THE PHINISI VESSELS

Build out of precious tropical wood, Phinisi are embodying the Indonesian long-time maritime tradition. They are a reflection of its soul, and somehow what makes a voyage in Indonesia so unique. Constructed by the best Indonesian carpenters through their ancestral knowledge, they are mostly designed by westerners’ naval architects and engineers. This fertile association brings together traditional design, top-tier amenities, and modern and efficient engineering.

We deliberately decided not to introduce each boats we are working with on our website. Our selected Phinisi vary in size, interior design, and onboard services. When your holiday project will be well defined with us, we are pairing it with a selection of private yacht which would appeal to you. We’ll provide you with a comprehensive brochure of the private yacht, its included policy, and its own condition of payment. 

Travelling in Style

Motorsailor Exquisite Wooden Yacht

Most of the Phinisi are not “pure” sailing yachts. All of them are using marine diesel engine as a propulsion, and the sails as an ancillary. Those wooden vessels are heavy, and not design to appeal to purist sailing enthusiasts.

In the past century, Phinisi were merchant vessels used to carry goods around the archipelago. They were spending months trying to reach their destination, carefully scheduling their voyage with the wind seasons. As you guess, this way of travelling doesn’t suit the requirements of the modern cruising experience.

The main distinctive feature about Phinisi is the beauty of their design and their unique character. Listening to the specific sounds of a sailing wooden vessel for the time of a sunset is an unrivalled feeling. Living aboard those luxury vessels, with a dedicated crew and some top-tier amenities makes the experience by itself.
