What We Do
At Burma Boating, we organise sailing holidays in Burma (Myanmar) and in South East Asia.
You can do the sailing yourself or we can do it for you. You can go for 5 days or 5 weeks. And you can chill on empty beaches, drink at hand, or go race the dolphins. It’s your choice and it’s easy with Burma Boating.
Burma Boating was founded by a group of passionate sailors who were spellbound when we first sailed into Myanmar’s waters. We discovered pristine islands, beautiful beaches, and welcoming people. Right there and then, we decided to share these wonders.
Who We Are
Manfred stands at the helm of Burma Boating. He was born in Germany but has managed travel companies in the US, Europe and across Asia. He loves the Mergui Archipelago - and won't stop talking once you ask him about Myanmar.
Eric started his long career in hospitality working on super yachts where he discovered his passion for the ocean. He later changed to the hotel industry and in March 2015 joined Burma Boating as our operations director.
Aung Kyaw spent the last 16 years sailing the Mergui Archipelago and knows almost every island, every rock and every beach. He's in charge of the itineraries and is our connection to the local communities. Most people call him AK.
Karolina is our Sales Manager. She's worked in Southeast Asia for many years but is now based in Europe to make sure she is closer to our guests pre-departure. Do ask her any questions you have about sailing with us!
Jing was born in Shanghai where she spent years working in the hospitality industry before joining Burma Boating's team in summer 2014. Jing works as our guest services manager and takes care of our paperwork.
April is from Yangon and she will be in touch with you before your trip to ask you about your cruise preferences, what you would like to have for breakfast and which sundowners you like best. Believe it or not, she is also an amazing accountant!
