Boat Specifications

Ombak Putih - Boat Specifications:

Ombak Putih's main deck is dominated by the 25m tall mainmast and a large deck table where you can have dinner under the stars. On the deck house level on the aft side of the boat, a spacious sun deck (with canopy for some shade) overlooks the sea. Here you can read in a comfortable deck chair or dream away on one of our comfortable day beds.Your accommodation is below decks, where you will find twelve cabins, four with double beds and four configured as twin-bunks and four configured as triple, with a double and an extra singe bed. Unlike typical ship accommodation, your cabin provides ample space to store your stuff and still move about with ease. 

All cabins are air-conditioned (individually controlled) and have private bathrooms with warm and cold water. Obviously, we provide all hotel amenities you may require.
We know from experience that during a cruise in the tropics some of our guests discover the pleasure of sleeping under the stars and there is plenty of room to sleep on the upper deck. Mattresses as well as light blankets are available for that purpose.

The Ombak Putih is a mix of traditional and modern design. Her hull and rigging are traditional, while the deck house and interior were custom designed to adapt to Western tastes of space, privacy and comfort. While Indonesian traditional sailing vessels are customarily referred to as Bugi Schooners, strictly speaking she is rigged as a Ketch, the foremast being higher than the aft mast.


Construction and Design Parameters

The construction followed age old and well established design principles. First, traditional methods were use to determine the final dimensions of the ship. Throughout Asia the Buginese people from the island of Sulawesi are well- known for their shipbuilding skills and what is most remarkable is that this huge hand made structure (36m length, a beam of 10m and a draft of 3,5 m) was made without any drawings, fully relying on the intuitive craftsmanship of its builders as passed along through many generations. A Dutch naval architect was hired to recalculate and verify all dimensions for ultimate seaworthiness. He designed the interior and the deck house.

A second design principle we insisted upon was that we wanted the ship to be as safe as possible. This meant that only first quality timber was used and therefore the hull is considerably thicker than most other wooden vessels (ranging from 10cm down below to 6cm near the deck). The entire hull from the keel up to the decklevel was made from carefully selected and seasoned ironwood (ulin). Other safety measures include a 'work horse' Detroit Diesel engine, a brand that has proven its durability and reliability over the last fifty years (most ships of the US Navy have Detroit Diesel engines), anchor chains instead of wire rope, and many safety features demanded by the Australian coast guard for ocean going vessels.

A third design principle was that we wanted ample space for both guests and crew. We designed and built a large deckhouse that was low enough to maintain the original sail plan, while still providing sufficient sleeping and living quarters for the crew. There is a spacious lounge and a large galley. Behind the bridge on top of the deck house, there is a large sun deck, partly covered by an awning to also provide some necessary shade under the tropical sun.

Safety and Seaworthiness

The vessel is fitted with all internationally required safety and communications equipment such as SSB and VHF radios, life jackets, life rafts, and satellite telephone. Experienced navigators consider it an axiom that the seaworthiness of a vessel depends on the seaworthiness of the crew. Our ship has a well trained and well seasoned Indonesian crew of sixteen, complemented by a multilingual European Cruise Director. We are proud of the fact that most of the crewmembers that joined us when the vessel was launched are still on board today.



The main deck is where the dive activities are conducted as well as the lounge, tender deck and galley.

The upper deck houses the wheel house and our two sundecks and the owner's cabin.
