Yacht Description

Welcome Onboard – Luxury Traditional Indonesian Phinisi

From the beginning the idea was to design a boat, which was elegant, sturdy, and tailored to the needs of those who enjoy five-star service and luxury. A luxurious yet traditional Indonesian Phinisi that will take you on a journey of discovery to some of the most stunning diving spots in the world.

Experience diving in the rich waters of the Indonesian archipelago and meet people from the many different cultures on the diverse Indonesian islands that you would never have the opportunity to see while staying in more tourist-heavy areas.

There is also a separate diving deck with hot water showers to warm up after a night dive.

This boat offers a spectacular experience for divers as well as non-divers, with bright airy cabins, spacious bathrooms and a large front deck where you can socialize, eat under the stars or just relax in the Indonesian sunshine.

All indoor and outdoor living areas, decks, and cabins are made with antique teak salvaged from old Joglos, which not only gives the feel of  “real Indonesia”, but has helped to reduce the use of Indonesia’s disappearing rainforests.

 

The Spirit & Destination of the Vessel

In Komodo your dream can come true. Komodo and Rinca are the only places where we can still find these Komodo Dragons in the wild.

These small, brown scorched-earth islands fringed with sandy beaches are lapped by the clear waves of the national park, where you may even see the dragons patrolling the beach or viewing you from a high rocky outcrop.

Below the surface there will be many more wonderful creatures you may have never seen before in your life, like the hobbit worm or a rhynopia, a lady bug or skeleton shrimp.

Komodo is not only famous for it macro life, there is an abundance of fish and corals due to its mineral rich waters. Don’t be surprised to see some beautiful pelagic, like sharks or mantas.

The water is not always warm, in fact it can be decidedly cool. The seas are not always calm, the currents can rage but the abundance of pelagics, more critters and interesting macro-action than you could imagine, the dazzling colours and diversity, make scuba diving here truly  legendary.

Due to it geographic location, right in between the Indian ocean and the Flores sea in the North, we can expect stronger currents.

Dive Areas:

Castle Rock, Crystal Rock, Karang Makassar (Manta, Manta, Manta !!!!), Cannibal Rock, The Cauldron, The Shot Gun, Cannibal Rock …more than 40 diving sites.
