The silver lining to ownership

Since launching S/Y Silver Lining in 2011, the first sailing superyacht built to class in Thailand, owner Chris Lenz has travelled to the far corners of the globe with his wife and two children on her. The Superyacht Owner spoke to him about his experiences and whether the stress of building his own yacht was worth it.…

“When I think back, if someone came to me today and said they were going to build 104-foot aluminium hull to ABS class and to superyacht standard, having never built a boat before and choosing to do it at a shipyard that might be capable of building Noah’s Ark, I would tell them to have their head examined,” says Lenz of his three year build experience. Lenz was on site every day from day one at the yard, helping to make decisions and steer the build.

“I don’t think I told the right people of my plans,” he dryly mused in a blog post he wrote a few months after completion. “The people I did tell said ‘hey that’s so cool man’, just the type of encouragement this egocentric skipper needed. I bought the hull and the pain started within days: where would I finish it, how much would it cost, how to get it there, etc.”

The motivation for owning a superyacht for him has always been first and foremost about having adventures as a family and Lenz was determined that failure was not an option, no matter how time consuming and difficult at times the build process was. After three years of hard work, Silver Lining was launched in Phuket.

“I can tell you from the bottom of my heart that when we launched Silver Lining, it was bar none, my finest hour,” he says. “She is a superyacht and we did make class, the first vessel built to the ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) Maltese Cross in Thailand.”


“I can tell you from the bottom of my heart that when we launched Silver Lining, it was bare none, my finest hour” – Chris Lenz, owner of Silver Lining

Silver Lining has enabled the family to see some incredible places and share some unforgettable experiences, travelling through South East Asia, past Sri Lanka and Turkey, into Europe, most recently down into Morocco and next onto Panama. While ownership has clearly allowed him to see the world as a family just as he wanted, does owning a superyacht hold any frustrations for Lenz?

“The logistics is my main frustration,” he tells us. “I spend too much time procuring parts from people all over the world. You would think that with bad economies it would be easier and people would be keen to do business and yet I still constantly have to chase people to get stuff. It’s a waste of my time and money and the fools I have to deal with don’t make it easier.”

Logistics aside, Lenz is adamant that Silver Lining has had a more than positive impact on his life. He shows us another blog entry he did, shortly after beginning his travels, which sums up what he feels ownership has given him: “I feel my life getting a bit slower and feel I have done the right thing. Too often in life we grow up and part of growing seems to mean that we have to forfeit our dreams to adulthood and responsibility. I feel very happy to report, I broke the clasps; perhaps one of the most invigorating but at the same times scary things I have ever done. I am dreaming again and I am happy, afraid, worried, euphoric and at peace with myself, I have embarked on my voyage of discovery and I certainly hope it will be the same for my family and crew.”

Day Trip Charter Phi Phi Island National Park

Maya Bay – The Beach
The Island is probably most famous for the Leonardo Di Caprio movie “The Beach”which was set in the stunning Maya Bay which is located on the uninhabited Phi Phi Leh which is the 2nd biggest of the Islands.
Maya Bay’s beach, closed last year (2018) to allow coral restoration and beach recovery, could remain closed to visitors for many years. Maya Bay is located in the Phi Phi Islands between Krabi and Phuket.The famous Koh Phi Phi Ley beach needs time for its ecology to fully recover years of tourist abuse, this according to the Phi Phi National park chief Vorapot Lomlim as reported in Khaosod English.“Maya Bay must continue to be closed until nature has fully recovered. We expect it will take four to five years.”
Loh Sama Bay
Loh Sama Bay is home to many unique attractions. Popular for snorkeling and diving, the Bay is located on the eastern side of Phi Phi Island and features a small islet in the center and a secluded beach behind a small canyon on the northern part. You’ll be able to enjoy a photo opportunity at Loh Samah. There will be plenty of photos to show family and friends when back home!
Viking Cave & Monkey Beach
There’s more sightseeing to be enjoyed on this tour. We’ll glide past Viking Cave, reputed to have been a spot for pirates, and Monkey Beach where you might be able to spot some swimming monkeys! Whilst not a common trait amongst monkeys, this rocky island is home to several monkeys and they can swim. Get your cameras ready for some stunning photos of these smart creatures.
Snorkel & Relax on White Sandy Beaches…
Enjoy the stillness and silence of the sea whilst you snorkel through a vista of stunning underwater scenery with colorful coral reefs and schools of fish. Our tour leaves you with ample time to enjoy the beauty of the sea at a relaxed pace.
Bamboo Island

