We introduces international pleasure seekers to the enchanting world of the tropics with custom made charters through the Indonesian Archipelago by yacht.
But… not just any yacht!
The Mutiara Laut is a classic two-mast schooner that recalls romantic oceanic adventures of yore and is carefully constructed to cater to your every sea-faring fantasy. The design of the Mutiara Laut (Pearl of the Sea) is based on that of an 18th century North Atlantic schooner combined with some local Indonesian influence: that of the traditional “Phinisi-boat”.
Both the exterior and the interior represent a harmonious fusion of eclectic Asian and classic European craftsmanship in an effortless symbiosis of modern stylishness and old world charm. The entire effect – beautifully supplemented by the intricate carvings of Balinese artisans – is that of a “floating luxury hotel” complete with all the high-end amenities.
Though the streamlined hull and massive sails make for excellent upwind performance, the Mutiara Laut is built primarily for comfort and safety and allows guests to discover the far-flung nooks and natural splendor of the Asian seas at a smooth, leisurely pace. It was created with enhanced maneuverability and visibility is at an optimum with specially built-in details such as the raised pilot house and accessible bridge ‘wings’.
In short, the Mutiara Laut is one of the most superbly-engineered charter vessels in Indonesian Waters with its highly experienced Captain and professional crew of 13 guaranteed to give you a comfortable and safe adventure.
Escape to the mystical, tropical paradise of Indonesia and dive where most people only dream of, it’s an adventure of a lifetime.
Life on Board
The three decks harbor spacious cabins designed with safety, comfort and privacy as a priority. The roomy VIP cabin on the main deck has a spectacular view and is a real treat for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. There are six staterooms on the lower deck each with en-suite bathroom, study and luxury sofa. All are fully air-conditioned with Internet-connected pc.
The large, 60 sq meters open deck area is custom-made for leisure-time where you can sunbathe or relax with a book on the extra-large day-beds or sit down with friends at the informally placed tables for a bite to eat or a sundowner. The main deck saloon and dining room offers all possible amenities for meetings or formal dining and comes complete with all the necessary media facilities for presentations or entertainment events. The spacious galley contains all the trimmings befitting an excellent restaurant where the two top chefs’ cater to your every whim.
Pilothouse & Captains Cabin:
State of the art navigation equipment ensures the safety of guests and the crew. Accessible ‘wings’ on the bridge make for excellent visibility.
Saloon and Dining room:
The 36sq meter saloon consists of a lounge and “briefing area” and an intimate dining room that seat 14 people at exotic, finely-carved wooden tables. A stately midship stairway with hand-crafted pillars and sweeping, exquisitely sculpted hand rails, leads to the staterooms on the lower deck. The saloon is fully air-conditioned and equipped with a large LCD TV, library and lounge area.

It contains a king-sized berth, elegant desk, big comfortable sofa and fully-stocked bookshelves. Walk-in wardrobes provide more than enough storage for long passages at sea.

One would easily be forgiven for mistaking the guest suites for the VIP stateroom itself. Self contained with its own en-suite head compartment, a comfortable sofa and abundant storage space, it also has ample shelving and hutches with plenty of reading material for long voyages. There are six guest cabins; four doubles and two twin- beds. The four double cabins each contain a settee that converts into an extra single bed while the single beds in the two forward cabins can be converted into double beds. The rooms are carefully designed – all with sofas, dressing tables and en-suite facilities – but each with subtle individual interior variations. All of the state rooms are larger than traditional liveaboard rooms.

All berths in the cabins are positioned in the length of the yacht’s axe for extra comfort. Large portholes fill the units with light and increase visibility at sea. All cabins are fully air-conditioned and come equipped with en- suite bathrooms, ample locker space, double berths with a separate setee that converts into a third berth, as well as a study corner with a desk and internet-connected pc.
The same attention to detail displayed in the schooner’s interior design is applied to making on board meals extra extraordinary – from the setting presentation to the particular choice of dishes demanded by the occasion. Rather than the typical live aboard buffets, you can choose from daily a la carte menus. Our abundant supply of food is freshly flown-in and prepared by our internationally trained chefs who add their own special touch of gourmet magic.
Free flowing ventilation and ample natural light streaming through the modern, fully equipped galley, help the chefs to create a delicious nouveau-fusion of traditional western dishes, Indonesian cuisine and culinary influences from further afield such as Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong.
We also supply a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, quality teas and the finest blends of international coffees.
