Superb Dutch Engineering
Mutiara Laut is a masterful creation fusing the seafaring capabilities of an 18th century North Atlantic schooner with the heart of an Indonesian phinisi. The streamlined ironwood hull, tall masts and massive sails contribute to upwind performance unlike any other vessel of her size.
Mutiara Laut’s design is a harmonious fusion of Asian and classic European craftsmanship paying homage to old world charm. The sumptuous styling contributes to the feeling of a classic, floating hotel ready to explore the ends of the Earth.
The full beam master suite opens to a private deck aft. Tastefully decorated with Asian accents, it features a king berth, desk and seating area, ideal for extended passages at sea. Walk-in wardrobes provide abnormally generous storage space.
SIX GUEST CABINS
Each of the six ensuite cabins features a settee that converts into an extra single bed while the single beds in the two forward cabins can be converted into double beds. The cabins are equipped with entertainment systems, abundant storage and ample shelving.
Mutiara Laut’s experienced and friendly crew are what make the difference between a satisfactory charter and falling in love with sailing in Indonesia. To hoist the 850 square meters of sails requires working in sync. Each crew member is proficient in his own field but when you see them in action, you will feel part of a special team.
Captain Andi has been with Mutiara Laut since she was launched in 2010. He is of the Bugis ethnic group, legendary for their maritime culture. Captain Andi has continued his family tradition of sailing throughout Asia for the better part of two decades.
Arifin, the cruise director, has been also been sailing the Indonesian archipelago for more than 20 years. His intricate relationships in places less traveled including Papua is an extraordinary asset to guests looking for unique experiences.
Anis, the chief officer is from Lembata, where traditional subsistence whaling on oar-powered boats is still practiced. He has the widest smile of the crew and can frequently be seen entertaining guests on deck with a guitar around his neck.
Mutiara Laut’s story is that of the journey of a remarkable man and his life experience as a yacht builder. Leendert Philippus Van Oostenbrugg, Leo for short, translated every part of his love for the ocean and sailing into Mutiara Laut, which was to be his final yacht and masterpiece.
Having traveled the planet six times over as a captain, Leo started a shipyard in Holland creating magnificent yachts for people who shared a similar vision for life – to explore the world in hope of discovering their true selves. After a successful career Leo retired in Bali only to realize that he wasn’t quite ready to slow down.
While cruising through the Indonesian Archipelago Leo was inspired to fulfill his last wish and set out to combine the sum of his life’s sailing experience with a custom ironwood hull from Kalimantan. Leo lived to see Mutiara Laut under sail and sadly passed away shortly after. His memory lives on each time she heads upwind.
There is no replacement for the feeling onboard a wooden sailing yacht blending in with the archipelago. This was Leo’s vision – the fusion of master craftsmanship on the ocean with wind in the sails, traveling to far away islands. Sailing Mutiara Laut in Indonesian waters is unlike any other experience on Earth.
