Indonesia marina wins highest Marina Industries Association ranking


Nongsa Point Marina & Resort is the first marina in Indonesia to receive Global Gold Anchor accreditation with a rating of 5 Gold Anchors from the Marina Industries Association.

Richard Lofthouse, managing director of the Asia Pacific Superyachts Indonesia office, reported the award.

“Nongsa Point has been used by Asia Pacific Superyachts and our clients for some time as a jumping off point to the beautiful Riau islands, as well as for boats heading further South,” Lofthouse stated in a news release.

Nongsa Point Marina & Resort, on the northeast of Batam Island, is a 35-minute ferry ride from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, 20 km across the Singapore Strait. The marina has 65 floating concrete berths, including two berths for mega yachts up to 130 feet. Utilities, sewerage pump-out and fuel are available.
