Indonesia building marinas to attract yachts

ADVERTISEMENT

The Tourism Ministry in Indonesia is working toward attracting up to 5,000 yachts to visit in 2019.

“We have set a target of attracting 1,500 yacht visits in 2015; 4,000 in 2018; and 5,000 in 2019,” Tourism Minister Arief Yahya said during the 2015 Indonesia Yacht Forum in Jakarta on Aug. 21, according to a story in The Jakarta Post.

To accommodate them, the ministry plans to build 100 marinas in the next five years. Four of them will be built this year, including one in Banyuwangi, East Java.

“The turning of the sod for the marina in Banyuwangi will take place in September,” Arief said.
