Dunia Baru is a 51-metre phinisi style yacht that was built with exquisite attention to detail over 8 years and launched in early 2014. Constructed with traditional Indonesian methods showcasing the craftsmanship of the local Konjo shipbuilding community, Dunia Baru merges old and new with all the high-spec amenities you might expect to find on a modern superyacht.
Staying true to her Indonesian name, Dunia Baru takes private charter guests to a “New World” saturated in luxury and adventure, whether it’s witnessing a lava flow in Alor, surfing Sumbawa’s perfect waves or diving among fields of pristine coral in Raja Ampat. Each itinerary is tailored according to guests’ every desires, and sailing with Dunia Baru will give guests the opportunity to swim among some of the most remote and astonishingly diverse reefs in the world, kayak in crater lakes, pitch up for picnics on deserted pink beaches and explore uninhabited islands where ancient Komodo dragons roam against a backdrop of smouldering volcanoes.
Originally built for families, Dunia Baru makes for incredible adventures for both families and friends, with an expert crew of 18, including a cruise director, a dive instructor and a chef. She is equipped with the highest quality tech and active gear, including a Sonos Integrated sound system, top of the range dive gear, jet skis and more.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES
Dunia Baru has 7 beautifully appointed cabins, including an incredible master suite on the upper aft deck and 6 large cabins below deck. The huge full beam master suite features wraparound windows with 270-degree views, a private balcony with a day bed and a bathroom with double vanities and a rainforest shower. The 6 cabins below deck are large and sumptuous with ensuite bathrooms.
In an effortless combination of ancient technique and modernity, Dunia Baru pleases the crowds with a seamless narrative from her traditional Indonesian exterior to her slick modern interiors. The attention to detail on this vessel is exquisite, from individually carved wooden hinges adorning each door to a hand-made steering wheel, tasteful soft furnishings and 1.5km of subtle LED strip lighting.
Within her 50m there is ample space to relax across 3 decks, be it on the bow, the front deck, the wheelhouse balcony or the sundeck and dining area of the aft deck, leading out from a cavernous family-style kitchen complete with bar stools and a teppanyaki grill for watching the expert onboard chef perform his magic.
A fully integrated Sonos 14 zone sound, light and entertainment system is controllable on an iPad throughout the boat and covers all in and outdoor areas across 30 speakers, sub-woofers and ipod docking systems. But perhaps most excitingly, Dunia Baru features 34 underwater LED lights that light up the ocean at night and attract a wealth of feeding fish and the occasional manta ray, dolphin and whale shark.
