VIDEO: Superyacht 'La Familia' Cruising Around The Komodo Island

By Oliver Pearson   5 April 2016

Clearly in fine form ahead of her Singapore Yacht Show commitments next month, the outstanding 55m/180ft luxury yacht ‘La Familia’ looked every inch the masterpiece as she was filmed cruising around the Komodo Island in Indonesia.

Showcasing her generously sized helipad and considerable underway performance, the footage of La Familia, shot sometime earlier this year, is very much a ringing endorsement of the fun to be had in the more remote destinations of South East Asia.

Indeed, with profile shots of the motor yacht interspersed with images of the iconic ‘dragons’ which take their name from the island, it’s easy to see why the island has become such an ideal cruising ground for summertime luxury charter vacations.

Whilst La Familia is not believed to be available for charter, Amels shipyard- her builder- recently released an innovatively staged video showing their work on similarly sized projects which may be available for charter upon their delivery.

Resplendent with exceptional beaches and turquoise waters, it’s not difficult to see why Indonesia is steadily becoming a favoured destination for summertime luxury charter vacations

Though the dragons are assuredly the first thing which comes to mind when talking of the Komodo Island, its geography and location offers so much more to the modern charterer.

With only a small population and an abundance of natural beauty, visitors are afforded a great deal of privacy and the chance to visit one of only seven beaches in the world fringed by pink sand.

What’s more, scuba diving in Indonesia is every bit as exciting as it is in the more talked about spots. Indeed, with plenty of healthy reefs to be explored and a wealth of rare fish passing through the water during summer, there’s always something to do once guests have taken in the sun from the comfort of the many sequestered beaches.

In order to make enquiries regarding a charter which visits the Komodo Island, please speak with your preferred charter broker.
