Sailing Charter in Indonesia

Dear sailors,

I'm living in Indonesia for a while, it's an amazing country, clear tropical water, fishes coral, surf ... But the only Sailing charter existing are with the traditional phinisi, they are beautiful, but motor-sailor, a bit to heavy to have fun.

I found sailing charter in the neighbor Malaysia or in Thailand, but not here does anyone know why?

Thanks a lot for your answer,

Re: Sailing Charter in Indonesia

Welcome to CF Vincent. You are absolutely right… Fantastic cruising grounds with exotic destinations.

Main reason for no commercial charter has been internal politics wanting to keep their country untainted by western ideas, however that is changing….

Last April at Singapore’s SY Conference the Indonesian Minister of Tourism laid out the welcome mat for charter boats… Big and small.

Frequent visits from Super Yachts has shown them the positive financial spin-offs of marine tourism
Mostly thanks to guys like Jimmy Blee and Richard Lofthouse, they are slowly becoming more yacht friendly.

Still expect a “Ying and a Yang” show…. but as you know… just beautiful!
