The unrivaled facilities as well as natural beauty of Langkawi make the surrounding ninety-nine islands of the fabulous Malaysia yacht charter location, nestled just south of the border of Thailand and only 98 NM from Phuket, the perfect duty free port for Superyachts.
“Superyachts have discovered Langkawi is a place ‘to get things done’ – as a duty free port, which includes a yard with a 500 Ton Travel lift and duty-free spare parts, it’s a great destination and most boats send their spare parts to Langkawi”, explains Captain Charlie Dwyer, of APS Langkawi: “Fuel is duty-free and cheaper than anywhere in Asia. Wine & liquor and spare parts are also duty free and very inexpensive. Langkawi is a place to get things done.”
In or near Langkawi are plenty of 5-Star hotels, internationally renowned golf courses and a town center with all the modern facilities of a small city, along with an international airport. The island offers a wealth of cruising opportunities with natural protection from the elements year round with the best time during the Easterly Monsoon season, stretching from October through April, when conditions provide a gentle 10-15 knot North Easterly breeze providing calm seas and blue skies.
APS yacht support services throughout the enchanting Malaysia yacht holiday destination are directed by Captain Charlie and Andrew Middleton from the head office on the duty free Island of Langkawi, the centerpiece of Malaysia’s tourist industry and premier yachting destination for the region.
