In Anticipation of Vela
A custom built phinisi yacht due to set sail in Indonesian waters in 2022, Vela is owned by the eco-minded team behind Nirjhara: a sustainable hideaway hotel designed around a waterfall in Bali. This beautiful six-cabin yacht blends century-old tradition and modern naval design.
Vela was conceived by an American engineer and built in South Sulawesi by the renowned Konjo boatbuilders. Her sleek hull was designed for optimal performance and safety, using locally sourced ironwood and teak.
Vela is an exciting new addition to the Indonesian yachting scene. Her boutique hotel ownership ensures fine attention to detail and the feel of a discreet floating villa at sea.
