Langkawi Boatyards, Repairs &áMaintenance

 
 
There are several boatyards in Langkawi some having haul out facilities for all kinds of yachts including mega yachts. However, in most marinas the repairing jobs are done through third party contractors unless you want to do it yourself. 
 
 
You should be careful while contracting out a job, particularly when you are absent while the job is carried out. In several instances in Langkawi, the quality of repair jobs done by 3rd party contractors have been found to be sub par and in several other instances, the bills charged have been very high. 
 
So always document the job requirement and specifications in details and take a firm quotation from the vendor before the work starts. This will help avoid any surprises at a later stage. 
 
Here are the top boatyards and boat repair centers in Langkawi. I have also given contacts of spare part suppliers along with their offerings &ásupplies.

This is one of the largest boatyards located in Kuah town with modern boat repairing &árefit facilities. The boatyard is ideal for both mega and mid sized yachts and ferries. They have their Head Office in Australia. The minimum depth of water here is 7 meters.  
 
The facilities include: 
  • Two travelifts - 140 &á500 tons.
