The unique culture of the Myeik Archipelago that has survived for millennia is rapidly vanishing, as the Moken people are forced to leave the sea for life on land
Seal Superyachts Myanmar
Our Seal Superyachts Myanmar team is headed by Jeff La Valette, an Australian national and long term resident of Myanmar. Jeff previously managed a large pearl farm operation in the Islands of the Myeik Archipelago for eight years and was in charge of daily operations, heading a team of 200 Burmese nationals. In charge of our governmental logistics is Moe Kyaw, a Burmese national who has worked in The Ministry of Tourism for twenty years. He has been assisting Seal Superyachts with all government related logistics since 1997. We also have several local Myanmar guides who help us run our daily operations and join visiting Superyachts as they cruise in the Islands of the Myeik Archipelago.
A Message from Jeff La Valette

Jeff La Valette
Myanmar (Burma) has some of the most beautiful sailing grounds in Asia, and arguably the world. The southern islands of Burma’s Myeik Archipelago lie only one hundred and twenty nautical miles to the north of Phuket and directly west of the Thai border town of Ranong. There are approximately eight hundred pristine and untouched islands opposite Myanmar’s Tennasserim coast, forming one of the last remaining untouched paradises on the planet.

"Adam and the team have done an outstanding job looking after us during our previous 2 stays in Thailand... They were solely responsible for inward/outward clearance and formalities, assistance with bunkering, provisioning and concierge service and liaison with local contractors, port authorities and local regulatory bodies.
They provide an excellent and vital service for visiting yachts and have ensured our smooth and seamless visits in Thailand... I highly recommend them."

"With a choice of agencies to work with in the region my decision to work with SEAL Superyachts came from discussions with other Captains of standing within the industry...
From the outset with our detailed pre-cruise discussions, through to final invoicing and backups may I say that you and your teams service was faultless. While the yacht was based at Yacht Haven Phuket in between seasons SEAL Superyachts was always at hand to assist the yacht whenever needed."
Captain Jeff Dunn, M/Y Vibrant Curiosity
"I would like to say thank you from all of us on board and the owners for all that SEAL Superyachts did to make our visit to the Phuket area and beyound an immensely enjoyable experience ... not only as a result of your service with regard to provisioning ... your professionalism and knowledge of the area and its customs ... allowed us to enjoy the trip without any hindrance or bureaucratic delays.
Please add me to your list of satisfied customers, and if you have any future potential visitors pass on my details so they can get our experiences first hand."
Captain Eddie Cooney, M/Y Aviva
