ABOUT CHARTER YACHT ZEN
Charter Yacht ZEN was launched in 2013 and represents a gorgeous Phinisi Schooner. Measuring 53 metres, she offers fantastic spaces on the inside as well as out, for entertainment as well as relaxation. ZEN was constructed in collaboration between theGlobal Adventure Group Ltd. and Zygmunt Choren, renowned designer and builder of many of the world’s best known tall ships. Her interior was created by Digital Effect Design Studio in Poland.
The yacht’s interior boasts the finest interior fittings while keeping in line with her traditional appearance, creating a sentimental return to the classical Asian sailing vessel. Thanks to her wide beam and broad lines, the vessel offers space for her standing rig of two domineering fibre-carbon masts, topsails and four jibs. Her running rig supports fabric carrying 650 square metres of sail, all flying over the dark-wood interior and golden teak decks. Even though the exterior of the yacht presents a untouched classic sailing yacht, her interior is an example of utmost in luxury and design.
Accommodation aboard ZEN yacht has been arranged in 7 deluxe staterooms for up to 16 charter guests. The generous owner’s cabin represents a two-level suite with adjoining children’s room and there are a further 5 guest staterooms with queen beds. There is also space for ZEN’s professional and experienced crew, sleeping in one captain’s cabin and two crew cabins.
The rooms are adorned with beautiful sculptures, ornaments and low relief carvings originating from the cultures of Asia, Polynesia and Maori Islands. Bright furniture provides a lovely contrast to the dark, wooden interiors, creating a very special atmosphere. The ZEN phinisi schooner is a fine example of a rare artistic craft. This hand-made yacht is a model masterwork and a product of the centuries of experience.
There is a spacious saloon and a dining area with a bar as well as additional deck space for guests’ pleasure or an unparalleled al fresco dining experience. The vessel is also equipped with a great range of water toys and equipment, including two Zodiac tenders, two Yamaha WaveRunners jet skis, snorkelling gear, water skis and wake boards.
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.
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.
