Teman was design and built by French autodidacts. One is a sailor and a yacht building enthusiast. He set up in Indonesia 25 years ago, and build his first boat in Tanah Beru. Since then he kept his passion alive, building 8 more vessels for him and others. He is an established but now retired renowned marine architect. His associate on this project, brought his knowledge of machineries and plumbing from New Caledonia. They named it “Teman”, which mean “Friend”. Nowadays retired, the architect sold his share to a belgium passionate diver and entrepreneur. He took over him in 2021.
Built in Tanah Beru by the best Konjo carpenters, he has been launched in June 2017, and starts operated in November of the same year. A dozen of precious wood variety has been used during the construction process. A particular care has been taken for the drying process, and the way the different pieces of wood had been assemble to enhance their natural beauty.
Teman’s design is simple and efficient. Everything has been made for the boat not to be to heavy above the waterline, which guarantee a safe and comfortable navigation. The lounge is huge, and gives the passengers a stunning view from the sofa or bean bags. Choice has been made to have an open space to the ocean, and the kitchen.
The open- kitchen is encouraging interactions with the crew. The chef Nasire is providing some amazing meals, based on his 25 years of experience at sea. Freshly baked bread is suffusing its delicious fragrance every morning, and his delicious cakes around 5 pm

Number 3 and 4 offer a queen size bed, and a comfortable bunk bed (which can be released) above it. Number 5 have a queen size bed at your disposal, and gives a direct access to the rear skirt, but a bit noisier as closer from the engine. Bunk beds can be released for couples. Each cabin has its private ensuite bathroom and warm water. Storage units, electric plugs and air conditioning are obviously at your disposal.
Teman is specially design to welcome scuba divers on board. With two Bauer Compressors, 30 dive tanks, and a Nitrox membrane, Teman is the perfect vessel for a diving expedition. A special area has been arranged for photographers, with a great charging station.
The dive deck is located on the bow, and is pretty well organised. A couple of large rinsing container, and the two deck showers are practical. Watermakers are producing enough freshwater for you to rinse regularly your gears.
Teman’s divers reach the dive sites with two wooden tenders, specially arranged to carry diving tanks. Each of them is fitted with a 40hp outboard engine, and driven by a great captain.
