Traditional Sailing Yacht DUNIA BARU to host opening cocktail party at Asia Superyacht Rendezvous 2016

November 29, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Exclusive Interview with Mr Mark Robba, Owner of Sailing Yacht DUNIA BARU

Asia Superyacht Rendezvous, the most important superyacht regatta and event in South East Asia is to start in less than a month, bringing together a fleet of beautiful sailing and motor yachts for three days of relaxed socialising, fun activities and most importantly friendly sailing races in the beautiful Andaman Sea. Taking place from 16th to 18th December in Phuket, Thailand, ASR’s opening ceremony will be hosted by the traditional Phinisi-style sailing yacht DUNIA BARU, which is available for unforgettable charter vacations in South East Asia. Leading up to the opening cocktail party, we have spoken to Dunia Baru’s owner, Mr Mark Robba to find out more about the ASR as well as their decision to participate in the event.

Dunia Baru – Photos by Dennis Anderson

DUNIA BARU is a beautiful traditional phinisi-style superyacht and second to none when it comes to South East Asia charter vacations. What made you decide to join Asia Superyacht Rendezvous this year?

We have wanted to join the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous for a number of years but our schedules have never before matched. However, last year we had such positive feedback from our clients in regards to chartering in the Mergui Archipelago, we decided to come to Thailand earlier this year, lending us the opportunity to also join this prestigious event.

What are your expectations when it comes to ASR?

Our first expectation at the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous is to have a really good time. We also hope to let others experience what makes Dunia Baru so special – the quality of the build, the level of detail and the maintenance that goes into Dunia Baru – keeping her in truly Bristol condition and maintaining her reputation as an exceptional yacht.

In addition to your participation in the event, DUNIA BARU will also host the opening cocktail party. I am sure the crew is already organising and planning for the event. Are there any highlights expected for this event?

In preparation for Asia SYR the crew has been busy ensuring the boat is in as-new condition. Our customers frequently comment they have never seen a boat as clean as Dunia Baru – our crew prides themselves in having the best-maintained yacht in SE Asia!

We have also upgraded the sound system on Dunia Baru for the opening night party – we want to emphasize Dunia Baru is the boat to be on when you really want to have a good time! Whether that be world-class diving under the watchful eye of our European Padi Dive instructor, eating the finest food prepared by our talented western chef – Tom Brett, use one of of wide selection of water toys – or turning the boat into a floating nightclub for party nights onboard.

Tom has also been working with Udin, our Indonesian chef, to create a mouth-watering selection of western and Asian appetizers.

Mouthwatering dishes aboard DUNIA BARU

Mouthwatering dishes aboard DUNIA BARU

When it comes to the charter market in South East Asia how do you see the future in terms of growth and popularity? Do you see an increase in requests and interest in more exotic, adventure-styled charters in the recent years?

It appears that people are getting tired of the crowded harbors of the Med and are seeking out remote areas where a wonderful anchorage can be enjoyed with no one else in sight. Last year we cruised in the Mergui Archipelago and saw one other yacht in the course of a seven day trip, while on a recent trip in Indonesia we didn’t see a single other yacht over the course of the ten day trip!

While it does take a bit more effort to get to SE Asia – people are finding out the extra effort is well worth it. Spending a day on a remote secluded beach, for example, with fine white sand and crystal clean water is always a special experience.

We are finding more and more requests to go places where there are no other boats – people want authentic adventure experiences.

DUNIA BARU - anchored at night

What are the main cruising grounds DUNIA BARU is available at and what would be the ‘highlight destination’ on your itinerary?

Our cruising grounds include Raja Ampat, the Forgotten Islands, the Spice Islands and the Kai Islands of Eastern Indonesia – The Komodo National Park to Bali. Outside of Indonesia we venture as far north as the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar, the Western Coast of Thailand and the Andaman Islands of India.

What can the guests expect from a vacation onboard Dunia Baru? What sets her apart from other vessels in this area?

Charter guests on Dunia Baru can expect to have a great time. The vessel was built as family yacht and not for charter business. The quality of build and attention to detail shows this, and sets Dunia Baru in a class all her own!

