Embodied in a pristine 75 feet wooden yacht featuring graceful lines reminiscent of a traditional Phinisi schooner. This classic style harks back to these great vessels of the Bugis tribe that once ruled the waves during the historic spice trade.

Combining classical appeal with 21st Century technology, Mantra was masterfully crafted on a Sulawesi beach and features a low superstructure with a large deck from bow to stern, resulting in a ship that offers not only a majestic retro form, but also safety for serving private magical journeys.

This beautiful yacht can go up to 1000 nautical miles (approximately 1150 miles). The crew of the yacht is also environmentally conscious; when the air conditioning is not online, they will switch off the generators and run everything on electrical systems via a battery bank and inverter in order to reduce emissions and operational noise.

Mantra also features seawater desalinization system that provides clean freshwater on board, producing 120 liters per hour, complementing the 3000 liters stored in the ship’s tanks. Yanmar engine is known for it’s low fuel consumption and produces low level of emissions, making Mantra the most environmentally friendly yacht around.

The yacht features three cabins, each with private bathroom and AC. The teak wood interior is toned with traditional Indonesian patterns giving the feeling of warmness and comfort. Each cabin consists of Queen size bed and one or two bunk single beds on the sides. The Cabins are cleaned daily, with towel and sheets changed on your request, with a desired frequency.

You can lie down on bed while admiring the magnificent views over the gentle waves across the brass portholes.

Cruise in comfort and enjoy spacious interiors on board with Mantra, which accommodates six and up to ten passengers. It’s perfect for 3 couples with kids, or close circle of friends who can share the comfortable cabins.

Beside comfortable and spacious cabins, you can spend the time in the indoor lounge that can be a perfect space for the entertainment during the night. You can also choose if you will dine outside or inside, since there are dining tables both in the lounge area and on the deck.

Available at all times is our Library that focuses on diving and sailing, as the snorkelling and fishing gears that you can use any time you want. The yacht gives so many opportunities, all designed for maximum comfort and pleasure.

The Liveaboard on Mantra is excellent for families,  or group of friends sharing the holiday of lifetime. The sailing is fun and amazes the kids, but even more important, they learn a lot while they’re on board.
Sometimes we’ll sail during the night, and in the morning, when you wake up, we can be in completely new place, seeing other scenery, and ready for new adventures. It’s like living a wonder every day of your holiday.

The Private Charters are the best option for the ones that want to sail in their own pace, style, and visit the places they wish. Except that, you get to cruise around with the closest ones, and share the vacation that will stay engraved in the memory, probably forever.

It’s not only about the beauty and luxury of the boat Mantra, it’s about sailing and liveaboard that brings you closer to nature, principles of currents, winds, all the natural elements. Once you get to depend on them, you start appreciating them more, and therefore you see everything in different light.

You’ll discover the richness and magic of Nature, and not only underwater, exploring the marine life, but also exploring the islands and mainland.

RAJA AMPAT

Where the oceans meet, the flora and fauna mixing from two different continents. The Indonesian Archipelago is majestically shaped in this area. There is no better way to travel around Raja Ampat than liveaboard. No matter of your preferences, you will simply be stunned by the breathtaking scenery.

Raja Ampat is one of the biggest biodiversity marine life sites, so the snorkeling or diving will give you endless pleasures. It’s the same with flora and fauna, if you feel like exploring mainland, while the boat is anchored.
While cruising you will wonder in some moments if it’s all real, and this is what will make your vacation and liveaboard experience so special.

Make sure that you take the good cameras, underwater and regular ones. Some of the sites we’ll visit are rarely visited, or unpopulated.

KOMODO ISLAND

While sailing the route called Komodo Island, we’ll visit many islands and beaches around actual Komodo Island. The area is full of smaller and bigger islands, with reach flora and fauna. Some of the most amazing beaches can be found around Komodo Island. One of them being the Pantai Merah, or Pink Beach as everybody calls it. The Pink beach is not only amazing to see, as a natural wonder, but the waters around are incredible snorkeling spot.

On the Komodo Island itself, and Rinca Island- little sister of Komodo, you can track for few hours in order to see the Komodo Dragons, the biggest lizards on Earth. They can be spotted also in Horseshoe Bay. Monkeys, pigs, deers and herons visit the beaches here. The bird life is particularly reach, and it’s a quite a sight to spot eagles catching the fishes from the ocean.

The snorkeling equipment is on disposal at all the times. You will be able to see the wonders of the oceans meeting and mixing the species. It is also possible to see the bigger animals like Manta Rays, dolphins, even the whales happen to swim around the boat sometimes.

Liveaboard gives you a great combination of sailing, snorkeling or diving, and visiting the mainland in order to see some of the exclusiveness of Indonesian Archipelago. The Komodo dragons can be found only on Komodo islands and nowhere else on the world. Quite amazing, isn’t it?

NORTH MALUKU

Centrally in the Coral Triangle, North Maluku is destination special in many ways.
The diving and snorkeling will be unique experience, because of the black sand beaches and black corals, and volcanic origin islands. Sometimes they will look just like they’re coming straight up from the water.

Historically, the North Maluku was important crossroads, and battlefield for many colonizers in search of spices. Being valuable as gold, the little islands attracted many, and made them fight over these little pieces of land. Still on the islands you can find the fortresses built at that time.

Imagine the time when the Indonesian Archipelago started to be exploited, when the ships were sailing only on the power of wind. Maybe we’ll pass the same routes, maybe see the same sights like people back in time.

The nature is preserved, some of the islands uninhabited, and all of that makes it only more authentic and unique.

BANDA SEA

Cruising on the open sea, passing by scattered islands, some of them being active volcanoes. Sounds like adventure. And it is. It is fullest liveaboard adventure you can choose for yourself.

This part of Indonesian Arhipelago will show itself in all its remoteness and untouched beauty. The population is the lowest in this area, which makes the nature, flora and fauna, especially marine life almost untouched.

Banda sea is challenge and beauty itself. It is not discovered yet by the tourist, and by massive number of divers. Use the chance to sail through these waters while it’s still unexplored, and nature untouched.
