WITH 29 CHAPTERS CRUISING GUIDE INDONESIA COVERS THE WHOLE OF THE INDONESIAN ARCHIPELAGO
Sailing in Indonesia is definitely on the rise and more and more yachts are visiting every year. The Indonesian government is pushing hard for development in the marine sector and new facilities are being built and funded as demand increases. Government regulations are changing for the better and the old large scale corruption seems to have been eradicated and sailors are taking note. Instead of hurriedly passing through the country yachts are now beginning to linger and some are even choosing to stay year around. As this part of Asia continues to develop rapidly we advise all sailors planning to sail in Indonesia to contact Cruising Guide Indonesia in order to be well-informed on the current hurdles and difficulties you might encounter while sailing through Indonesia.

About our downloadable GPX files for Chartplotters:
“This is AWESOME! So my primary chartplotter is iNavX and the names look perfect. I can’t tell you how excited I am to use this. It’s a constant issue with guides that you’re looking at where you want to be going, and trying to figure out where in the guide talks about that harbor/area. Now i just look at my chartplotter and say “Ah Chapter 11 Wngp-(A)”. This is gold man, gold!”
