Ratu Motu Indonesia

With crystalline waves breaking on its shores year-round, Indonesia is a water wonderland.  It’s no easy feat to navigate an archipelago that contains roughly 18,000 islands.

Now, travellers can journey to unexplored pristine beaches, waking to a different break each day on the Ratu Motu, a 129-foot power yacht.

Step on board this award winning, immaculately maintained, professionally operated luxury vessel.  Ratu Motu, formerly Indies Trader IV, offers an unforgettable charter experience for families, groups of friends or business associates looking for adventure, fishing, surfing or relaxation.

We can create an unforgettable cruising experience within Indonesia’s mecca of surfing, or take you on an adventure going beyond the surf to remote destinations removed from the regular tourist routes (and civilization for that matter).

Ratu Motu has 10 guest cabins, a sun deck and lounge, swim platform, observation deck, and dining room.

The boat is packed with water-sports equipment, including stand-up paddle boards, kayaks and snorkeling and fishing gear. Our experienced crew—including a private chef—is part of the package.

Let us tailor an experience in Indonesia for your next special holiday

We look forward to meeting you on board.

Salon lounge

The Salon lounge is the main inside hang out area. There are two large wrap around couches that you can take a comfortable break from the heat reading, playing board games or watching movies on the flat screen plasma TV. With large windows on either side of the lounge you can still take in the breathtaking scenery without compromising your view.

Fine Dining

The dining and the salon lounge is open plan, creating a large inside area that creates a sense of luxury with the amount of space.  You can sit in the dining area for your lunch and dinner meals. There is full wait-staff to tend to your every need while you sit back and relax in the comfortable executive dining chairs.

Sun deck

The sundeck is the perfect place to sit outside whilst on the move.  With the wind in your hair and your skin lightly protected by some shade you can sit and take in the views on the way to your next destination.  This is the prime outside viewing area on the boat and somewhere you’ll never forget long after your trip has finished.

Observation deck

This area is fully undercover with lounge chairs as well as coffee tables and a standing bar. The observation area is the outside place to be if you want to take a break from the sun and play board games, read a book or watch the surf when you feel you’ve had a bit too much sun but still want to take in all that your destination has to offer.  This also can transform into a little raging party area, the crew are always eager to help set up for a themed dress up party!

Swim platform

The large swim platform at the stern of the vessel makes it extremely easy to access the water if you don’t want to jump off the roof every time you want to go for a swim. The platform is flush with the water level so you can get in and out of the tenders and kayaks easily as well as walk directly onto your stand up paddle board or just slip in for a swim.


Ratu Motu’s hull is single chine mono displacement. The vessel is a twin screw ocean passenger cruising vessel constructed of welded aluminium with a raked stem, full keel, stepped transom stern, raised two deck accommodation with bridge located forward.
