This boat is a new and very spacious traditional sailing yacht available for charter in the stunning Indonesian archipelago which is the world’s largest archipelago, with more than 17,500 islands. Broad-beamed and well-ballasted, she offers stability and comfort. No detail has been left to chance in ensuring the utmost comfort, safety and enjoyment in some of the most exciting and less explored parts of the world.
The combination of traditional Phinisi design and new technology makes it a totally unique luxury super-yacht. Beautifully handcrafted in 100-year old teak and ironwood, and finished by the finest cabinet makers in Bali, the attention to detail is unmatched by any other traditional Phinisi ever built.
The vessel offers all modern convenience, from air-conditioned cabins to satellite communications. Also, unique among such traditional boats, it has quiet boat mode where she can cruise for prolonged periods under electrical power with all her engines shut down.
A charter on our super-yacht is a unique opportunity to explore the fascinating Indonesian archipelago and beyond, to Burma, Thailand, and the Andaman islands in total privacy and luxury. Whether diving in some of the world’s richest coral reefs, climbing smoking volcanoes, anchoring in secluded lagoons, or experiencing the fascinating cultural and natural diversity of villages and islands rarely seen by outsiders. This boat offers the ultimate escape and unforgettable holidays.
Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, is an excellent yacht charter destination. The coast is rugged, tropical, with fine sandy beaches and inlets. Lush rice fields and the volcanic backdrop offer unforgettable excursions on land, or equally appreciated from the decks of the ship. Bali is home to a rich visual culture, incredible monuments and 20,000 temples. There is also fine diving around Bali.
Our pick of Bali is Amed, located at the Eastern tip and far from the tourist madness of Kuta. Amed is all about the ocean. The waters are shallow and free of the strong oceanic currents of West Bali, are very safe, offering easy snorkeling and swimming. It is easily accessible by yacht charter from Benoa and Sarangan, the main yacht-harbours of Bali. Read about Amed and our selected choice of activities.
The Banda Sea stretches from Sulawesi in the west to Tual and on to Papua New Guinea in the East. Itineraries might include moving East from Sualawesi and on to the Savu Sea or Komodo National Park. Charters into the middle of the Banda sea will take you to the remote Banda Islands. These islands were much fought over during the spice trade and until the 19th century were the only source of nutmeg and mace. The colonial influence is apparent nowadays charming Dutch colonial houses and crumbling forts.
Komodo, an Island within the Komodo National Park is a remote, desolate yet beautiful part of the Indonesian archipelago famous for its wildlife above and below the seas. The Park consists of 29 Islands with a total population of 4,000. Komodo is perhaps most famous for its Komodo dragon – the largest lizard in the world growing up to three metres in length. Through on land excursions, you can see the Lizard in its remote natural, savannah habitat. The park is also extremely rich in marine life.
Raja Amapt lies off Indonesia’s West Papua district and itself is made up of 1,500 islands. It is a true divers paradise and contains highest variance in marine diversity in the world. The area is relatively undisturbed by humans and extremely remote, and Raja Ampat offers stunning uninhabited beaches and idyllic islands to explore at leisure.
Sulawesi is situated in the central north of the Indonesian Archipelegio. It offers some of the best diving in all of Indonesia. The island is rich in cultural heritage from large megalithic statues to rich local indigenous culture and traditions. There is plenty of wildlife on land as well – the Island is home to some 77 endemic bird species.
Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea is a mystical place rich in culture, history and wildlife. It is at the far East of the boats’s route and offers a different experience to other destinations in our charter. With Evidence of human settlement for 35,000 years, and a strong link to traditional tribal roots, Papua New Guinea is today one the most culturally diverse countries on earth with over 850 Indigenous languages. Vast, dense, tropical rainforest cover the Island’s mountainous interior. Wildlife is an exciting part of Papua New Guinea’s tapestry. There is yet more great diving around Papua New Guinea, with untouched coral reefs and spectacular WW2 wrecks.
Thailand is the Western most point of the vessel’s charter. Thailand has iconic beaches, exceptional food and rich cultural history. Although the most popular tourist destination in South East Asia, and certainly more busy than all other destinations in our charter, there is still ample opportunity to charter through beautiful island scenery, and find world class diving. Our chef caters his delicious offering to include fresh Thai ingredients when cruising in these waters. The society, which is heavily influenced by Buddhism, offers lots of cultural interest points and stunning Thai architecture.
