters around the Malaysian state of Sabah on the mystical island of Borneo, are crystal clear and warm – generally always around 28ºc – and very calm. A cruise around the islands is a magical and unforgettable experience, and suitable for couples, friends and families alike. The beaches are blessed with white powdery sand and the waters are both shallow and safe, making it ideal for all ages.
Touchdown Luxury Yacht Charters operates an exclusive collection of luxury yachts to make this memorable part of your holiday to Sabah possible, including luxurious Sunseeker open offshore cruisers, flybridge yachts, a Bladerunner extreme speed powerboat, and an 80ft motor yacht. Based in Sabah’s premier marina at Sutera Harbour, Kota Kinabalu, we offer a tantalising choice of Sunset Cruises 5pm-7pm; Day Charters 10am-4pm; and Two Day live-aboard charters. Incentive groups are also perfectly catered for, and itineraries can be put together to suite any requirement. Prices are staggeringly low when compared to the Caribbean and Meditteranean!
Sailing waters - In the immediate vicinity of Kota Kinabalu are the five delightful islands of the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, offering fast accessibility, sheltered crystal waters, fine beaches, and islands rich in flora & fauna - a nature lover’s paradise. Perfect for day charters and sunset cruises.
Thirty miles south from Kota Kinabalu is the island of Pulau Tiga - famous for its inclusion in the popular tv series "Survivor". Tiga is home to a mud volcano inland, a small resort, and nearby sand spit - perfect for anchoring and enjoying a sumptuous lunch, and makes a fantastic day trip from Kota Kinabalu (approx 1 1/2 hours sailing by Sunseeker, 25 minutes by Bladerunner!)
Fifty miles north from Kota Kinabalu are the simply pristine and idyllic islands of Mantanani. Deep blue and turquoise waters await you in this haven for tropical marine life, as do some of Asia’s whitest and finest beaches. Why not go there for lunch and cruise back to Kota Kinabalu into the sunset?! (2 1/2 hours sailing from Kota Kinabalu by Sunseeker).
Mengalum, and many smaller islands scattered along the coastline also await you. Kudat and the northern most Tip of Borneo are a must with those with a little more time to spare and explore.
All our cruise charters come complete with skipper and hostess to ensure your comfort and pleasure, and include full gourmet meals, wine, beer and soft drinks. No expense is spared.
A visit to Sabah would be incomplete without a charter around our glorious waters on board a Touchdown luxury Yacht!
