Dunia Baru Liveaboard


As soft waves lap against the hull, you step out on Dunia Baru's deck and savor luxurious sensation of cool Java teak under your bare feet.

The dawn is still young and, as you sail through Indonesia's dawn, volcanoes across the bay stand out vividly, like the printing on a batik sarong. The jungle shoreline is dark and mysterious, hazed here and there by the smudges of smoke from early cooking fires. As you stand on the poop deck, your hand on the rigging, you watch countless iridescent reef fish shimmering in the clear water below. The balmy air still tastes of the tropical night and a blood-orange sun is beginning to tinge the eastern sky with the first promises of another day here in the land that was known as the Morning of the Earth. The Indonesian archipelago is still a brave new world where each day is full of promise.

Almost three times the size of Texas, Indonesia boasts an estimated 17,508 islands (although, even today, nobody is entirely sure) and Dunia Baru - meaning New World in Indonesian - is setting sail to open up some of the most mysterious corners of this land of adventure.

The most majestic traditional-style superyacht ever built in this country is waiting to carry you to hauntingly remote, heart-achingly beautiful islands, full of enchanting people. She will transport you luxuriously back to the golden age of discovery among these spice-scented isles. Dunia Baru is weighing anchor into an adventurous new world of sea-faring luxury in our planet's most excitingly diverse archipelago.

Hot equatorial sun on your back, cool Java teak deck under your feet and a healthy tradewind in your sails: there's no better way to appreciate Indonesia than aboard the most luxurious traditionally-inspired superyacht ever built in this country.


"I wanted Dunia Baru to be much more than just the best boat ever built in Indonesia. I wanted to be number one, two and three" -Mark Robba, owner of Dunia Baru-

A traditional superyacht of this class has never before been seen, and no expense was spared in building and equipping the boat that has become a tribute to Indonesian craftsmanship and shipbuilding traditions.

"I wanted to support the local Konjo building community and help them to showcase their talents and abilities," said Mark Robba.

The Konjo shipwrights of Ara, Sulawesi, are the most renowned boat builders in Indonesia. Traditionally, they have built the finest trading vessels in these islands but the Dunia Baru project presented a challenge even for these ship-building perfectionists. One of their elders, Pak Haji Wahab, agreed to travel to Sangkulirang (Kalimantan), source of the finest timber, with 20 master shipwrights from his village to oversee a building project that would eventually last eight years.

Marine architect Michael Kasten of Kasten Marine Design, Inc. was in charge of honing the traditional lines into a state-of-the-art hull that would offer massive improvements in terms of handling, stability and safety.

"I was extremely impressed with the skill of the local builders, Kasten recalls."

"They might have been skeptical at first, but we soon established a great respect for each other's traditions - which are in fact largely in harmony, the same lessons having been taught by the sea itself to mariners of both East and West."

The architect had learned valuable lessons on other phinisi (traditional Indonesian sailing ship that has two masts) and his goal was to study the 'eastern' methods and to absorb them into the design but - more than ever this time around - both the architect and owner were adamant that nothing but the very best timber would be used anywhere on the boat.

After the ironwood hull and super-structure was constructed in Kalimantan it was towed to Bali where the carefully designed interior was built by the finest carpenters and craftsmen on what has long been known as an island of artists. World-class marine systems, with meticulous attention to safety and reliability were designed and the installation done by an ABYC-certified marine systems engineer from NorEast Marine Systems in Fairhaven MA, USA. The first-class machinery, electrical and marine airconditioning, combined with a fully integrated light, sound and entertainment system helped to raise Dunia Baru far beyond the realm of traditional phinisi and promote her to a world-class superyacht.

Dunia Baru's hull and structure were designed and built to Germanischer Lloyds standards and all marine systems meet or exceed ABYC (American Boat & Yacht Certificate) standards - ensuring unparalleled reliability and safety. But what was more momentous for the Indonesian crew, is that Dunia Baru's maiden voyage was to the Konjo tribal homelands in December 2013 for a sacred blessing. In a ceremony that pre-dates the arrival of the first bule (white) sailors, the Konjo spiritual leaders led 250 people onboard to sacrifice a black goat on the deck.

