Fenides is a phinisi style yacht that was custom built in 2019. This yacht was carefully constructed in Sulawesi to international standards, using local hardwoods of ironwood and teak for her hull and imported fittings.
The owners have a great love of adventure, and as such, Fenides is thoughtfully equipped with a plethora of equipment that makes her ideal for charters geared around diving or surfing. The implementation of superior computing systems adds to the seamless level of comfort and optimal performance.
Her minimalist, contemporary design adds to the sense of space, with three decks offering ample space for guests to unwind. Fenides sails off the beaten track, from secret surf breaks in Halmahera to epic dive spots around Komodo. A highly experienced crew of 11 ensures guests are well looked after.
Fenides features five air-conditioned suites with two double cabins located on the upper deck as well as one master suite and two twin suites on the lower deck, all with en-suite bathrooms. The cabins are decorated in a minimalist style to maximise the feeling of space.
The main deck features an outdoor lounge and dining area for catching the sun and making the most of spectacular island views, as well as an indoor saloon and bar, and a dedicated camera room with six desks, editing facilities, widescreen TVs and sofas. On the upper deck, there is a second bar and plenty of space to relax alfresco.
Fenides also features a dive deck, climate-controlled camera room, and she is equipped with snorkel gear and dive equipment including nitrox, stand up paddleboards, portable docking stations, a Bose sound system, laundry facilities and two tenders.
Fenides is the brainchild of a group of highly experienced seafaring friends with ample experience off the beaten track, so she is the perfect option for guests keen on surfing and diving in remote locations.

We had wonderful time. The ship was perfect - beautifully designed and very comfortable. I have been lucky enough to experience a good number of dive boats and I can honestly say Fenides was the best. The whole crew were really excellent - you never had to ask for anything, they had always thought about it before. Dom ran the ship and the whole cruise with great skill and good humour. Taking the route we wanted in remote North Maluku was new ground for everyone but Dom and the captain handled this very well. I can really recommend Fenides, thank you for all you did to set up our trip.
All brilliant! Fenides really is a stunning boat with everything you could hope for. Dom and his team are absolutely first class. Delicious food, great diving and other excursions, and beautifully organised.
