Inspired by the design of traditional Indonesian fishing boats (lambo rig), Zirbad was built in Sulawesi and launched in 2010. Made of tropical wood, this beautiful 18 meters vessel is light and fast. Her shallow draught allows her to get very close to shore.

She’s a pleasant boat, devoted to adventures and adventurers. She has already sailed most of Indonesian seas. The English speaking crew on board is always seeking for new amazing sites on land and at sea.


The shared cabin sleeps 6 people (2 double beds and 2 single beds) has a roof which afford guests a view on the stars. The fore and aft living spaces are great areas to chill out while enjoying the ocean. There is a detached galley, shared WC and shower.
