Re: Yacht Registration in Langkawi?

You mentioned a cheap Norseman 447 at Langkawi, Its not worth crossing oceans to see it.

Re: Yacht Registration in Langkawi?

In 2014 I found a boat to buy in Phuket, but it was much simpler for a non-Thai to do it in Langkawi. The Pippen Marin Office at the RLYC did the paperwork. It took some months to complete the process, but worked fine.

Re: Yacht Registration in Langkawi?

Quick update.... I found a great agency Eden Bay, who handled changing my registration to Langkawi.

No need to go there...just a Deletion Certificate from my SVG registry and they handled all the paperwork.

much cheaper annual fee than the Caribbean flags and no bullshit corporate ownership requirements.
Highly recommend Eden Bay

Hi, I did a Google search for Eden Bay Langkawi but found nothing. Can you provide some contact details or suggest how to search them? Thanks

Re: Yacht Registration in Langkawi?

I was given the contact and recommendation from 2 other yacht owners.

Apparently they used to do for Simpson Marine before now starting on their own.

There is no tax for pleasure craft for Malaysia. Maybe that is the incentive.
If a simple transfer of name won't work can you explain how you did it. I am also planning to buy a boat in California and have it moored in Marina Del Rey for at least a year. Since I am also not a US citizen I would face the same problem as you. Is it possible to have it registered as a DMV vehicle in Cal.? Someone said I could DMV register it in Florida. Can you advice if it is better to have it registered in Langkawi as opposed to the US.
