One of the Underwater Wonders of Our Planet

Traditional Indonesian Schooner

Sorong, Indonesia

Our vessel is a double-masted traditional Indonesian sailboat that offers the unique opportunity to explore the incredibly remote, unique, and mystical Raja Ampat archipelago. The boat was built in Sulawesi in 2000 out of Indonesian hardwoods and is 100 feet long with a 21-foot beam. While not luxurious, she is comfortable, well maintained. There are six double cabins with en suite bathrooms, individually controlled air-conditioning, and electricity 24 hours a day. The boat is very sturdy and stable, whether still or under motor. The boat’s crew of seven is attentive, experienced, and helpful, and many have worked on the boat for years. The captain's small, friendly dog lives on board. Note: There are steep stairs/ladders from the cabins up to the main deck (the dining room is located on the main deck), so it may not be suitable for people with limited mobility. The vessel carries a 16-foot inflatable Avon craft. Safety and navigation equipment include: three HF radios, radar, depth sounder, two GPS, SSB radios, satellite phone, life jackets, and a 25-person emergency life raft.
