Dewi Nusantara

Seafari Explorer ext opt

The large, extremely luxurious Dewi Nusantara is a three masted, wooden motor schooner, measuring an astounding 57-meters (188-feet) in length.  She's as spectacular as a liveaboard gets.

 A word from Dom :  "When you step onto this stunning vessel you immediately feel at home. Luxurious? Yes. Pretentious? No. Not in the least. She's graceful & elegant ... and on the practical side, has abundant space & is a stable platform for your explorations of the remote regions of Indonesia.  Beyond that, her crew, her food and her ambiance all get rave reviews from her guests. And, the diving .... well, it doesn't get any better.   She's one of our all-time favorites for chartering in Indonesia." ..... Dominick Macan

FLOATING BOUTIQUE RESORT


Dewi Nusantara's style is that of a "floating boutique resort" and features the high end amenities guests expect of the new chic liveaboards.  Her owner's dream was to recreate a majestic 3 masted schooner from the period of the mid 1800′s - a dream that became an enchanting reality.

The upper deck has more than ample room for sunbathing while on the main deck, you find a covered lounging/dining where you can hang out if the sun's rays are too strong.  Inside on this deck, you'll find spacious common areas include a formal dining room and a lounge with all the requisite equipment.  At the stern, is the huge 470 square foot "Master and Commander Suite "featuring a king size bed, separate sitting area with a sofa, and table with chairs that reminds guests of the "captains quarters" from the schooner design that inspired her.

All of the staterooms, located on the "stateroom deck" are larger than traditional liveaboard staterooms.


A FINE RESORT REQUIRES A FINE RESTAURANT


There is a "grazing" breakfast available from 6 am before the first dive. Breakfast is cooked to order and is served after the first morning dive.  There is a buffet lunch and an elegant meal at dinner with waiter service. Additionally, fresh mid-morning and mid-fternoon snacks are served.  

Beverages (non-alcoholic and local beer) are complimentary while onboard.


PRACTICALITIES FOR THE SERIOUS PHOTOGRAPHER


Of course, there is a very serious dedication to accommodating underwater photographers & videographers. 

A spacious camera and equipment room with multiple charging stations, camera benches and a workstation with data transfer and CD/DVD burning facilities. The lounge is equipped with a DVD player and TV for photo/video playback.

You'll find purpose built wash down tanks on the main dive deck. The tank on the starboard side is for camera and computer wash only, the tank on the port side is used for general equipment wash down.
