The Phinisi Schooner "Sea Safari VIII"

The KLM Sea Safari VIII is one of Indonesia's largest and most spacious luxury Phinisi liveaboard. One of the very few dive vessels in Indonesia built according to international marine class specifications, the ship spans an impressive 44 meters long and 10 meters wide providing guests with an abundance of space and luxury. The Sea Safari VIII is our new dedicated vessel for all scheduled cruises in the Far East of the Indonesian Archipelago including the Raja Ampat region.

Indonesian 'Bugis Prahus', commonly known as Phinisi, are made from locally grown timber according to a tradition that dates back to long before Portuguese colonists reached the area. The classic beauty and elegance from the Sea Safari VIII combines this traditional craftsmanship with modern conveniences, providing our guests with luxurious comfort even in the remotest waters of the Indonesian archipelago. The Sea Safari VIII is Indonesia's ultimate luxury liveaboard scuba diving vessel.

Vessel Specifications

The vessel has been extensively customized and refitted to suit long range live aboard scuba diving expeditions and underwater photography. Constructed with three decks the Sea Safari VIII 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.
