The Phinisi Charter, an Indonesia Yacht Charter is an example of rare artistic craft, even a sailing masterpiece. Envisioned by its owners, designed by architects, Sotyrys and Alexander Pantopulos, in collaboration with world’s famous designer and builder of many outstanding tall ships, Zygmunt Choreń, and hand-made by Konjo people on the shores of South Sulawesi – the yacht boasts a length of 53 meters and contains 7 cabins including one magnificent owners two-level suite master cabin (48 sq m) with adjoining children’s room, captain’s cabin and 5 guest staterooms with queen sized beds (14 sqm each) with en-suite bathrooms– two of the 6 bathrooms are arranged with furnishings and accessories designed by Philippe Starck; two further bathrooms contain furnishings by Antonio Citterio; the remaining 2 bathrooms are designed in accordance with Patricia Urquiola’s bathroom salon design philosoph. Each detail was consciously created with the aim of ensuring maximum comfort, safety and joy for the travelers. All the boat’s details and elements are made of natural and noble materials and you can also find pieces from Dedon, Minotti or Walter Knoll chairs.
The yacht can comfortably sleep 16 charter guests in 7 cabins including the owner’s two-level suite master cabin (48 sq m) with adjoining children’s room . There is also accommodation for the vessel’s highly trained crew, sleeping in a captain’s cabin and two crew cabins.
The decks have 4 cm teak planks, with the domination of exotic sono rosewood on walls and raster ceilings in the cabins. The cabins are decorated with sculptures, ornaments and low relief carvings originating from the cultures of Asia, Maori Islands and Polynesia. The juxtaposition of dark wood with snow-white objects creates a unique atmosphere.The traditional lines of Phinisi Charter create a sentimental return to the classical Asian yacht charter sailing vessel. Broad lines and beam provide massive space for everything, two domineering masts, topsails, four jibs – all make up this special vessels Standing Rig. Its running rig supports steel-colored fabric carrying 600 square meter of sail, designed by North Sails, all flying over the dark-wood interior and gold teak decks that give this phinisi schooner both classical and original feel at the same time. Although the external shape of this yacht presents an untouched classic feel, its interiors are the example of the absolute luxury in design.
The luxury superyacht is fully crewed with a gourmet chef, cabin staff and equipped with Bang & Olufsen audio systems and Bega lighting, as well as diving and leisure facilities, jet skis and jet tender which offer endless options of spending time.
The superyacht sails mostly in Indonesian waters: Komodo Archipelago, Raja Ampat, Papua but Thailand, Myanmar and Andaman Islands as well.
Alor is the largest island in the Alor Archipelago in South Eastern Indonesia with an area of approximately 2800km². Kalabahi is the only town on the island with a population of about 60,000. The variety of goods obtainable in Kalabahi is surprising considering its size and location.
Alor is of volcanic origin and has a very rugged terrain. The region near Kalabahi is the only flat area. This is why the Dutch placed the capital and the main harbour here (Alor-Kecil) in 1911.
Life here is simple and wonderful offering a mix of cultures and filled with people of generous spirit.
Alor can be cruised in either May – July or November – December.
Ambon island is mountainous and a large part of the island is covered by fertile forests with an area of 775km² and only 51km/32 miles long. The tiny islands of Ambon, Banda, Saumlaki, Ternate and Tidore, among the thousands of islands in the Moluccas seas, changed the course of world history from the 15th century onwards.
Ambon Island is in North Eastern Indonesia and located at the centre of the Maluku Islands (Moluccas), better known as “The Spice Islands” that have a fascinating history.
These islands triggered the European Age of Exploration: Christopher Columbus set off in search of the Spice Islands in the Far East and sailed west… and discovered America. Vasco da Gama sailed south and discovered the long route around Africa’s Cape of Good Hope in 1498 to finally reach India. Only later did the Portuguese finally discover the sea route to Banda and Ambon only to be followed within a century by the Spanish who were then replaced by the Dutch who called the current Republic of Indonesia “The Dutch East Indies”
Flores is one of the Lesser Sunda Islands: an island arc with an approximate area of 14,000 km² and extending east from the island of Java. Its population is approximately 2 million and the largest town is Maumere.
The name Flores is Portuguese (as well as Spanish) for “flowers”. The Portuguese traders and missionaries arrived here in the 16th century and their influence is still discernible. Much like the island of Ambon, Flores was part of the larger “Dutch East Indies”.
The Roman Catholic island of Flores is located west of the Alor Archipelago and the island of Lembata, east of Sumbawa and the nearby Komodo Islands.
In 2012, Komodo National Park was officially voted one of the The Seven Wonders of the World.
The Island is a designated National Park and an experience not to be missed! Komodo Island is located in the centre of the Indonesian archipelago wedged between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores.
The UNESCO World Heritage site is blessed with secluded beaches, amazing coral reefs and stunning crystal clear waters and of course, it is home to the famous Komodo dragons
Lombok and Gilis
Like Flores, Lombok forms part of the chain of the Lesser Sunda Islands which falls in the Nusa Tenggara province, with the Lombok Strait separating it from Bali to the West and the Alas Strait between it and Sumbawa to the east. Lombok is approximately 80km East to West and North to South. Matram in the west is Lombok’s capital and a good point from which to do day trips to the surrounding areas. Nearby Senggigi is superbly positioned along a stretch of sweeping bays. In east Lombbok, the very scenic Sumbawa offers low key tourism and some good surf breaks. Just offshore, Lombok is surrounded by a number of smaller islands known locally as the Gilis.
Mount Rinjani is a semi active volcano and Indonesia’s second highest volcano reaching 12,224 ft (3,276m). Understandably, Mount Rinjani dominates the island from its central location and is held in awe by the islanders who regularly ascend the steep trail to the crater rim.
The highlands of Lombok are forest clad and mostly undeveloped. The lowlands are highly cultivated: rice, soyabeans, coffee, tobacco, cotton, cinnamon, cacao, cloves, cassava, corn, coconuts, copra, bananas and vanilla are the major crops grown in the island’s fertile soils. The southern part of the island is fertile but drier, especially toward the southern coastline.
Sorong is the gateway to the Raja Ampat archipelago in Indonesia. The name Raja Ampat, when literally translated, means “Four Kings” referring to the islands Salawati, Batanta, Waigeo and Misool. These are off the northwest tip of Bird’s Head Peninsula which is comprised of these four major islands. These four islands are in turn surrounded by approximately 1500 untouched smaller islands with superb pristine beaches and sheer ragged limestone cliffs plunging into turquoise oceans.
The best time to visit Raja Ampat is between October and April.
Sulawesi (formerly Celebes) is one of the main islands of Indonesia, and the 11th largest island in the world. With four spindly arms spinning outward, Sulawesi’s spidery shape is easily recognisable. It is one of the four Greater Sunda Islands and situated between Borneo and the Maluku Islands.
Sulawesi comprises four peninsulas: the northern Minahaha Peninsula; the East Peninsula; the South Peninsula; and the South east Peninsula. Three gulfs separate these peninsulas: the Gulf of Tomini between northern Minahahas peninsula and East Peninsula; the Tolo Gulf between East and Southeast Peninsula; and the Bone Gulf between the South and the Southeast Peninsula. The Strait of Makassar runs along the western side of the island and separates the island from Borneo.