Bamboo Island is the most northeasterly island in Phi Phi. It’s a tropical hotspot, yet never too crowded, perfect for a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of other, more popular spots. This heart-shaped island gives plenty in terms of views. It’s surrounded by a strip of white sand, with lush vegetation, including Bamboo trees in its middle. Snorkeling here is great; the island is blessed with a notable coral reef rich with fish species.

As Poda Island is one of Krabi’s main tourist attractions; it can get somewhat busy.

More so during the high season when day trips and tour groups arrive for lunch after spending the morning island hopping and snorkeling around these beautiful offshore islands.

The best spot for swimming and snorkeling on Koh Poda is either at the northern tip of the Island in front of the towering limestone islet that sits just offshore or along the eastern facing beach.

Day Trip CharterRacha Yai and Racha Noi Island

Racha Yai island is best known as excellent diving and snorkelling daytrip destinations. It is located 12 km south of Phuket. Racha Yai is a granite island with beautiful
beaches and bays all around and dense tropical jungle covering the interior. There are several dive sites at Racha Yai. Most of those sites are suitable for all levels of diver and Racha Yai is often the location for student divers first open water dives. Visibility is always good and currents mild.
Racha Yai Island

Day Trip CharterIsland Hop Maithon (Popular)

This is by far the most popular boat cruise for our guests.
Maithon is a private island off southern Phuket coast. This area is gorgeous, has very clear waters and the snorkelling is good.
There is a pod of around 22 Dolphins which can be seen on this boat cruise about 80% of the time.

It is a perfect place to put up our slide from the top deck,  and inflate the floating jacuzzi and slide because the waters are so clear. 

Maithon is a private island off southern Phuket. We highly recommend this cruise because it is such a beautiful area with crystal clear water and a pod of more than 20 dolphins. Baby dolphins spotted recently!
We sail first to the Kai islands in the morning and then cruise south to Maithon Island where the crew will anchor, and prepare your lunch, while you play with all the boat water “toys” like the floating jacuzzi, water bike, hammocks and enjoy snorkeling.
Maithon waters are great for snorkeling, as they are crystal clear with many tropical fish. 

In the afternoon, the boat can  call in to Rang Yai islands, where you can play with all the boat “toys” and swim to the beach.

Koh Rang Yai is a small uninhabited island about 5km off the east coast of Phuket, which has a fabulous long white sand beach on the west with views back to the mainland. Though there is virtually no develpment on the island, there are several local beach restaurants set in the shade of the trees. The beach is idyllic with overhanging trees giving plenty of shade. There is a smaller beach on the western side of the island and you can walk through the coconut groves to reach it. At the centre of the main beach is the pearl farm and shop.. Here you can see the various stages of pearl production. The forested interior has some good trails for hiking. You can rent mountain bikes for a ride along the trails around the island. There is also some reasonable snorkeling around the rocky headlands. The water on the east side of the island is not always so clear, but the beach is lovely for swimming. You can sit in the shade of the coconut trees, and take a refreshing dip in the sea, or relax in our floating Jacuzzis.

There is a possibility of calling in at the tiny island of Koh Phae too if it is low tide.

Ko Phae is a tiny rocky island out on its own in the middle of the Andaman Sea, with a wonderful surprise of a beautiful sand bar which appears miraculously at low tide. Usually deserted, this is a lovely place to anchor off in one of our boats if the timing of your day cruise fits in with a low tide.
