Info : Tiger Blue
The charm of this boat lies in the traditional Indonesian elements incorporated in its design, in contrast to some of the more modern yachts we offer. The Tiger Blue is an elegant wooden schooner hand built on the Indonesia island of Sulawesi in the traditional phinisi style, which nonetheless still provides all the luxury one could wish for. The views and the access to unbeliveable locations make it extra special.
The Tiger Blue is available for private charter for a minimum of seven guests and a maximum of twelve, perfect for family or groups of friends wanting an exciting way to experience the exotic islands of Indonesia. It is also available to book by the cabin on several set departures throughout the year.
There are two Master Suites (both with king size doubles which can be made into twins), one double cabin one the upper deck which one a king size bed only, a Twin Cabin with bunks and one Family Cabin with a king sized bed and 2 singles. All are roomy and comfortable with en suite bathrooms for privacy.
The Tiger Blue’s schedule is less flexible than some of the other boats Experience Travel Group work with, as she has a set route around the East Indonesian islands of Komodo, Banda, Raja Ampat, and once a year the ship makes the journeys from Sumba to Flores and from Komodo to Ambon. The crew, however, remain some of the most experienced and knowledgeable and the route takes in some of the most spectacular and undisturbed locations that eastern Indonesia has to offer.
Spacious deck beds and lounges may be found on the upper deck, with a chill out are at the back offering excellent views over the pristine waters and beaches of the coastline. An indoor salon and dining deck offers a more sheltered space for guests to unwind and relax in. Food served upon the Tiger Blue is a mixture of Asian and European styles, though if notified beforehand the boat’s chef is happy to cater to any requests. The ship’s Captain Boum, is an experienced sailor from Belgium. The rest of the staff are all Indonesians offering great local knowledge and friendly service.
An incredible one off experience.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
The stand out experiences all involved some locals: the walk in the Bali rice fields with a guide, the trip to the Borobudur eco-village and ride in a horse cart which also charmingly had us playing the Gamelan with local kids.