Exotic Thailand and Myanmar Adventure Yacht Charter aboard 65m Traditional Phinisi LAMIMA

April 20, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Increasingly sought after by discerning travellers, South East Asia offers a variety of amazing exotic destinations and secluded areas, with a breath-taking natural beauty and unique local culture. Staying in luxury resorts or deluxe hotels can be limiting when it comes to such a large area where chartering a superyacht becomes the best option by far. If you decide to charter a luxury yacht, you will be looked after by your own personal crew, attending to your needs 24 hours a day, indulge in the comfort and luxury of the various amenities aboard as well as take advantage of the flexibility of the boat, able to sail to even the most secluded areas, otherwise unreachable.

Traditional Phinisi SuperYacht Lamima

Traditional Phinisi SuperYacht Lamima

Thailand and Myanmar are one of the locations in this part of the world that are well-worth visiting, offering amazing island cruising, spectacular beaches, great food and plenty of new cultural experiences. There are only a handful of large luxurious superyachts available in this area with the 65m Traditional Phinisi LAMIMA being one of the best! Our experienced senior charter broker, Nicolas Benazeth embarked on a discovery familiarisation trip to find out what it is like to spend your holiday aboard this very special vessel:

The Voyage and the Area

Phuket represents an ideal place to start and end your adventurous journey to Mergui. It has a number of nice places for pre and post trip visits, or to spend a day or two there. Ask your broker for interesting suggestions on activities to avoid the unnecessary crowds, or to visit the best restaurants or resorts here. For example, the Kata Rocks luxury resort has a nice spa, where you could relax.

Yacht Lamima - Beach night

Yacht Lamima – Beach night

One of the main destinations included in the itinerary included Mergui Archipelago, which is located in the far southern Myanmar. It is composed of over 800 islands varying in size all spread around the Andaman Sea off the western shore of the Malay Peninsula.

“Mergui was a pretty spectacular cruising location, and the sheer number of islands and islets makes for endless options. There are some truly superb beaches and some islands with inland waterways and mangrove forests are just stunning. Some islands even have elephants still living on them!” recounts Nick.

Lamima - Snorkelling

Lamima – Snorkelling

Mergui represents the picture perfect island/beach remote feel, located far from the crowds of Thailand. While there are no luxury resorts or restaurants, which guests don’t really need as they are provided with the best service and amenities on board,  it is still a beautiful place to cruise around, being more untouched than Thailand. Sailing at night you will see lights of Thai fishing boats on the horizon, and you might even encounter a few friendly Sea Gypsy boats.

The Yacht

LAMIMA is the largest wooden sailing yacht available for charter, and there is no doubt she is solidly built in the traditional Indonesian way with local hardwoods. She is incredibly steady and more quiet, stable and comfortable underway, even in rough seas, than pretty much any other yacht our broker has been on, including the largest stabilized motor yachts.

The fact she has a huge volume also means great living spaces inside and on deck. The interiors were finished in Bangkok, and the quality of finish and attention to detail is excellent and cannot be faulted.

All seven cabins are very large and comfortable and she accommodates up to 14 guests easily. Accommodation includes one master suite, four double staterooms and two twin staterooms. All cabins come with private en-suite bathroom facilities, luxurious amenities, furnishings and great attention to detail.

LAMIMA offers a good selection of water toys and equipment, with an all new top of the range dive shop! The yacht is one of the only worldwide superyachts to have her own 5-star PADI dive centre, including two excellent dive instructors who can certify anyone on the spot. There are 2 large tenders, with the biggest being excellent for day trips, diving and transfers.

One of the highlights of cruising aboard LAMIMA and a fantastic spectacle for guests is when the crew put up the sails manually. The entire activity takes about 20 minutes, and then when the wind allows, the yacht sails beautifully on the water. The crew takes great pride in manually sailing the vessel, which provides everyone on board with a truly unique experience.

The crew make this yacht very special, there are 19 of them, which is a great ratio to guests, and they work well as a team. They are all the right balance of friendly and professional, and nothing is ever too much. Two Balinese masseuses/therapists are available on board for that extra time to unwind and enjoy a truly relaxing massage in the comfort and privacy of your own boat.

