Climb aboard the Aliikai Voyage for easy-going access to the islands of Indonesia in relaxed luxury. This 41-meter wooden yacht comfortably caters for up to 15 guests as they explore all corners of this incredible Asian archipelago. This classic sailboat, originally constructed in the South Sulawesi village of Bulukumba, was given a complete refit by a team of highly skilled boat-builders, craftspeople, and finishers over three years to create a quintessential seagoing cruiser. The exceptional attention to detail on the Aliikai liveaboard combines classic Indonesian detail with contemporary luxury to provide space, comfort, and privacy over three magnificent decks. Seven palatial staterooms deliver a comfortable retreat while the lounge, dining room, sky deck, and vast main deck provide plenty of space on which to get together with friends, family, and fellow sailors to enjoy the incredible marine and island scenery.

The Aliikai Voyage provides respite from the elements in its multi-purpose indoor lounge with panoramic views through its wrap-around glass windows with access to the outdoor lounge through folding glass doors to the comfortable sofas and day beds of the foredeck. The upper deck lounge on this luxury yacht charter in Indonesia is a multifunctional area where guests are invited to indulge in early morning meditation and yoga, relax during the day while enjoying the gentle sea breezes, and join the other guests in the evening for a bucket of popcorn and a movie beneath the stars. The Aliikai Voyage’s 12-strong Indonesian crew is a highly experienced group of individuals led by our talented expedition leader. All are keen to share their knowledge and reveal the archipelago’s secrets to guests. Only the freshest local ingredients and a myriad of sought-after spices go into the mouthwatering dishes created by the Aliikai cruise’s MasterChef and his talented team. Every voyage on this incredible private yacht charter in Indonesia is a unique journey into the undiscovered heart of Southeast Asia.

Your Host and The Team

“Our passion for adventure has taken us to the far corners of the world. What we‘ve discovered from planning our personal travels is that nothing brings a family or friends together like experiencing the wondrous world in comfort and ease. Traveling in a well thought out space with multiple activities and added amenities allows everyone to explore a new destination on their schedule while creating memories that will last a lifetime. When designing Aliikai, we wanted to create a yacht that brings people together, not only the people you‘re traveling with but with those living in the far reaches of Indonesia. Experiencing foreign cultures allows us to see the world from a new perspective and appreciation.”

The Ultimate Traditional Wooden Luxury Yacht Charter in Indonesia

As well as providing the ultimate luxury yacht charter in Indonesia, a journey aboard the Aliikai Voyage is the gateway to an unforgettable cultural awakening. Many of Indonesia’s more than 18,000 islands remain relatively untouched by the footprints of tourism, and the crew of the Aliikai are experts in leading expeditions into the heart of this remarkable and diverse nation. Once the focus of the Spice Trade, the Banda Islands await to reveal centuries of secrets. The Aliikai Voyage team has a close relationship with indigenous tribes including the South Kalimantan Dyak Tribe, the Ikat Weavers of the Sunda Islands, and the Papua Asmat Tribe. As well as unbeatable cultural experiences, guests on an Aliikai cruise can step ashore for an island trek. Choose from breathtaking volcanic landscapes within this part of the Ring of Fire, island peaks with spectacular views, or jungle expeditions to hidden waterfalls and wonderful wildlife.

Indonesia is home to incredibly diverse island fauna including the mythical Komodo dragon and scintillating birds of paradise, and denizens of the deep such as the mighty Manta Ray and magnificent Whale Shark. Getting up close to the wildlife without any disruption can be done by using a kayak or paddleboard. After a day exploring the Indonesian island treasures, what could be more enticing than an on-deck Balinese massage from one of the Aliikai Voyage’s skilled therapists? Or why not treat yourself to the ultimate in pampering with a beach massage listening to the waves lapping the sand and the breeze in the palm trees? Keen to make the Aliikai Cruise in Indonesia fun for all the family, “Be a Captain for a Day” encourages children to get involved with the running of the ship, including learning the basics of navigating the Indonesian waters and visiting local markets to pick out the best of the fishermen’s catch to prepare for a tasty dinner. Discovery, fascination and wonder-filled moments you on an Aliikai Voyage.
