About Dewi Nusantara

One of the most distinctive and well known liveaboards operating in Indonesia, the triple masted schooner, Dewi Nusantara offers true luxury and comfort as it sails around Raja Ampat, over to Cenderawasih bay to see the whale sharks and then around the waters of Komodo.

This majestic 57-metre, triple masted schooner offers superb comfort. With eight spacious staterooms and one huge master suite in the panoramic stern quarters, Dewi Nusantara can take up to eighteen passengers, all Deluxe Staterooms are adaptable for either twin or double use. Each has its own en-suite bathroom (4,5m by 1,3m), reading lights, 220V power points and hanging storage for clothing.

The Master Suite in the aft quarters of the main deck is the signature room of the ship and is a marvel of design and comfort. It occupies the full width of the vessel and from the stern it has a 180 degree view of the ocean behind the ship. The Master Suite has one king size bed. The own en-suite bathroom offers a shower as well as a bath with ocean view.

All the cabins have been individually designed by Bruno Helgen, a French top interior designer.
