Historic Splendor


The 39-meter Adelaar is a privately owned, four cabin luxury schooner with a remarkable history and track record of circumnavigating the globe.

Built in 1902 and given an exquisite facelift befitting a classic superyacht in 2011, she blends old-world gravitas with impeccable modern standards and an elegant yet unpretentious spirit.

Adelaar sails regular, fixed-departure cruises from Bali to Komodo National Park for easily access to one of Indonesia’s most stunning destinations. Also available for private charters, she is a true gem to sail for the adventurous at heart.













Old World Charm with Modern Comforts


Adelaar’s magnificent teak and marble staterooms exude quality while providing supreme comfort. All four staterooms, located on the lower deck, are air-conditioned with ensuite facilities and state-of-the-art, on-demand movie and music entertainment systems.

Adelaar’s spacious master suite includes a desk, queen-size bed, and convertible couch. Staterooms two and three include desks, double-sized beds and convertible couches, while stateroom four features a super single-sized bed.

Dine & Unwind


Adelaar’s deck lounge features long, comfortable couches designed for taking in the scenery, relaxing after underwater and inland explorations, reading one of the ship’s well-stocked library selections, and of course stargazing – all as tropical sea breezes refresh the senses.

Meals enjoyed al fresco on the deck or in the air-conditioned dining room combine the flavors of traditional Indonesian and favorite Western dishes. Served up with the freshest ingredients, with accommodations made for dietary restrictions, dining on Adelaar caters to all tastes.

A Remarkable Story


Adelaar was first christened as a Dutch cargo ship in 1902 to sail the Baltic Sea. Appropriated by Germans in WWII, she was renamed “Heimatland” and used to transport war goods. In 1954, stripped of her masts and given an engine, she once again carried commercial cargo. Years later, two friends bought the vessel and in 1981 used her to escape East Berlin for the west.

By chance, they began refitting “Heimatland” in the same Dutch shipyard where she was built. An old man recognized her as Adelaar, the ship his father had built, and his original pictures were used to restore the ship to her former glory. Named Adelaar once again, she received a yacht-like interior, a 40-ton steel-concrete keel, and a traditional schooner rig.

Adelaar has sailed the Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas and the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Undergoing a complete re-fit and adding a full-service dive center in 1992, since 1994 she has been sailing Indonesia’s abundant waters as a luxury liveaboard, and in 2011 was given her most luxurious upgrade to date.
