There’s no doubt that Indonesia is a nation of unparalleled natural beauty. This diverse archipelago is made up of more than 17,000 islands. Strategically located amidst the crystal-clear waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Indonesia’s enchanting coastlines and secluded coves provide the perfect backdrop for a maritime experience like no other. From the bustling beaches of Bali to the remote islands of Raja Ampat, the country’s maritime charm beckons those seeking adventure.
It is not surprising that Indonesia is not only a haven for tropical landscapes, but also a playground for the world’s most exquisite yachts. In fact, the Indonesian luxury yacht scene is quite distinctive because it is dominated by traditional wooden yachts called the phinisi. These incredible 2-masted wooden schooners are reminiscent of the golden age of sail and bring to mind the seacraft from the spice trade era.
