An updated Big Boat Quay (BBQ) in Bali was full recently, thanks to relaxed regulations for visiting yachts, according to Indo Yacht Support (IYS). One 40m spent several months there and has booked to return later this year, the company said in a statement.
A public-private partnership with the port authority assures the lease, allowing foreign investment to put in full length pontoon shore access, fenced parking, a small office, and permanent dockmasters.
The marina caters to yachts larger than 30m, and the new general manager of the partnership has committed to providing shore power up to three-phase 150Kw and potable water by the end of August, IYS said.
The marina is within the port’s ISPS area, affording visiting yachts security and a “good degree of anonymity”, the statement said.
Phase two of the marina is in the planning stages. For more information, visit indoyachtsupport.com.
