Maki is a 105tf liveaboard Phinisi built in 2017 in South Sulawesi, Indonesia – a place with a very strong maritime heritage, as far back as the days of spice trading. Known as Bugis, the South Sulawesi people have earned the reputation of best boat builders and sailors in the East Indies. Their talent was recognised by the the Dutch and other colonisers due to their Phinisi boats being much faster in these waters.
When we found Maki, it was serving as a luxury diving charter boat in the Komodo region for 2 years. We convert it to the ultimate surf charter vessel in Mentawai. Aimed to deliver maximum comfort, It has a large living room with 2 dining tables, open plan kitchen and TV, an external lounge to hang out and watch the surf, a sun deck with 8 day beds, and 5 cabins – 3 of them being en-suites.