"The elders took a good look around the boat. They agreed the she's the best boat ever built in this country. She's the perfection of hundred of years of shipbuilding experience. -deckhand Jamal, fifth generation in a line of Konjo shipwrights


Welcome home

From the very moment you step onboard Dunia Baru, you know that you're embarking on a voyage like no other.

The casual, luxurious design of the boat's interior entices you to make yourself comfortable - and it won't take long before you feel completely at home. Grab a book from the library and stretch out on the tempting sofas, or order a cocktail and settle for some sunbathing in one of the outdoor lounging decks. Dunia Baru's spacious timber staterooms invite long, lazy mornings. if you can resist the lure of the open decks and the tropical tradewinds.

From the sunbeds on the open-air poop-deck to the point of the elegantly sweeping bow, Dunia Baru is yours to wander, barefoot and free-spirited. While Dunia Baru boasts all the elements of a modern superyacht, there is none of the stark austerity of the conventional "white boat". This is pure Indonesian seafaring hospitality raised to a level that has not been seen before.

Dunia Baru is Indonesia's premier luxury yacht. She boasts six extremely spacious en-suite staterooms, and there is a wonderfully elegant full-beam master-suite on the aft upper-deck, with a large bathroom, and a private day-bed sundeck. There are ample lounges and outdoor relaxing areas, including a star-gazing foredeck with beanbags, an expansive shaded lounging area (converted to a cocktail lounge at sundown) and an aft poop-deck sunbathing area.

Each stateroom is equipped with an independent air-conditioning system, mood lighting and a 32-inch LED flat-screen TV with DVD and satellite TV. The lounge is equipped with a 60-inch LED TV, Marantz AV system with speakers and subwoofers from Boston Acoustics. Sonos integrated 14-zone (interior and exterior) music system is set up throughout the ship (operated from a computer server) and there's touch-screen controlled custom lighting.


"The absolute necesity, when we design Dunia Baru, was to have a gourmet eating galley that would be the center point of the boat, where family and friends can spend quality time together"

Dunia Baru boasts and open-air aft-deck dining area and social center-point of the boat - a wonderful eat-in galley with a center island commercial range. Long, relaxed evenings can be spent sipping cocktails and sharing not only meals but also experiences and adventures.

The boat's specially designed galley encompasses everything necessary for even the most extensive ocean-voyage (including a custom Bush walk-in refrigerator, plus two chest freezers). Almost unique on a ship of this sort, there's even a separate professional standard prep-room for kitchen staff while our celebrated chef displays his talents on a 60-inch center island commercial range with tepanyaki grill and custom hood.


Welcome to your adventure

"This is your passage to Indonesia. It could be the most sumptuously relaxing voyage you've  ever experienced... or your ticket to a world of adventure!

Indonesia is the world's most exciting island nation, where every day offers something new. You could meet the friendly inhabitants of a Sea Gypsy village and learn about the ancient science of traditional medicine from people who were harvesting these waters long before the Europeans even heard of the Spice Islands. Further east you could experience the tension and excitement of a trek on an island inhabited by the notoriously aggressive Komodo dragons. And to end a day, how about taking a hike on a remote island where few have walked and watch a scarlet sun set over one of our planet's most beautiful spots?

Under water, Indonesia's offerings are no less enticing. Would you like to dive with turtles, or with giant manta rays that measure six meters across their wingtips? Or how bout go for a paddle a kayak across the brooding waters of a crater lake? Why not let our dive-master lead you to a bubbling seabed, where volcanic gases erupt threatening through the thin crust of Indonesia's famous Ring of Fire?

More than just a fully-equipped dive-boat, Dunia Baru carries equipment for a comprehensive range of water-sports activities, including two jet-skis, three kayaks, Sunfish sailing dingy, standup paddleboards, banana boat, surfboards, waterskis, fishing rods and tackle, and three inflatable ribs.

