"I am always impressed with Ultimate Indonesian Yachts' efficiency."
Extremely flexible with my rather tricky clients! They seem to have the patience of saints... Eddie will "tell it how it is" and I appreciate that honesty. It's good to work with a small team who are happy to go above and beyond.

"I have been working with Eddie and Annie for a number of years now."
You can be sure that you are in very professional and expert hands. We worked with the MYBA contract, adapting things to suit local regulations, always with the client/owner interests as a priority. Ultimate Yachts is my go-to for anything in Indonesia.
- ALINE, BURGESS YACHTS
"Eddie has a wealth of knowledge on diving and logistics in Indonesia."
His team knows a great deal and we often seek Eddie's opinion on yachts, dive crews, sites and especially remote and obscure areas that few know about. I have never had hesitations about Eddie's recommendations.
