If you are concidering storing your boat for a while my choise is Royal Langkawi Yacht Club, firstly as a member of the PCYC you will get a further discount of 20% there are a number of people taking care of boats in the marina giving vairyed levels of care,,
Secondly ,on December 26 2004 there were a series of waves that totally destroyed the other 2 mariners and many of the boats in them very few boat escaped damage at Telega Harbour and Rebak,, However at RLYC they only suffered 1 broken power cable and a couple of masts came together, call Zack and ask for a quote, for the best deal offer to pay in advance. The quickest check in -check out is at the ferry terminal 200m from RLYC Harbour master is up stairs and customs and immergration on the ground floor. Avoid Fridays as its a holiday and they have a longggg lunch.
At the time of writing Diesel is 1.90 RM at the service station and between 2.80- 3.00RM at the marina pumps. so rent a car and tour the servos they require you to pay in advance
CAR RENTAL, you can get them at the ferry terminal medium size for about 70- 100RM plus a deposite, I use Muza call him and he will deliver to the RLYC its about 50-60RM a day, if you carry fuel in his car put newspaper on the carpet please it will come with almost no fuel in it as do all rentals on the island, his phone number is 0194793738.
