What is a Thai longtail boat?

A Thai longtail boat (Rua hang yao / เรือหางยาว) is a traditional wood built boat that is commonly seen on beaches in southern Thailand. Longtail boats, like tuk tuks are a favourite for tourist photos, they are iconic and uniquely distinctive.

Longtail boats, usually just referred to as longtails, are not only used to take tourists out on pleasure rides. They are used as ferries, cargo boats and fishing boats.

Longtails can be big or small, and builders like to get creative with designs. But they all have the same basic characteristics. They are designed to sit low in the water and have a flat bottom, ideal for beaching on the sand, or driving up klongs (narrow canals).

Longtails are wide and therefore relatively stable. They have a high bow and can cope with rough sea surprisingly well. The outboard engine is placed high and inboard at the stern. The skipper stands to steer his craft with a long tiller which also acts as the throttle.

Protruding from the rear of the engine is a long propeller shaft from which the boats’ name is derived. The whole engine block and propeller shaft can be spun around 360 degrees to enable steering. The bracket mount also allows for up and down movement. Very few longtail boats have a reverse gear.
