VIP fleet

5 Star Marine is home to a luxury fleet of 8 vessels. From Standard VIP Speedboats to elite cruisers, all of their boats are new, well-maintained and fully equipped.

Each of their boat charters is stable and capable of safely completing journeys in all conditions. Furthermore, their powerful engines allow for speed and efficiency when travelling from island to island. Boats are cleaned daily and include water, soft drinks, fresh fruit, masks, snorkels, life jackets, beach mats and fins on every trip. Outdoor cushions and picnic equipment can also be provided upon request and customers can bring their own drinks on board as well.

However, despite their similarities, each vessel has its own unique features. For example, Lucus 1 (the first speedboat to 5 Star Marine’s fleet) and Lucus 6 seats up to 35 adults along with 3 crew members. Moreover, they come with an inbuilt cool box, Bluetooth Sound System and marine shower and toilet for maximum comfort.

Alternatively, Lucus 7 otherwise known as the “Raptor” is a little more exclusive. This high-performance cruiser is their newest addition and seats up to 12 and 2 crew. At the back of the boat, you’ll find a covered area with a table, seating and bottle holders for added convenience. The front is uncovered, featuring reclined loungers ideal for unwinding on the water. Finally, there is an air-conditioned bedroom inside with both shower and toilet facilities.

Depending on the day’s weather and sea conditions, marine captains will choose a great location for each trip. However, there’s no worry if unexpected rain does occur as their informed on-the-day planning can work around this. “So, sit back and relax whilst you enjoy the bespoke selection of untouched paradise locations on offer”.

Health and safety

In 2020, they were awarded a TAT SHA Certification; complemented with a TAT SHA Plus Certification in 2021. They were the first boat company in Phuket to achieve such distinction, attesting to their hard work and professionalism. This is further evident in their continuous efforts to improve their speedboats, staff, policies and procedures to adhere to new public health measures. For example, whilst the “Phuket Must Win” rollout required only 70% employee vaccination, 100% of their employees have been fully vaccinated.

First-aid is always on-board and staff are qualified in lifesaving. Furthermore, as safety is their main priority, boats are sanitised after each tour. These efforts have been acknowledged by the Thai Government, highlighting their competence in following the “Covid-19 Safe Guidelines and Principles”.
