APS Indonesia launches first ‘Indonesian Cruising Guide’

APS Indonesia has pioneered Indonesia as a superyacht destination, bringing in over 200 yachts since 2008. It is fitting that the Superyacht Agency should contribute and support the production of the first comprehensive ‘Cruising Guide to Indonesia’.

BALI – Asia Pacific Superyachts Indonesia GM, Richard Lofthouse, held a celebrated event in Phuket, Thailand this month to launch the first comprehensive ‘Cruising Guide to Indonesia’.
 
The festive event was attended by over 20 superyacht captains from all the leading yachts based in Phuket. The APS team reports it was a great evening, complete with dinner, drinks and many a shared cruising experience with each captain happily departing with a complimentary copy of the 250 page guide tucked under his/her arm. 
 
The ‘Cruising Guide to Indonesia’, written by Andy Scott over a period of 5-plus years, contains a wealth of information, including over 320 anchorages. This is the first time such a comprehensive guide to the amazing cruising destination of Indonesia has been released and the many captains in attendance were very impressed at the volume of information on offer within the Guide.

Andy has done a terrific job compiling this first edition,” said Richard Lofthouse. “As a captain himself, he has many miles under his hull in Indonesia and there is no anchorage included in the Guide which he has not personally visited.
 
The Guide also contains a section on how to bring a boat into Indonesia, written by Lofthouse. “When Andy asked me, I was really happy to contribute but worried he may not have enough space!” Lofthouse joked. “There are many dimensions and variables which we as a company over the years have looked to offset. But still they remain and Indonesia is such a huge country that there will always be variables. What we have done with the Guide is to highlight some of these and make Indonesia that little bit more accessible.
 
The Guide is on sale in Australia and Indonesia and can also be purchased through APS offices in Phuket, Thailand and Bali.
 
It made sense for Asia Pacific Superyachts to be closely aligned with the Guide. We are a company with a proven track record and trusted by captains everywhere. Clearly, when publishing a guide, you want to be associated with that level of reliability. On our side, we have worked for many years to open up Indonesia and we are just thrilled to be involved to help Andy’s guide get in all the right hands!” 
 
After the success of the event in Phuket, there is no doubt that APS achieved their early on goal.
