Asia Pacific Superyachts Langkawi is now acting as the agent for private and charter yachts over 30m in length for the expanded and newly renovated Royal Langkawi Yacht Club & Marina. The top class establishment, with a breath-taking marina nestled on the mystical island of duty-free Langkawi, positioned in the fabulous Malaysia yacht charter location, has added new berths and has extensively renovated and expanded the entire marina.
“We are thrilled to be part of the new Royal Langkawi Yacht Club & Marina, moving our Asia Pacific Superyachts (APS) offices smack into the middle of the newly renovated RLYC, where we will continue to work with arriving Superyachts,” said APS Langkawi GM, Captain Charlie Dwyer.
RLYC executive director Wicky Sumdran commented: “RLYC is pleased to have Asia Pacific Superyachts presence on Langkawi and in particular at the Club with our newly expanded and upgraded facilities. APS, with its extensive networking and professionalism in handling Superyacht services, will provide the best services and facilities to visiting Superyachts to Langkawi. I view the presence of APS at RLYC as a strong alliance in driving more Superyachts to the waters of Langkawi.”
Royal Langkawi Yacht Club & Marina is positioned on the south-east of Langkawi, close to Kuah, providing easy access for Superyacht visitors to shopping, dining, entertainment, sports, transport and other businesses. A duty-free island paradise, captains and owners can benefit from notable savings in duty-free and refit services.
The Langkawi marina upgrading and expansion from 200 to 250 berths includes 4 berths for 60-70 meter superyachts and 2 berths for 80-90 meter mega yachts. The Superyacht berths are fitted with power pedestals of 400Amps for the 80-meter berths and 250Amps for the 60-meter berths. The redevelopment is targeted for the re-opening stages starting late November 2015 with full completion expected by end January 2016. Target dates are subject to various conditions and hopes are high that all will go well, as stated by Mr. Sumdran.
Since its opening in 1996, the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club has positioned itself at the forefront of the rebirth of boating in Malaysia, growing in tandem with the island’s development to emerge as the heart of sailing and yachting on Peninsular Malaysia’s northwest coast.
Fast becoming known as a Superyacht Refit Hub in Asia is Boustead Langkawi Shipyard. Captain Charlie reported: “We are working with the shipyard for yachts over 30 meters, bringing Superyacht needs full circle in Langkawi and providing excellent refit service and facilities with great value for cost.”
