Dunia Baru, Indonesia
After visiting Dunia Baru at Singapore Yacht Show in April 2014, we kindly received and accepted an alluring invitation for a FAM trip in Indonesia – Komodo Islands area, in June. We had a great chance to truly experience the quality of her services and to have an idea of the cruising and diving itineraries together with a variety of possible activities that Dunia Baru can offer to her guests.
DUNIA BARU, which means NEW WORLD, is an Indonesian 51 mt superyacht, that the American visionary owner built from scratch based on the design of the traditional Indonesian Phinisi. She was launched in late 2013 and is one of the few luxury charter boats available and licensed in Indonesia.
We spent 5 memorable days in the Komodo islands. We cruised, we did scuba diving and snorkelling with Ramon, the enthusiastic Mexican dive master. We had the chance to see all of kinds of animals, underwater and ashore, from the manta rays, sharks, turtles and barracudas to the Jurassic Komodo Dragons. We visited local villages and had late afternoon trekking’s, which allowed us to enjoy unforgettable sunsets on deserted bays, where just our Dunia Baru and the welcome back- cocktails of Windu were waiting for us.
By the way, what to say about the on-board 5 stars services ?Any moment of the day was fine to taste some of Dunia Baru Indonesian and International cuisine, or to play with her water toys – sunfish sailboat, sea canoes, jet skis, paddle boards. The Dunia Baru Indonesian crew was always ready to kindly and efficiently satisfy any of our requests, or to follow the advices we gave them in order to improve even more the level of the service.
Indeed 5 days are definitely not enough to enjoy all Komodo area and the variety of choices it can offer, nevertheless enough to stamp “ADAGIO APPROVED” on Dunia Baru CV.
Dunia Baru can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 comfortable double cabins, including a huge master cabin aft located in the upper bridge.
We warmly recommend Dunia Baru both to passionate divers and to just sea lovers; we are utterly pleased to share our experience, in order to advise you at our best.
The cruising area is Komodo and Raja Ampat, depending on the season.
