Dear all

I need to get a trip from Phuket to Egypt organized. Boat is a 60ft. single engine trawler, custom built with a 2000 miles range.

We have only basic cruising and sailing experience and are grateful for any kind of feedback, even the most basic one. From initial research January seems to be the season to leave Phuket....!!?? Any ideas about where I could find some infos to get started or anybody out there done it before or able to provide the basics.

A I said, any help very much appreciated. Thank you very much. Michael

Hi Richard

Thank you very much for the quick response. I will meet with the builder of the yacht shortly and get back with more info and details on the yacht. The boat is 95% completed and almost ready for launch and needs to be delivered to Egypt.

I appreciate any links or material to study to my email address: homeless007#gmail.com

For the moment thanks again and talk to you soon!

Regarding fuel at Uligan, depending on how much you need you may have to wait awhile to get it. There is no fuel shop, just guys who sell "surplus" diesel from the islands generator. If yachts ahead of you have taken on a lot you may have to wait. Last year I wanted 100 liters but they only had 60 to spare. The fuel comes in 20 liter plastic cooking oil containers that you dinghy out your self. They are building a resort there so this might make it better in the future. If you need tonnes you would be better off going to Male or Sri Lanka or Cochin. Hope you have a great trip.

Regards, Stephen
Happy Sailing,

Hello M,

I have sent by email the links specifically regarding Uligan in the Maldives and the procedure to get fuel.

I repeat them here for general consumption :-

The first is a link to an excellent writeup by the then owners of Heartsong III ULIGAN FUEL

I understand the information is still valid. Having spoken a number of yachts who called in there in recent past.

The next is the link to Amsco who give the authority to provide the fuel :-

AMSCO If you are emailing them here is the add :-
