Sailing Yacht Phillipines Palawan El Nido Puerto Princessa

A fantastic sailing yacht with her fully battened sails, teak deck and modern hull design.

SY ORION is a custom designed aluminium yacht, professionally built in England to Lloyds 100 A1 hull construction certificate, survey and classification.

Below deck, there is ample headroom (two meters twenty to be precise), all the furnishings are crafted by masters carpenters in the finest English ash, a wood which lands a bright and spacious ambiance.

You can enjoy sailing, diving, kayaking, surfing or fishing trips with up to 8 friends or family.

Currently this beautiful monohul is cruising in the Philippines in the area of El Nido, Coron, Busubang Islands, Palawan.

The area of  El Nido, and Coron,and Busubanga Island.

This is a very beautiful place, with hundreds of Islands, very clear water, beautiful reefs, pristine beaches, and no mass tourism.

It is very easy to fly into these Islands via Manila. The airport we pick up guests is Busuanga Airport. There are two carriers that serve this airport from Manila, both with daily flights.
We would start our cruise at Busuanga island and sail south as the winds blow from the Northeast from 12 to 18 knots steady.

The beauty of Bacuit Bay around El Nido is that the Islands are limestone with the look of Phi Phi (Thailand). There are 45 such islands without all the big speedboats and mass tourist.

From the middle of December through May is the very best season. NO Storms and plenty of sunshine, with good sailing wind.

Because there are so many islands  (Palawan area has over 1000 Islands) one does not have to make long trips between islands. The geography in Bacuit islands is very much like Phuket and Phang Nga bay in Thailand , except there is crystal clear water around all the Islands.

Just north of Palawan is Busuanga and Coron islands were you can find some of the best WW 2 wreck diving in the world . Most of the wrecks are in less than 34 meters of water. At least 8 wrecks are easily assessable.

Apo reef and Island, a National reserve , is the world’s second largest contiguous coral reef system and has walls going down to 200 meters. The depth of the sea just off Apo reef is over 1000 meters deep. Apo reef is just 25 miles north of Busuanga island.
All in all this is a world class cruising and diving area.
