There are boats between Singapore and several islands south in Indonesia, mostly a couple of smaller less known islands. And I know about a ferry between Medan and Penang in Malaysia. Maybe there are more options, but I don't know them.

Ferry services from Indonesia to Malaysia are only available in Sumatra. So unless you're going to be in Sumatra, you will have to fly into Malaysia.
