Welcome to Singapore
and the SEA boating
world. There are some great sailing grounds in these parts
I'd highly recommend it. Check out the Anambas Islands, Tioman and Nikoi to get an idea. Things to consider when buying
Berths are hard to come by in SG so call around and get your name on the waiting lists.
There is a 7% tax on imports, avoidable if u register the boat outside of SG, or buy a SG registered boat.
It's definitely a buyer's market here with most vessels still for sale
18months after I was looking for my cat.
Regional prices are still pretty high when compared to the US or EU. Aus seems the exception on the expensive side.
Depending on what u looking for shipping
or sailing your purchase
from further afield may be cheaper.
In SG you need to complete your basic proficiency theory and then practical. There is waiting list to do both so book now.
Happy to discuss further.
