Langkawi Yacht Broker’s tagline “It’s smooth sailing with YBC” lives up to customers as they expect nothing but great results. YBC has a wide international client network and comes with minimum fuss when it comes to having your needs fulfilled for buying or selling boats or yachts.
Possessing decades of experience, Managing Director Paul Jackson is just the man when it comes to liaising with buyers and sellers, putting the customer’s interests first.

The Royal Langkawi Yacht Club is Malaysia’s only award-winning marina and host of the Royal Langkawi International Regatta with 250-berths that can accommodate a variety of vessels including sailing boats and mega-yachts up to 90 metres.
With the marina’s perfect location in the heart of Kuah, you are within walking distance from plenty of duty-free shops, eateries, banks, a ferry terminal (Jetty Point), and even the offices of Immigration and Customs. This allows easy access to shopping, transport, and other business facilities.
The Royal Langkawi Yacht Club is right by popular tourist destinations like Eagle Rock and home to another hotspot, The Fisherman’s Wharf Langkawi, which has a multitude of local and international restaurants and bars, shops and cafes, yacht charter companies, travel agencies, dive and tour operators, and a convenience store. Located on the south-eastern corner of Langkawi, the marina is the launching point for a host of exciting tours, activities, and experiences in which you can explore Langkawi’s spectacular tropics.

MSA is part of Marine Solutions Asia Pacific Group which is a direct manufacturer distributor for marine equipment popular brands such as MasterVolt, B&G, Simrad and Vetus. Managing Director David Wharton says the competitive edge of MSA lies in its ability to serve different yachts’ requirement.
“We are very customer-oriented, and the quick response time enables us to remain a preferred choice for seafarers to order spare parts for equipment on board. “Despite our modest size, our quality services speak volume through word-of-mouth among the yachties,’ Wharton says.
The outlet offers navigation system design, boat hardware essentials, sales and after-sales series for essentials for yachties. Wharton and his co-owner Sarah Nicholson also have a team of certified installation engineers and electricians to attend to individual needs.
