LABUAN (Bernama) -- The Labuan Public Marina has been attracting yacthers from across the globe, who make a stopover there to rest and replenish supplies before continuing with their journey.

Many of the yacthers also take a vacation in this duty free island blessed with numerous natural and man made wonders.

Officially opened as soon as the island was elevated to a Federal Territory more than three decades ago, the Labuan Public Marina has all the facilities for yacthers to break their sea journey or wait for the right weather before continuing with their journey.

Seafarers who anchor at the marina will literally be parking their yachts downtown Labuan and greeted by friendly locals and a myriad of facilities - docking berths, wifi connectivity, restrooms, and water and electricity supply points at the pontoons that are illuminated at night.

Apart from being located in a prime location close to the town and within walking distance from the customs and immigration offices, the marina itself offers easy access to the nearby duty-free shops, business facilities, shopping malls, ferry terminal providing access to the mainland, hotels, car and bike rentals, and convenience stores.....
