Raja Laut is an elegant and timeless adaptation of a 19th century trading schooner. In 2015 she underwent major renovations and modernised in line with what one might expect of a contemporary luxury yacht.view
Built in the traditional phinisi style by Bugis craftsmen on the island of Sulawesi, Carpe Diem is a gorgeous 24-metre yacht that was recently refitted to provide all the modern conveniences you would expect of a luxury private charter ship. With four beautifully appointed cabins, she can comfortably sleep up to 10 guests, making her a popular choice for families and small groups seeking amazing liveaboard adventures in Indonesia.
Carpe Diem has ample space for guests to spread out, relax and enjoy the views passing by. On the main deck there is an al fresco dining and lounge area with a low table, hammock and sun loungers. This area also doubles as a yoga space for sunrise stretching sessions. On the upper deck there is another chill-out area with sun loungers, bean bags and unobstructed views all around, and on the foredeck there is a dive station. Inside you will find a cosy saloon with a 10-seater dining table, a galley, and library stocked with plenty of books.
Journey to exotic tropical islands, incredible dive sites and some of Indonesia’s most popular travel destinations aboard Carpe Diem on voyages to Lombok, the Gili Islands, Flores, Komodo and Raja Ampat. Carpe Diem’s liveaboard trips range from one week to nine days and you have the option be as active or laid back as you like. You can spend your days trekking up volcanoes and hiking through the rainforest to amazing lakes and waterfalls in Lombok, partying the nights away and dancing under the stars at beach bars in the Gilis or exploring the untouched islands and underwater coral gardens of Raja Ampat.
Of the four cabins on Carpe Diem, the master cabin on the main deck is the most impressive, as it spans almost the entire width of the boat and has large windows on three sides and a separate shower room and ensuite bathroom. On the lower deck there is a comfortable double cabin and two more cabins with double and single beds. Each cabin features gorgeous teak wood floors, Indonesian textiles, and its own air-conditioning unit, writing desk, ensuite bathroom and ample storage space.
There are six friendly and professional crew members on Carpe Diem including a cruise director, private chef and a dive guide. Should you want or need anything on your voyage, simply ask, as the crew can arrange everything beach barbecues to romantic candlelit dinners, expeditions to little-known dive sites and surf breaks, and visits to local villages to learn more about the people, history and unique cultures of Indonesia. The crew can also set you up with diving and snorkelling equipment, stand up paddle boards, wakeboards and kayaks.
Carpe Diem was built in 2014 and spans 24m. 4 cabins accommodate up to 10 guests. She cruises at a maximum speed of 8 knots.
