For lazy days spent relaxing in some of Indonesia’s most tranquil anchorages, guests will adore her 5x15m (16x49ft) net pool, where you can sit, sunbathe and safely jump into the sea at any time to cool off.  You will also find that the far end of the 5m beam pool is long and wide enough for two people to enjoy floating yoga while soaking up the spectacular surrounding views.

Raja Ampat yacht charters

Known as the last paradise on earth, the perfectly picturesque islands of Raja Ampat are a unique and outstandingly beautiful yacht rental destination choice. Until the last few years, the 1,600 largely uninhabited islands that make up this Indonesian archipelago have remained a closely guarded secret. Packed with natural beauty, dense emerald jungles and white sandy beaches, there are ample opportunities for charter guests to explore, relax and rejuvenate in this otherworldly paradise.

Unquestionably one of the most beautiful island chains in the world, many charterers visit Raja Ampat not only for the archipelagos miraculous beauty but to experience the incredible diving opportunities for themselves. The islands' location, most of which are remote from the nearest towns, makes the reef pure and seemingly untouched and the expansive area of pristine blue water contains millions of reefs and fishes, many of which you will never find anywhere else.

Unique cruising itineraries

With all the spectacular wonders above and beyond its waters, as well as on land and amidst the thick jungles, there is no doubt that a Raja Ampat yachting itinerary will encompass something for each and every person in your charter party. 

The four main islands of Raja Ampat, known as ‘the four kings’, are Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati and Misool, each offering something totally different and unique. While these islands’ underwater splendors are beyond exceptional, the landscape above the surface is equally breathtaking with rock islet formations, white sandy beaches and a variety of exotic wildlife found at every turn.
