This liveaboard was built in 2006 at the famous boat building village of Bulukumba, South Sulawesi, where a tradition of wooden boat construction spans half a millennium. In 2016, she was acquired by Lost Paradise Charters and underwent an extensive refit and overhaul to bring her up to the exacting standards of today’s
lifestyle Charter requirements.

Whilst the boat has been fitted with all modern amenities for maximum comfort, the interior designers have kept a traditional feel throughout. The creative use of teak, bamboo, rattan and local fabrics really gives a sense of the exotic and adds to the unique experience aboard this liveaboard.

The boat itself is unique in the fact she has the largest deck area (diving deck, lounge deck, dining deck) of any phinisi in her class. She is the only one with a swim/dive platform at the rear transom making easy access in and out of the water whilst enjoying paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming or simply jumping of the boat.
