30m / 3 cabins / 6 guests / 7 crew
Mantra is a classic phinisi-style yacht merging retro lines with modern technology that launched in Indonesia in 2015. Her style harks back to the ancient spice trading days, and she was built traditionally on the island of Sulawesi using ancient boatbuilding techniques.
Whether guests are seeking the thrill of adventure or the simplicity of a tranquil sojourn, Mantra is a good affordable option. Cruising amongst teeming coral reefs, tangled mangroves and towering volcanoes, she offers an escape in the waters surrounding Komodo National Park and Flores.
Mantra is ideal for groups of friends or families travelling with children due to her layout, which includes single beds in each of her three cabins. Her crew of seven includes a knowledgeable Indonesian captain, a cruise director, a dive master and a chef.
Mantra’s three en-suite guest cabins are situated on the lower deck. Each features a queen-size bed and either one or two additional side beds, accommodating six in total comfort and up to four additional guests if using all bunks. Each cabin is air-conditioned and has a relaxing ambiance, surrounded by light teak panels and Indonesian textiles.
An indoor lounge, library and dining area on the main deck offers space for entertaining, while out on deck there’s additional dining space on the aft deck, and a large lounger on the top deck for soaking up the sun.
Mantra is well equipped with snorkelling and dive gear for those seeking to explore the underwater world. Her friendly crew looks after every element of the trip to ensure guests have the most seamless and exciting adventure among the beguiling tropical islands and crystal-clear water of the Indonesian archipelago.
Mantra is one of our most popular yachts for an affordable charter, and she offers good value for money with comfortable accommodation.

“It was fantastic! We all had a wonderful time; Stuart and the team were all excellent. All was organised very well, food was fantastic, couldn’t fault it!”
“Mantra was INCREDIBLE - could not have been better. The diving was (as you know) out of this world. The food was also surprisingly varied and good. Bedrooms comfy too. The crew and the dive staff were brilliant - the dive guide was inspired – the kids had a fantastic time with the kayaks and paddleboards and spent most of the diving surface intervals leaping off the front of the boat… So all in all, amazing! We will definitely want to come back.”
“Overall the group had an amazing trip, it was quite special for them as they all came from so many different parts of the globe. Some family members had not seen each other in years. They loved all the destinations and the diving.”
