Privately charter a luxury yacht for a bespoke sailing adventure around the mystical islands of Indonesia.
We work with a number of beautiful boats that vary in size and style – get in touch to discuss which would best suit your party. Every journey is flexible and all-inclusive; we tailor the itinerary to clients’ interests and ages, or any particular areas that they are keen to explore, whether that’s cruising the Komodo National Park, exploring Raja Ampat, or sailing anywhere between Bali and the Banda Islands.
The remote islands of Indonesia are heaven for barefoot exploration, where you’re surrounded by unbridled nature.
Drop anchor off a pristine bay, comb the beaches for perfect shells, swim in warm, crystal clear waters alongside schools of fish and manta rays, explore the colourful underwater world and coral reefs with a diving instructor and enjoy leisurely barbecues and sunbathing on empty beaches.
You will be privately guided on island excursions to discover their history, culture and nature.
Hike to spectacular viewpoints, and wander through villages, meeting locals and sampling traditional local cuisine.
Rascal is a favourite yacht of ours, a 5-cabin boat that sleeps 10 guests comfortably, with plenty of space as you explore the Indonesian archipelago. Rascal is a true beauty, smart and luxurious with modern amenities and contemporary furnishings, handcrafted from teak and ironwood – she makes a perfect floating home for an island-hopping adventure.
Two above-water decks and large windows throughout the boat provide beautiful views of the everchanging scenery, and the cabins have plenty of light and air streaming through. Each cabins is ensuite with A/C, a flat-screen TV and ample storage space for longer voyages, and great attention has been paid to every small detail, with no expense spared on the towels, linens and mattresses. Our luxury yachts come with an expert crew to provide a high level of service. The hospitality on Rascal supersedes almost any other yacht in the region - the cuisine, cocktail list and overall service is on par with an AMAN, indeed, three key crew members came over from Amandira.
Throughout the day, guests are spoilt with indulgent treats, from curated menus of fresh Asian cuisine by the private chef, to sundowner cocktails made from Rascal’s very own rum. There is a shaded al fresco dining area, and the vast roof deck (1280sqft) is the perfect spot for watching the sun go down.
Rascal comes with two RIBs to take guests out on adventures, and the region’s warm waters are perfect for enjoying a variety of watersports, such as water-skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, snorkelling and fishing. The boats are kitted out with plenty of equipment for these activities, and a flexible itinerary means that you can give something a go at whatever moment you feel like it.
For a honeymoon with guaranteed intimacy and privacy, I would recommend the most stunning one-cabin Phinisi yacht, Alexa, which is a beautiful, romantic sailing boat – typical of Indonesia - and the ideal luxury home on the water for exploring a breathtaking archipelago of pristine paradise islands.
A crew of seven to take care of your every need, offering a discreet, attentive service, and this includes an on-board diving instructor.
Alexa is wonderfully spacious for two guests, and is beautifully designed with teak, stainless steel and tinted glass, which give her an elegant, modern style, adorned with beautiful silk rugs and sculptures collected from the surrounding islands.
The cabin features a King bed fitted with the finest linens, wraparound windows providing panoramic views, an ensuite bathroom, A/C, private balcony and double wardrobe that include plenty of storage space.
Along with privately guided adventures around the islands, guests can enjoy relaxing massages on the deck, or romantic beach picnics of Champagne and fresh lobster under the stars, with antique rugs, white cushions and candlelight to enhance the already magical atmosphere.
Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
