Sequoia is a 26m yacht that launched in summer 2017. She represents a modern take on a classic wooden yacht, using Indonesian Bugis construction, ironwood and teak. Named after the giant Sequoia tree – the largest and the oldest living organism on earth – Sequoia is built with heritage in mind.
Sequoia features two ensuite cabins, making her ideal for small families seeking an authentic Indonesian experience in Asian waters, and she spends the season plying the seas surrounding Komodo National Park, the Lesser Sunda Islands, West Papua and Raja Ampat. A series of high-density LED lights fixed underneath the yacht illuminate the depths, attracting all manner of reef and ocean dwellers.
Sequoia’s Indonesian owner has tailored each sailing itinerary following many years spent travelling her homeland. The crew includes a cruise director, a dive instructor, two classically trained chefs and a butler.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES
Traditional style is key to Sequoia’s design, and her two Indonesian-designed cabins compromise a master suite and a guest suite. Both cabins are located on the main deck, the master cabin mid-ship and the guest suite accessible through the galley. Windows at eye level allow natural light into the space, while flowing curtains promote privacy. The master cabin features a king-size bed swathed in Belgian linens and the guest suite has a king-size bed conveniently convertible into twin beds if necessary. Varnished teak, jute rugs and ikat textiles keep the essence of Indonesia in sight.
Also located on the main deck is a large open-air lounge and bar that can be closed off from the elements with 20 handmade louvered doors. Those wishing to catch a breeze can relax on the stylish bow deck in front of the wheelhouse. Upstairs, the sky deck is ideal for dining alfresco with 360-degree panoramic views, or reclining on sun loungers and curved love seats.
Sequoia is equipped with a modern galley, a sophisticated American engine and a Boston Whaler tender for shore excursions (along with a Tracker V16 aluminum tender), diving and snorkelling equipment, a cinema set up, fishing equipment, kayaks, stand up paddleboards, waterskiis, tubing and children’s toys. Additionally, guests can enjoy cooking classes with the dedicated chefs and beach picnics in secluded bays.
