Unfortunately we are having security issues here in Old Town. It seems a long tail waits till sunset then proceeds to try and break in to unattended visiting boats. We have informed the local authorities with little success. Please keep this in mind if visiting us !
We are pleased to anounce our participation in the marine traffic project to supply coverage for our area. We hope this enables people to keep an eye on thier boats and the state of traffic. Please visit the marinetraffic.com site for further info.
AIS is here to stay . Having witnessed first hand the instalation of both radar and ais reception here in Koh Lanta it is safe to say you now need it in Thai waters. It is now also required for check in at Phuket . I feel sure this will expand to other provinces shortly.
As the moorings have been widely abused of late by charter boats,fishing boats and tour boats we have decided to take them out only when booked. Please allow 3 days for mooring placement if you have booked. Many thanks.
Wishing all the best to people around the world! Hope everybody enjoys this time of year .
Peninsular Yacht Chandlery Services are under new management and you should make this a stopping point in Langkawi as things have changed a lot
As AIS looks to be a requirement for visiting Yachts in Thailand we are currently sourcing units that can be rented or bought at a reasonable cost in the very near future. Watch this space.
We are proud to announce that Wireless internet is available to any boats in a 3 mile radius of old town. There will be a small charge to try and recover the outlay on the equipment. The service is 7mbs broadband. Look forward to seeing you out there.
