The Ultimate Luxury Liveabord Diving Adventure, The Dewi Nusantara team has long been at the very forefront of the dive and cruise liveaboard industry in this fascinating area of Asia. After 16 years of continuous operations, our experience in the dazzling waters of the Indonesian archipelago is unparalleled.
Dewi Nusantara is a three masted wooden schooner with a design that harks back to the classic days of sail, the latter part of the 1800’s. To set Dewi apart from all the other vessels operating in Indonesian waters and also for the practicalities of our operation, we have drawn our design inspiration from the stylish European and American schooners and cutters of that elegant period. These remarkable state of the art vessels would sail across the Atlantic trade routes at record breaking speed for the time ferrying goods and passengers between Europe and the USA. Dewi Nusantara has been constructed as a faithful replica but with all the comforts of the 21st century.
