Sailboat in Langkawi

My husband is in Langkawi, Malaysia until 2 Aug looking to buy a sailboat to sail towards India on a humanitarian mission. Any tips or advice on finding a boat are appreciated as I try to help him in this search via my laptop in the U.S. He is hoping to begin this journey before the end of 2014.

Re: Sailboat in Langkawi

Without checking what's available I'd be guessing that he's run out of time to a) find a boat and b) get it ready by the end of the year.

If he has found a boat it's now a moot point. If he has not now might be a good time to step back, consider what is available and to check out available repair/maintenance options - it would be almost impossible to find a boat that did not require substantial repair/upgrade etc.

Price negotiation alone could likely take more than a few months unless money is not a concern.

Why Langkawi only? My understanding is that there are more boats available in Phuket which is not that far away.

Try Pippen Marine,Yacht Charter-Broker and theres a broker working from Rebak which I think is called Langkawi Yacht Sales.
Another good site is Boatshed Phuket and Apollo Duck have heaps of listings for the area.
