Her chef can cook fragrant and delicious Indonesian dishes but is equally skilled at five-star western cuisine. Guests can dine in at the artfully crafted salon dining table, around the unique teppanyaki grill in the open gourmet galley, or sit outside under the stars on the aft deck.
Her cruise director is a PADI-certified dive instructor and knows these waters and islands like the back of his hand. He is as happy leading dive trips from the yacht’s well-equipped dive centre, as he is taking guests on hikes to the best sunset viewpoints.
Dunia Baru’s captain’s extensive local knowledge is second-to-none and he is known to hoist the sails whenever possible. It is a beautiful sight seeing Dunia Baru bringing Indonesian nautical traditions back to life, her mighty bark colored sails straining in the wind.

Dunia Baru’s build was an adventure in itself. The ironwood hull was handcrafted by master boat builders on-site in Kalimantan, about a 12-hour drive from the nearest airport. Her owner stayed true to his vision throughout the build process – to create the finest yacht ever built in Indonesia. The results speak for themselves.
As a guest you will feel Dunia Baru’s pioneering spirit and attention to quality running through the yacht and her onboard culture. She is the ultimate vessel for exploring Indonesia and Southeast Asia’s hidden gems.
