Sail-World.com : Indonesia goes yachting friendly as first ever Yacht Show staged
Indonesia goes yachting friendly as first ever Yacht Show staged


'Now becoming friendly to the roving sailor'    .

It's good news for roving cruising sailors, no matter the size of your boat. Indonesia is the latest country to show a major interest in the value of yachting and sailing to the economy, as well as an outlet for the new millionaires who are looking for somewhere to spend their money.

The first ever Yacht Show 2013 held in Jakarta June 8th & 9th, was designed to set the pace as one of the leading luxury yachting lifestyle exhibitions in the region, displayed a range of yachts and leisure crafts along with suppliers of quality services to the yachting world.

First ever Indonesia Yacht Show -  .. .  

For a long time the bureaucracy that was a feature of attempting to cruise around the magnificent islands of the archipelago nation was so severe that it meant many cruising sailors avoided the country.

Alternatively, they travelled as a part of rallies so that the bureaucracy difficulties could be overcome.

The government’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy gave its formal backing (to be found on the Indonesia Yacht Show's website and throughout the media leading up to the event), announcing: 'The government has prepared a Presidential Decree No. 79 about how they will facilitate the ships sailing into Indonesia, said Director General Of The Tourism Destination Development, Firmansyah Rahim, alluding to work underway to make it easier for yachts entering and cruising in Indonesia.' 

Yachting in Indonesia starts with the very rich:
Jakarta is home to many of the country’s burgeoning nouveau riche and with the luxury yacht and lifestyle event in their own backyard, the yachting event is of keen interest to area millionaires, a population segment which is rapidly growing according to the Credit Suisse Research Institute: 'The number of Indonesian millionaires will almost double to 207,000 by 2017, from around 104,000 in 2012.' From the ‘Indonesian Millionaires The Global Wealth Report’ by the Credit Suisse Research Institute, 'Indonesia’s total wealth increased by US$420 billion to $1.8 trillion from January 2010 to June 2011 and was among the top 20 highest contributors of wealth growth.'

Indonesian cruising routes - and there are so many tiny islands -  .. .  

Among debuting exhibitors, the Asia Pacific Superyachts Indonesia team, led by Captain Jimmy Blee and Richard Lofthouse, were part of the new yachting extravaganza showcasing the latest yachts to this growing class of Indonesian millionaires with massive dispensable income.

Captain Jimmy said APS Indonesia enjoyed a notable presence at the first Indonesian Yachts Show, reporting: 'With Indonesia emerging as the ‘go to’ cruising destination in Asia, it was only fitting that Asia Pacific Superyachts had a strong and profiled presence during the event held at the Batavia Marina Jakarta.'

Captain Jimmy is often in demand by Superyachts as he has led many a fantastic cruising journey and comes equipped with a wealth of experience to share in designing a custom itinerary (visit www.asia-pacific-superyachts.com for further information).

Captain Jimmy believes that as the fledgling Superyacht industry grows in Indonesia and more and more sailors discover the amazing cruising potential of the region, there will be a need for agents to provide honest and transparent services of the highest level to all visiting and domestic vessels.

Next year’s dates for the Indonesia yacht and luxury lifestyle event in Jakarta has already been announced for 7-8 June.
