Extensive dredging gives Royal Phuket Marina round-the-clock access | The Thaiger

Royal Phuket Marina, working closely with the Marine Department in Phuket, have recently completed dredging of its marina basin and access channel, increasing the depth to two metres at the lowest tide and enabling motor boats up to 35 metres round-the-clock access.

“The recent dredging program is part of our ongoing commitment to customers and our desire to drive Thailand’s marine industry to greater heights. The increased depth and improved access makes it easier and even more convenient for all motor boats at the marina. It also gives our Royal Villa owners unrivalled convenience to depart and return to their private villa berths at any time they choose,” said Mr. Gulu Lalvani, Chairman of Royal Phuket Marina.

“Since opening Royal Phuket Marina we have been an accredited 5 Gold Anchor Marina and we remain the only such marina in Thailand. However, we are always striving to be better and these latest improvements are already being well-received by customers and boat owners around Asia.”

Royal Phuket Marina caters for motor boats up to 35 metres in length and has a capacity of 216 boats.

“The convenience of round-the-clock access benefits boats of all sizes, and we have recently confirmed the arrival of four private motor yachts from Hong Kong which are due later this year. We have also welcomed two 20+ metre motor yachts whose owners chose Royal Phuket Marina because of its facilities and strategic location on the island’s east coast,” added Mr. Lalvani.

The unofficial tally, as of late last night, gave Phalang Pracharat’s Sutha Prateep na Thalang the victory in Constituency 1 with 32,338 votes.

He beat Democrat Rewat Areerob, who got 25,198 votes.

The voter turnout was 70.80 per cent.

In Constituency 2, Natthee Thinsakhu of Phalang Pracharat beat Democrat Chaiyos Panyawai, 26,787 votes to 23,492.

Voter turnout was 72.57 per cent.

A Guyanese man has been arrested in Phuket after the owner of a local language school reported a money scammer with an unusual scam.

The Immigration Bureau Chief Lt Gen Surachate Hakparn reports that they have arrested the Guyanese man named Abdul Kalam Azad Sattaur at a mansion in Phuket Town last Friday.

The arrest follows a Thai woman, the owner of a language school in Phuket, filing a report to the Thalang Police that a suspect used a fake Facebook and LINE account and claimed that he was an American man who had worked in Syria.

He told the woman that he will send a security box which contained blank papers and a special liquid that would turn the blank paper into bank notes when she added the special liquid.

He claimed that the total money was 650,000 US dollar, about 20 million baht.

He said that the woman had to pay him an amount before he would send the security box. The victim had transferred money to the man’s bank account 10 times, a total of about 9 million baht.

Beware of magic bank notes!
