Sailing in Indonesia is definitely on the rise and more and more yachts are visiting every year. The Indonesian government is pushing hard for development in the marine sector and new facilities are being built and funded as demand increases. Government regulations are changing for the better and the old large scale corruption seems to have been eradicated and sailors are taking note. Instead of hurriedly passing through the country yachts are now beginning to linger and some are even choosing to stay year around. As this part of Asia continues to develop rapidly we advise all sailors planning to sail in Indonesia to contact Cruising Guide Indonesia in order to be well-informed on the current hurdles and difficulties you might encounter while sailing through Indonesia.
