Buying Monohull in Malaysia/Langkawi

Has anyone bought or tried to buy a boat in Langkawi or anywhere in Malaysia in general?

Is Langkawi a close knit sailing community where every broker knows every surveyor and integrity is in jeopardy?

I've got one web site with very well inventoried yachts at decent prices so I'm not sure to be suspicious or have found somewhere with good value for money.

Is there a straightforward process with above the board legal checks and exchange of funds for boat without delays?

Apparently, Malaysia still closed for tourists (I could be wrong) but heard that Langkawi Sailing Club may open in January 2021.

Appreciate anyone with experience of buying there, or even other good locations in Malaysia, better than Langkawi for value for money.

Re: Buying Monohull in Malaysia/Langkawi

The borders of Malaysia remained closed.
There aren't a lot of boatyard offering refit in the island, so most have to go for Satun, which unfortunately close to travel as well.
I think there are more choice in Thailand, though Langkawi tend to have more "world cruiser" type of boat - which means that they are robust but quite tired.
