The Phinisi

Duyung Baru or ‘The New Mermaid’ is a gorgeous schooner. Built in 2010 on the shore of Bira and completely renovated in 2016. The traditional Phinisi vessel is set-up specifically with diving and cruising in mind. Do not think that being ‘traditional’ means lack of safety or luxury. Duyung Baru is equipped with high-tech safety systems and designed for a unique cruising experience of comfort and adventure. .


During the cruise, a top deck lounge provides enough space for sunbathing, relaxing or simply enjoying the views. The Phinisi liveaboard has a beautiful kitchen and dining area with an open space. The food on board is prepared with love. The selection of dishes ranges from fresh croissants and bread for breakfast to an delicious fusion of traditional Asian and Western foods. The owner Yani is onboard herself and ensures the highest quality of service.


Guests are accommodated in two private double cabins and one twin cabin. The tastefully designed and spacious luxury cabins have all air conditioning and hot showers. Double cabins are equipped with a king size bed and spring mattresses. Single beds are 2m X 1.40m in size and also have spring mattresses. Enjoy your adventure in comfort and well rested.
