39m | 4 CABINS | 10 CREW
Adelaar is a 39-meter privately owned, four cabin luxury schooner with a remarkable history of adventure and global circumnavigation spanning over a century.

Historic Splendor

Built in 1902 and given an exquisite facelift befitting a classic superyacht in 2011, she blends old-world romance and power with impeccable modern standards and an elegant yet unpretentious spirit. Adelaar sails regular, fixed-departure cruises from Bali to Komodo National Park for easy 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 are the epitome of quality and 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

Long, comfortable couches perfect for settling into with a glass of wine make Adelaar’s deck lounge the ultimate spot to gaze at the passing scenery, relax after explorations and read something from the ship’s well-stocked library selection.

Meals enjoyed al fresco on the deck or in the air-conditioned dining room combine the flavors of traditional Indonesian with favorite western dishes. Served up with the freshest ingredients, with accommodations made for dietary restrictions, dining on Adelaar is a feast for the stomach and the senses.

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 remarkable chance, the pair 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.

A vessel built for adventure, 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 based in Indonesia, sailing the matchless waters here as a luxury liveaboard. In 2011 was given her most luxurious upgrade to date and she awaits your arrival.
