Fishing report: new boat set for Besut launch

Sport fishing in Malaysia is one of the best ways to relax and have fun. Alhamdullillah, we have been blessed with the opportunity to have our own fishing boat and we cannot wait for the squidding and fishing season on the east coast of Malaysia to start.

One of the best places for sport fishing in Malaysia is off Kuala Besut in Terengganu, just a few miles from the state of Kelantan. This is where our 47-foot boat will be moored.

But remember, it is a fishing boat, not a luxury yacht. So while it will be as comfortable as possible with sleeping bunks for about eight people and a toilet, it is designed for fishing. Therefore, don't expect a queen-sized bed, room service or a bouncy mattress.

However, we are trying to build two cabins for five people and three (or four) so, for Muslims, men and women can be separated when they sleep. Air-conditioning is another plus we hope to install.

We are still in the renovation stage. At the moment, the workers are stripping the paint and adding a lick of green, which is the mandatory colour for vessels moored in Kuala Besut.

We are hoping to have the boat ready for April, when the squid season starts. Join us in our journey as we update you on how the boat is coming along.
