The Sabang Marine Festival (SMF) is an annual event in Aceh that has been run by the Board Management of Sabang Free Port and Free Trade Zone (BPKS) since 2015. The SMF is held to attract the international yacht community to the deep, well protected port of Sabang. Especially for Sabang the BPKS has introduced a service permit procedure that facilitates One Stop Service. During the SMF, yachties and guests will be able to enjoy local art and culture and to interact with the artists and also join in traditional games with the locals as well as enjoy the diving and other attractions in Aceh.
The 1st SMF successfully attracted 17 yachts, the 2nd SMF had 20 yachts and the 3rd SMF brought 26 yachts to Sabang. It is hoped that the yachties that come will become promotion agents for Sabang to the world yacht community, encouraging them to include Sabang in their itineries. BPKS is also exploring co-operation with the yachting communities in Langkawi (Malaysia) and Phuket (Thailand) which are part of the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle. This year, BPKS will hold the 4th SMF and expects that many more yachties will come to participate in it.
