Ultimate Indonesian Yachts



50m  /  6 cabins  /  12 guests  / 18 crew

Vela is a brand new custom built phinisi yacht that launched in August 2022. This beautiful six-cabin yacht is owned by the eco-minded team behind Nirjhara: a sustainable hideaway hotel designed around a waterfall in Bali.

Blending century-old tradition and modern naval design, Vela was conceived by an American engineer and built in South Sulawesi by the renowned Konjo boatbuilders. Her sleek hull was designed for optimal performance and safety, using locally sourced ironwood and teak.

Combining the best of adventure, refinement and safety, Vela seeks to redefine barefoot luxury by sailing off the beaten path and crafting lasting bespoke memories. From scuba diving with manta rays and hiking among Komodo dragons to sheer relaxation on a pristine beach, no two experiences are ever the same.


Onboard Experience

Distinctive and elegant, Vela’s interior offers a comfortable setting with a generous dose of traditional Indonesian craftsmanship.

Each of Vela’s six suites is tastefully appointed with Italian fabrics and furnished with locally produced custom teak furniture sourced from sustainable forestry. Every en-suite bathroom is equipped with Philippe Starck-designed fittings and features handmade terracotta produced in Ubud, offset with smooth marble.

The interiors, created by a Parisian interior designer, are bright and airy, with a generous dash of colour. Chic accents include ceramics from Gaya in Ubud, fabrics hand-dyed with plant-based indigo dye from East Bali and Italian fabrics from Hermès and Dedar Milano. You can sip a cocktail in the spacious lounge complete with a bar and wine cellar surrounded by unobstructed views and dine in one of the dedicated indoor and outdoor dining areas.

A host of added wellbeing boosters await: sun salutations take on new magic with sunrise yoga and meditation classes, an outdoor gym can be set up on deck daily, while an expert therapist will be on hand to offer massages and other beauty rituals, including signature treatments from The Retreat (Nirjhara’s spa).

Wherever you choose to sail, make the most of crystalline waters with diving, snorkelling, water-skiing and stand-up paddle boarding, or head ashore for island hiking, birdwatching, secret-beach barbecues and more.


What We Love

Vela is an exciting new addition to the Indonesian yachting scene. Her boutique hotel ownership ensures fine attention to detail and the feel of a discreet floating villa at sea.
