IN MALAYSIA

 

First time sailors to Langkawi are spoilt for choice with several operators providing either relaxing or adventurous cruises, depending upon the weather and customer preferences.

 

 

It is possible to explore Langkawi?s natural attractions on day trips, sunset cruises or journeys of several days. Shorter trips are popular with holidaymakers, new to sailing.

This 21 m., two-masted vessel offers regular daily sailing trips around Langkawi?s deserted northern parts, sunset cruises or it is available for private charters of several days duration. Guests can sit back, relax, eat, drink and observe the wildlife (maybe see a pod of dolphins) or be energetic and swim, fish and explore various limestone caves. While Stardust is fully crewed, guests are encouraged to ?learn the ropes? of sailing and participate in hoisting and trimming the sails. The yacht features a ?seawaterjacuzzi? consisting of a boom net for lying hack in and being gently massaged by the seawater.
