About us

The history of MC charters is quite varied as once it was a sailing school.

The humble beginnings were that I delivered a yacht from Hong Kong to Pattaya a 1,500 nautical mile passage which took 10 days and 4hours. A very exciting trip but not a tale for now. As I beached in Thailand I was asked to stay and teach which I did. After a year or so i started Marine-Certification Ltd and went solo. This started as renovating boats and teaching owners on their own boats which became lucrative. What was pointed out was that boats needed maintenance on a weekly basis for owners away. The flotilla grow to 43 large yachts with a large staff to follow. Services in clued interior steam cleaning, full wash-downs once a week and the anti-fouling once a year. Oh and refitting vessels .Through this we acquired a 43 foot charter boat which we renovated and had very busy very quickly.


Marine –Certification sold out but kept the name and the charter business side. The company went on as MC Charter and acquired a 70 foot racing catamaran which is 30 foot wide. . With both boats able to now take up to 70 passengers. We are continuing with this and expanding into corporate and weddings onboard. We pride ourselves with having fully trained Captains and engineers and staff who are monitored by the local authorities and marine department. Full safety equipment onboard and all paperwork updated.

As from myself the CEO I wish you and your friends a pleasant trip with us in comfort and style. The future is looking bright the future looking MC Charter.
