SI DATU BUA
Built by the legendary Konjo Boat Builders of Sulawesi, the 40-metre Si Datu Bua (meaning “Beloved Princess”) was handcrafted from carefully selected materials that call to mind the classic phinisi heritage. She is the smaller sister of the beautiful and well-established Silolona and is just as luxurious, evoking the spirit of Indonesia’s magnificent islands.
Reflecting the phinisi ships that historically traded along the spice routes in the region, Si Datu Bua embodies the essence of Indonesia’s past together with the contemporary luxuries expected of a modern day superyacht.
Si Datu Bua travels between the spiritual hub of Bali, Lombok’s quiet shores, the dense jungles of Sulawesi, Raja Ampat’s remote reefs and the UNESCO World Heritage Komodo National Park to name a few.
Si Datu Bua is a wonderful choice for families or groups of friends looking to sail in authentic style, and her crew of 11 includes an expedition leader, chef and dive instructor. Her team is known for an in depth knowledge of the culture and customs of Indonesia.
