ABOUT ‘Tuay Lek’ – Platu 7.6 metre yacht

Tuay Lek is a little star and won the King's Cup Regatta in the Platu class (in 2012) and is available with great racing sails. The yacht is very competitive and also won the Langkawi Regatta a few years ago with 6 first places.

She is the perfect small yacht for Phuket King's Cup Regatta. Tuay Lek is very favourably rated under IRC rules. The Platu (Tuna fish) was design by Bruce Farr with Thai waters in mind. There are almost twenty Platus sailing in Phuket and Pattaya. Sail in Asia has two Platus for charter. Because they are relatively inexpensive to charter the Platu is a great entry-level regatta boat.

Tuay Lek has cruising sails or racing sails and suits a crew size of 4 or 5 people. She has new standing rigging, electronics and running rigging. She is in excellent condition and was repainted recently.
