Luxury Yacht Charter Malaysia
Yacht Charter in Malaysia
Sailing in Malaysia can be divided neatly into two segments: cruising around the collection of 90 islands dotted off the north-west coast of Malaysia, including the popular destinations of Penang and Langkawi; or gently pottering amongst the 17 islands off the south-east coast of the country. Guests will be spoilt for choice. Both areas boast unlimited access to tropical islands, clear blue waters and a wide range of excellent yachting amenities.

Weather in Malaysia
Due to Malaysia’s location close to the Equator, it is hot throughout the year. The wettest period is between October and April. On the east coast of the Peninsular heavy rain fall between November and February can cause problems and many resorts on this side of the country close during this period.