There are said to be 17,508 islands in Indonesia but nobody is entirely sure. if there's any country in the world where you could potentially discover a new island then this is it.

You'll often be startled by the world of difference between one island and the next. Whether the local communities are Hindu, Muslim or Christian or timelessly animist, you will be sure to meet some of the friendliest and most hospitable people in the world here. And they will be happy to go out of their way to help you to understand and get a feel for the richness of their traditional culture. Although just a short jaunt away from Bali, for example, Muslim Lombok is entirely different to her traditional Hindu sister island. The soaring volcanic peak of Spice Island Ternate seems a world away from the haunting (and, if legends are true, intensely haunted) lowland forests of the Kei Islands, at the other end of the same archipelago.

Dunia Baru lives up to her name by sailing you into the realm of a new world. Sometimes you might see several new worlds in a single day! Here are just a few of the breathtakingly exciting locations around Dunia Baru’s home-waters.


The island of the gods

The "Island of the Gods" is worthy of all the praise that is so often heaped upon it. There are few places in the world that have remained so completely true to their culture in the face of such an influx of tourists. Having said that, even today you don't have to go far off the beaten track to find timelessly traditional villages and tropical valleys that are rioting with jungle vegetation. Great sweeping vistas of rice terraces ripple across the natural contours of the hillside like the fingerprints of the gods as they climb towards the sacred inland peaks. Most tourists tend to confine themselves with a jaunt from the beautiful southern beaches around Nusa Dua, Bukit Peninsula, Canggu and Seminyak to the island's spiritual capital of Ubud, but it's impossible to take a roadtrip anywhere on the island without stumbling across a colorful and intriguing ceremony that leaves you with a feeling of having been blessed simply to have witnessed it.


Humble Lombok has traditionally been seen as poor cousin to neighboring Bali. But there is more to the island than just a shadowy reflection of the famous "Island of the Gods" and Lombok has a character all her own. The beauty of Lombok lies in the roughness and the more "primitive" nature of the island. The jungles are not trimmed and manicured, but beautifully wild and lush. The beaches are white, pristine and untouched. The daily markets are boisterous and messy, with cidomos [horse-carts], running children and bellowing hawkers. Lombok's culture of dances and music are not delicate and sophisticated but, instead more masculine and warlike.


At the centre of the Lesser Sunda Islands and in the heart of the Ring of Fire, Sumbawa is one of Indonesia's forgotten islands. While a handful of desperado surfers chase legendary waves on the south coast, few visitors ever explore the north coast. As you sail the Flores Sea with Dunia Baru, you will often feel that you have the ocean entirely to yourself. Here you can paddle standup paddleboards and kayaks into the brooding immensity of a crater lake or explore a dive-spot where the volcanic forces in the earth's belly bubble gases out of the rocks to rise through the dark water like diamonds.


Walk with Dragons

At first sight the mysterious islands of the Komodo archipelago can be intimidating places. Dappled by a stormy monsoon sky, they rise out of the Indonesian sea in great humpbacked ridges that are covered with windblown savannah grasses and spiked with the tousled heads of lontar palms. This is the land of dragons where you can walk among the giant reptiles of Rinca Island (more spectacularly aggressive than those of Komodo itself). The tropical waters of Komodo National Park has long been famous as one of the most species-rich tropical underwater environments on earth, with an official count of more than 1000 types of fish and 260 corals.


The cape of flowers

Flores is a vividly lush and brutally beautiful island that has changed only little since the first Portuguese explorers arrived here (the majority of the population is still Catholic). Apparently falling instantly in love with this paradise, the Portuguese named their discovery "Cabo das Flores". The Cape of Flowers. There are no less than 14 active volcanoes on Flores - only mighty Java and Sumatra have more - and there are also the mysterious lakes of Keli Mutu. Set among the rugged volcanic peaks and terraced paddies of central Flores, they are one of the wonders of Indonesia, each a radically different color from its neighbor.


