The Phinisi Schooner "Cheng Ho"

The Cheng Ho is our newest and biggest vessel. With a length of 49 meters, a beam of 11 meters, three decks and 22 cabins this liveaboard offers total comfort and plenty of room to lose yourself between dives.
The Cheng Ho is named after the famous Chinese mariner, explorer, diplomat and fleet admiral who played an important part in Asia’s maritime history. Years before Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean looking for a water route to Asia he was exploring the Indian Ocean and the Western Pacific.

Facilities & services
Constructed with three decks the Cheng Ho gives you plenty of space to lose oneself; whether it is in the air-conditioned comfort of the large saloon or on the decks under the shade of one of the ship's huge sails.
The cabins are cleaned twice a day with a turn down service at night, with a very high staff to guest ratio on board service is excellent. Languages spoken include German, French, Spanish, Italian, Indonesian and English.

Vessel specifications
The Cheng Ho is a modified Pinisi (Bugis) Schooner constructed in 2002. Blending in perfectly with the environment, these boats are the most impressive fleet of wooden sailing vessels still in regular commercial work.
Constructed with three decks the Cheng Ho gives you plenty of space to lose oneself; whether it is in the air-conditioned comfort of the large saloon or on the decks under the shade of one of the ship's huge sails.
Very importantly the liveaboard is comprehensively refitted during an annual dry docking at the beginning of the year plus regular maintainance is carried out throughout the year to ensure that the vessel is always seaworthy.
