MPA reminds ship masters, owners and agents of vessels operating in Singapore port waters that anchoring in all areas outside the designated anchorages is prohibited.

Applying from 26 Dec 2018, stricter penalties will apply, under the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (Port) Regulations, to offenders whose vessels are anchored outside the designated anchorages.

Offenders may, upon conviction, be liable for fines of up to $20,000 and $2,000 for every day or part of a day that the offence continues after conviction.
