Singapore is the large island (50kms east-west x 25kms north-south) at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. Its geographical position has made it the key port in Southeast Asia and a cross-roads for major east-west shipping routes.
It is by far the busiest transhipment port in the world and a close second only to Shanghai in total containers shipped each year. As such, the waters around Singapore are well patrolled and the movement of all vessels is closely monitored.
This island state is the most developed in the region, with excellent facilities, communications, public transport, recreational activities and international travel connections.
Embassies or consulates of all nations can be found in the city, which is a modern, vibrant multi-cultural nation state with all the facilities a sophisticated visitor would expect – including the price.
All kinds of yacht equipment and spare parts are readily found and good shipyard facilities exist in the western, Jurong, Tuas areas.
