Since 1994, Adelaar, together with her loyal crew of seasoned seaman, has sailed the rich waters of the Indonesian Archipelago, providing amazing diving and sailing holidays. To this day, She remains one of the industry’s leading Komodo liveaboards.
The luxurious interior of Adelaar today, bears almost no resemblance of her past self. What started as a small 6 month project in 2008 to add en-suite bathrooms, escalated into a dream for a more exquisite and classical look. When the historic sailboat was unveiled in 2011 after almost 3 years in the making, the results were stunning. She was built to impeccable standards, in classical yacht style, with paneled teak wood walls and high ceilings throughout. Sailing the waters of Indonesia year-round, Adelaar caters to today’s discerning travelers. We have made it our mission for them to experience the best in small group luxury sailing and diving.
