Langkawi
Two haul-out options: Rebak Marina and WaveMaster. Rebak is most suitable for small yachts and do-it-yourselfers. WaveMaster is a huge, modern complex, best for superyachts, ferries and other commercial vessels.

Rebak Marina Resort
If you want to haul out and spend weeks or months or years working on your boat, the hardstand here is one of the nicest places to do it. The resort is located on its own island, and the hardstand, wrapped around the lagoon, is relaxed and quiet, with adjacent toilets, showers and cruiser restaurant, the Hard Dock Cafe. The resort staff is friendly, and the community of sailors is close-knit and welcoming. Several sailors have lived on the hard there for years. For more about Rebak, see marinas.

Travel lift for boats up to 65 tonnes and beam of 8.2 metres. Two-way haul out RM32/foot, plus 20 percent for keel depth exceeding 2.5 metres. Pressure wash RM2/foot (RM3 for catamarans), plus RM1/foot for badly fouled hulls. Boat stand RM50, scaffolding RM85, ladder RM30, crane hire RM300/hour. Unlike the wet berths, water and electricity are metered.

Rebak does not offer yacht repair services. Several private contractors on site.
