If you’re looking to leave behind a significant positive impact on your charter grounds this summer, consider Indonesian luxury yacht DUNIA BARU and support the building of a learning centre for all ages.
Indonesia has long held the reputation of having some of the world’s best dive sites, particularly around Raja Ampat where the muck diving reveals a world rich in biodiversity where bright yellow sea horses and sky blue nudibranchs feed in the nutrient-rich waters. Coral reefs are also prevalent throughout the region, and colourful mandarin fish, clown fish and dramatic lion fish can all be spotted swimming through the wonderfully clear seas.
51m/167.4ft S/Y DUNIA BARU was voted the best charter operation in Indonesia for two years running and comes equipped with 14 sets of Scuba diving gear in the dive shop and New Zealand/British Dive Master Clive, who is also indispensable as your cruise director. A BBQ and beach chairs ensure that you are fully prepared to unwind on board or along one of the myriad powdery white beaches within the archipelago.
Also of note is the great selection of water toys, which includes:
- 3 x Sea Kayaks
- 2 x Jet Skis
- 2 x Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUPs)
- 1 x Banana boat
- 1 x 12′ Sunfish
- Water skis, and
- Fishing gear and tackle
The accommodation is designed for up to 14 guests over seven spacious en-suite cabins, with an attentive crew of 20to ensure that all guest have an exceptional cruising experience.
The school at Sauwandarek village is now six weeks into construction and Harris Kuncara, one of the project’s architects who spent the first week working hands-on at the site, commented of learning centre’s importance:
“This project is special to me because of the impact it will make here in Raja Ampat. It is greatly rewarding to create a centre that will give back making a difference in education and conservation in the region.”
“It is a unique project because it fuses modern design standards with traditional Papuan styles of building,” he added. “We have stayed true to the region by using locally sourced materials from the nearby village of Batanta.”
Sailing yacht DUNIA BARU has received glowing feedback from many returning charter groups:
“Just to follow up – it was a fantastic trip. The boat managers were really great, boat was beautiful in great condition, diving was amazing, service on the boat impeccable. We would highly recommend Dunia Baru to anyone who is interested.”

“The crew were very good, calm, caring and smiling yet very discrete. Super good! Our dive guide was very knowledgeable of the area, watching carefully at our safety according to our diving experience and a very nice guy! I am thinking of booking again in Raja Ampat.”
