Kudanil Explorer’s owners took the opportunity to convert an ocean-going vessel into a luxury expedition yacht.

Combining the luxury of an expedition yacht with the built-in safety of a true offshore vessel, Kudanil Explorer’s design make her one of the sturdiest seafaring vessels in the region and allow her to venture to areas of the archipelago that other boats cannot reach.

Kudanil Explorer is an excellent choice for large groups seeking a remote adventure, with 21 crew on board to look after guests’ needs as they voyage through the most remote areas of Indonesia in the comfort of first-class boutique accommodation.

Whilst Kudanil Explorer is the perfect choice for large groups seeking remote expeditions, she is also ideal for families or friends seeking space, comfort and sturdiness on a leisurely charter around the beautiful islands of Komodo and Raja Ampat.

Onboard Experience

Kudanil Explorer features eight spacious air-conditioned en-suite berths spanning 30.5sqm each, situated on the upper deck, all identical in size and layout. 

Each one has the option of a king-size or twin configuration to accommodate 16 guests onboard, with additional single beds available for children on request.

Cabins are fitted with adjustable air-conditioning, wifi access and TVs set up to connect your own device and watch your favourite movies and TV series. Every cabin also has its own generous, private balcony, with a coffee table, chairs and a daybed for secluded alfresco relaxation.
