Samambaia is a newly built phinisi-style yacht that launched in 2016. This contemporary yacht is focused on adventure holidays and is fitted with all the features of a modern diving boat.
Only the finest tropical hard woods were used to craft this yacht, built by traditional shipwrights with an eye for detail and an artistic finish. Combining functionality with aesthetic detail and quality materials, Samambaia offers a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of space for large groups of up to 14 guests.
Samambaia sails throughout the Indonesian archipelago, from Komodo National Park to the remote and fascinating Alor archipelago in the summer months, to the original Spice Islands in the Banda Sea and the tropical waters of Raja Ampat during the winter season.
A highly experienced crew of 18 includes a cruise director, private chef and dive masters, as well as a spa therapist on request.
