PHUKET: Krabi Boat Lagoon opened in late 2012 as one of the province’s first residential marinas, adding a new freehold option for foreign investors with The Cleat Condominium – a collection of 45 waterfront condominium units in three low-density buildings overlooking the marina’s 80 yacht berths.
Built by Boat Development Co Ltd, the same developers who built the Phuket Boat Lagoon, the marina caters to the increasing number of visitors choosing Krabi as an international yachting and leisure destination.
“Krabi Boat Lagoon is aimed at boat owners and investors, or anyone who loves being near water and next to nature,” said General Manager Thana Tharadolaparb.
“Krabi Boat Lagoon is located in a natural mangrove area, easily reached by a 15-minute drive from Krabi International Airport, about two hours by car from Phuket International Airport or just one hour by speedboat. Boats can come and go freely through the sea entrance, which has a minimum tide depth of 1.5 meters.”
Starting at just over 3 million baht, The Cleat Condo comprises one-bedroom Studio (37.74sqm) and Grand Studio (47.28sqm) units, two-bedroom suites (81sqm) and a Duplex Penthouse (74.36sqm).
The units come with garden or marina-front options and rooms with a view of the
Two of the buildings are complete and fully-furnished units are available. Construction of the third building is scheduled for completion this year.
As well as the 80 berths for yachts, the marina has hard stands for up to 100 boats serviced by a 50-tonne travel lift, workshops and contractor services.
The marina provides good shelter during the Southwest monsoon season.
The Cleat Condominium is sold under a freehold strata structure, meaning that foreign nationals can own up to 49 per cent of the units outright. Owners who are not always at home can take advantage of the developer’s rental management service and benefit from rental returns. The rooms can be rented out on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
“Permanently living at The Cleat would be an ideal option for boat owners and retirees seeking privacy, tranquility and convenience,” said Mr Thana.
There is a clubhouse with a swimming pool, fitness center and library. Also, there are plans to open a beach club exclusively for residents later this year.
Plans for the beach club include a bar and restaurant, cycling track, tennis courts and another swimming pool, as well as on-site kayaking and sailing lessons.