The greatest dive spot in Asia

The Alor Islands would have the reputation of being one of the greatest diving spots in Asia.if only it wasn't also one of its best-kept secrets. This is another of Indonesia's countless secret spots, and still largely unexplored. Benefiting (as does Raja Ampat) from the collision of Pacific and Indian ocean currents, the Alor Islands are an incredibly rich marine habitat. Only 168,000 people live on Alor main island (there's just one town). The islands are as rich in culture as they are in marine species: there are said to be 15 different indigenous languages in this little archipelago alone. This is the place to come if you want to see a part of Indonesia that few people ever reach.


At 1.39 million hectares, this is Indonesia's second largest national park (only Cendrawasih in West Papua is bigger) and one of the few parks where traditional inhabitants are granted the right to harvest natural resources. There are 39 islands in Wakatobi but the archipelago's modern name was derived from the first letters of the four major islands: Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia and Binongko. Today the entire region is famous to divers the world over for its outstanding reefs but the Tukangbesi Islands, as they were originally called, are also home to nine villages of Bajo people (commonly known by the overly simplistic name of "Sea Gypsies"). With their unique language, lifestyle and traditions the Bajo live in isolated stilt villages, entirely separate from the land-based inhabitants of the islands. Dunia Baru can take you to Wakatobi's greatest secret spots and introduce you to a way of life you never knew existed.

Spice Islands

Explore fabled lands

The Spice Islands, also known as Malukus, have been described as a hothouse of biodiversity and it was here that the great Welsh naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace came up with the theory of evolution in 1858. Wallace expounded the theory to his friend Charles Darwin, who was coming to similar conclusions in the far-off Galapagos. While the sleepy provincial capital Ambon is large enough to have a chain of volcanoes, boasting hot-springs and sultry rainforests, it seems incredible that the tiny island of Ternate could once have been the administrative headquarters from which all of the Dutch East Indies was governed. Perhaps these islands were destined for great things from early on. After all, the Chinese had traded for spices here long before European explorers even found their fabled route to the east. This archipelago - wedged tightly in the nutcracker of shifting tectonic plates in what is ominously known as the Maluku Sea Collision Zone - was the only place in the known world where nutmeg (a spice which was said to be a cure for the dreaded black plague) grew. Even today the primeval forests and ancient plantations of the Moluccas are fragrant with the scent of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and mace. Among these mysterious islands, unique cultures and traditions thrive that are unusual even by Indonesian standards. The Kei Islands may well be one of the most haunted places in the world and locals will tell you intriguing tales of local spirits and ghosts.invariably friendly, they say as long as you treat their islands with respect.

Raja Ampat

Extraordinary diving

Described as the most extraordinary marine habitat on the entire planet, the 40,000 square kilometres of Raja Ampat lie at the point where the Pacific currents collide with the Indian Ocean. These nutrient-rich waters have spawned (quite literally) unparalleled marine life. There are 1300 species of fish (although new species are regularly discovered) and 15 species of mammals. Three-quarters of all the hard corals in the world are found here. Dunia Baru's dive master knows the secret reefs and channels intimately and can show you everything from pygmy sea horses to manta rays that measure six meters across from wing tip to wing tip. Be sure to schedule time also for some topside exploration and you have an excellent chance of spotting the legendary birds of paradise or even the bizarre tree kangaroo.


A Diver's wildest dream

This immense bay (the name means Bird of Paradise Bay) is nestled into the crook of Bird's Head Peninsula on the wild north coast of New Guinea Island. Despite being Indonesia's largest marine national park (14,535 square kilometers) since 2002, this area remains so isolated and wild as to be almost undocumented. There are marine species here that have never been documented and among the larger known inhabitants you could see four species of turtles, sharks, dolphins, rays, dugong, whale sharks and even blue whales. Up to 60 percent of the entire area is covered in live corals making this a potential World Heritage Site.and a diver's dream.
