Maki is a 105ft 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.
They have passed on their skills down generations and are still the highest regarded boat builders in Indonesia today. This beautiful art has its days counted as it is becoming increasingly harder to find Indonesian hardwoods for its construction. As fiberglass and aluminium are becoming the norm, we felt that we had to take the opportunity to bring one of these beauties to North Sumatra and fill it with surfers in the search for empty line ups!
When we found Maki, it was serving as a luxury diving charter boat in the Komodo region for 2 years. We worked hard to 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, an external lounge to hang out and watch the surf, a sun deck with day beds, and 5 cabins - 3 of them being en-suites, and a dedicated large fully enclosed boardroom with enough racks for 50 surfboards to be stored safely.
On top of its magnitude and tradition, Maki has also has all the fun toys: paddleboard, spearfishing guns, board games and, of course, auxiliary dinghies to reach the surf. Food, drinks and barrels are all under our all you can handle policy.
