This 30 meter long traditional wooden Phinisi launched in 2014. Designed and decorated using material, such as coral and shell mosaics from Indonesia, combined with fossil woods, labradorite and quartz imported from Madagascar. This liveaboard has 3 double cabins that can comfortably accomodate up to 8 guests. Its main deck offers an excellent space for seating area, sun bathing and enjoying the wonderful scenery and passing wildlife or to hang out between diving and shore activities, relaxing and enjoying the shade of one of the ship’s huge sails.
It operates in Raja Ampat between October and April, in Sulawesi between May and July and in Komodo between August and October.
The huge area of Raja Ampat represents a big marine reserve, that stretches out to the north (Waigeo and neighbouring island) and to the south-west (Misool). The whole region is a labyrinth of straits between small sandstone islands eroded by the waves. The dry season is between September to March, however, rainfalls are to be expected throughout the whole year. A striking characteristic in the Raja Ampat biology is the tight compenetration between different ecosystems. The tropical rainforest conquers the sea by pushing itself out through a complex system of small islands. Looking towards the top from the border of the reef, you can see the dark green of the forest, in a symbolic sight.
Sulawesi formerly known as Celebes is an island in Indonesia. One of the four Greater Sunda Islands, and the world’s eleventh-largest island, it is situated between Borneo and the Maluku Islands. In Indonesia, only Sumatra, Borneo, and Papua are larger in territory, and only Java and Sumatra have larger populations. Sulawesi comprises four peninsulas: the northern Minahasa Peninsula; the East Peninsula; the South Peninsula; and the South-east Peninsula. Three gulfs separate these peninsulas: the Gulf of Tomini between northern Minahasa peninsula and East Peninsula; the Tolo Gulf between East and Southeast Peninsula; and the Bone Gulf between the South and Southeast Peninsula. The Strait of Makassar runs along the western side of the island and separates the island from Borneo.
