“It is with great pleasure that I can recommend Asia Pacific Superyachts for all your yachting requirements whilst visiting Langkawi, Malaysia. I would like to thank you for personally taking care of our immigration, customs, cruising permits, dockage, bunkering and all our provisioning needs whilst visiting Langkawi, Malaysia. Without this extensive expertise and local knowledge we would have been very lost indeed.”
Captain Philip Burgess
“During the past 8 months the MY Sensation stayed for about 6 months at Langkawi. During our stay Asia Pacific Superyachts in Langkawi was our local agent. Besides arranging our clearance and immigration they assisted us in all possible ways to make our stay in Langkawi very pleasant and easy. This agency is very pro-active in many ways to assist the crew with local provisions and companies. I was very impressed by their high level of support. It’s a very professional agency which we will certainly use again in the future and which I will recommend to other yacht captains.”
Captain Jo Bartholomeus
Yacht support services throughout Malaysia are from the Asia Pacific Superyachts head office on the duty free Island of Langkawi, the centerpiece of Malaysia’s tourist industry and premier yachting destination for the region.

And there are plenty of 5-Star hotels, internationally renowned golf courses, pristine rain forests, abundant wildlife 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. The best time for cruising Langkawi is 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.