Her talented Chef offers a perfect balance of very traditional and fresh local and Asian food, while also able to easily execute international dishes if necessary. “He came out every day at breakfast to discuss his suggestions for the day, and ask if anyone wanted different meals, which was great. He also bought a lot of fresh fish and sea food from fishermen wherever possible,” says Nick.

Overall our charter broker was very impressed by the experience, the yacht and the exceptional service on board. LAMIMA is a wonderful superyacht when it comes to cruising in South East Asia and offers various itinerary possibilities, which can be discussed with our brokers and the the Captain of the yacht. She is available for US$140,000.00 per week plus expenses. For additional information, questions or a brochure, don’t hesitate to contact us today.

RAJA AMPAT BOAT RENTAL – SORONG TO SORONG

Raja Ampat is a spectacular archipelago, located northwest off New Guinea in Indonesia’s West Papua province and consists of more than 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals and is a perfect destination for unforgettable and unique Indonesia yacht charter vacations in South-East Asia. The archipelago was named after the four major islands: Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo.

Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat

Sorong is a coastal city in the eastern Indonesian province of West Papua and is known as the gateway to the Raja Ampat Islands. The islands are rich with coral reefs and are at the heart of the world’s coral reef biodiversity. Charter guests on an Indonesia luxury rental boat will find the surrounding area and the islands incredibly beautiful. It is said that the area casts a spell on all who visit!

In the Misool Archipelago, ZEN will take you on a journey through the ethereal “Gua Sacral” ancestral caves of Tumulol, a former burial site of the indigenous Papuans. Another spectacular destination to visit is located at the Southeast end of Misool and is one of the very few places on Earth that can be truly called ‘Paradise Islands’. This enchanting chain of islands carves the entire area into hundreds of narrow channels and inlets, which hide tiny lagoons, coves, high cliffs and limestone overhangs, caves, jagged rocks as well as endless pristine beaches. This area is also perfect for diving with the underwater world teeming with life.

Uninhabited islets and turquoise waters of Fam Archipelago are excellent for kayaking or simply strolling the perfect white sandy beaches. Some of the great diving spots in this area include Melissa’s Garden in the Lagoon Penemu or Tembok Wofoh.

Wayag Archipelago consists of numerous tiny islets that over years have eroded by the relentless motion of the tides and now resemble an armada of flying saucers. Here you can enjoy a cruise on one of Zen’s tenders, kayaks or jet skis and pay visit to the beautiful Wayag Lagoon with a magical maze of limestone karst ‘gumdrop’ islands adorned with pitcher plants and wild orchids. If you love hiking, you could climb the Wayag Peak and enjoy the spectacular views.

Another fabulous place to dive is the Dampier Strait. Here you can spend some time diving down to the shallow sandy bottom and wait for the giant mantas to pass overhead, or swim with these gentle giants at the surface.

There are unlimited possibilities and places to discover on a Raja Ampat yacht rental aboard ZEN. Take advantage of this offer and experience this incredible journey and a holiday of a lifetime.  This special price includes: the exclusive use of the boat and the crew, insurance, all meals as specified in the itinerary, beach dinners, beach parties, transfer from and to the hotel/airport, some water sports: kayaks, snorkelling, fishing, on-board Wi-Fi and entertainment system and harbour fees.

Superyacht LAMIMA is an Indonesian sailing ketch constructed on the beach in Bira, in the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. She was then towed to Italthai Marine in Bangkok for outfitting.

The team is being led by Ben Wood who explains “Marine Results is handling the management of virtually every aspect from the deck up.  We have been responsible for all the mast hardware design and we contracted Fairlie Yachts for their invaluable input into the traditional design. We are now managing the onsite spar and mast hardware assembly and ultimately the rigging and stepping.”  He adds “We have supplied 4.4 kilometres of rope and approximately one tonne of blocks, shackles and running rigging hardware.”

Three Marine Results specialists are on site with the local workforce, as well as other European companies who have been drafted into the project. The wooden masts were built in Spain of fast growing sustainable hemlock.

Suffolk Composite Structures are working with Marine Results on component designs including chainplates.

“We will be stepping the rig ashore in early October,” says Ben “which is unusual, as we normally step with the vessel in the water. This whole project has involved using an extremely diverse range of specialist skills to produce and rig these traditional-style wooden spars.”
