The exclusive establishment has added new berths and after completing a renovation and expansion of 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”, says APS Langkawi GM Captain Charlie Dwyer. 

Referring to the new arrangement with APS, the RLYC executive director Wicky Sumdran reports: "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,” added Sumdran.

The club and marina are located on the southeast side of Langkawi, close to Kuah which is the main town and the island’s point for ferries between the mainland and Langkawi - providing easy visitors for shopping, dining, entertainment, sports, transport and other businesses. The offices of Immigration and Customs are also within walking distance from the marina. A duty-free island paradise, captains and owners can reap significant savings in duty-free and refit services.

The Langkawi marina upgrading and expansion from 200-berths to a 250-berth marina includes six berths to accommodate superyachts, four berths for 60-70 metre superyachts and two-berths for 80-90 metre superyachts. The superyacht berths are fitted with power pedestals of 400Amps for the 80m berths and 250Amps for the 60m berths.

The existing marina has been refitted with brand new electrical cables, new water pipes, fire-fighting system and new fuel dock system along with a newly planned Pump Out station. Full completion is expected by the end of January 2016.
