Marine Industry players in Malaysia

 

As a result of the 2004 Yangon to Manila Bay Symposium were Marine Tourism activities took center stage, the Malaysian Tourism Ministry is now promoting the region as a new playground for cruise liners, mega yacht berthing and sailing pursuits in general. An initiative taken by Bpk Feisol Hashim - Chairman of GAHAWISRI the "Indonesian Marine Tourism Association" to create a Yahoo forum for regional Marine Tourism players has resulted in some spirited online discussion and a interactive exchange of ideas on the merits of forming a ASEAN Marine Tourism Council (AMTC). Interested parties can join in or browse the comments at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ASEANMarineTourismCouncil/

The main aim of the 1st Asia Superyacht Conference held in Singapore 2009 was to promote the ASEAN region as the new cruising playground to the world and the key objective of the was the formation of the Singapore Superyacht Association which will become the umbrella body of the organisations involved in marine tourism in the region. This platform is for marine tourism operators and marketers as well as governments and statutory bodies to meet in order to enhance the growth of marine tourism with a regulated and coordinated approach. On a trip from Yangon to Manila Bay about 2/3rds of the coastline is Malaysian, stretching from Langkawi, Penang, Lumut, Port Klang down the Malacca Straits to Singapore and Sebana Cove in Johor, all the way across to Miri (Sarawak) and Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) in East Malaysia with little Brunei wedged in-between.

At the 1st Singapore Superyacht Conference it became very apparent that most foreign delegates didn't know much about the megayacht facilities already available in South East Asian waters and what the Asian region in general has to offer owners, skippers, crew and their guests. In the final SS Conference - AY Summary we wowed to develop a one-stop Marina Guide and have carried out some updating and new inclusions to the long standing Asian Directory that already contains web links and email contacts for most Asian National Organisations, Sailing Clubs and Major Events

After forming the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Association, the 2nd Asia Superyacht Conference is slated in Singapore from 12-14 October. This year there are two key objectives: firstly, the development of the Superyacht building industry in Asia with a specific focus on China and Taiwan; and secondly, enhancing the Asia-Pacific region as the world's third biggest cruising destination.

An attempt to list all the Marine Industry players in Malaysia and Brunei which could be likely members of a Malaysian Marine Industry Association (MIA) and the Malaysian Marine Tourism Council can be found below. Please take a minute to look if there are any businesses we have missed out on or other categories that should be included so a full directory can be completed.
