The laid-back luxury of Dunia Baru’s interior invites you to make yourself comfortable – and it won’t take long before you feel completely at home onboard this luxurious vessel. Dunia Baru’s spacious timber staterooms tempt long, lazy mornings, but you might prefer to choose a book from the yacht’s library and stretch out on the sofas, or order a drink and settle for sunbathing on one of the outdoor lounging decks as you watch the unrivalled scenery pass you by. The lure of the open decks and tropical trade winds really is hard to resist.

The beanbags on the foredeck become a favorite with so many guests, who settle in to watch the dramatic landscape of Indonesia’s islands slip by. By night, these beanbags are fantastic places from which to stargaze but hours before that, the deck’s lounge area will be converted into an al fresco cocktail bar like no other.

The center-point of the superyacht is the eat-in galley, with a center island where many meals are both prepared and enjoyed. On so many charters this becomes the gathering space for friends and families, with a large, more formal seated dining area outside, just beyond the hand-made wooden doors.

The archipelagos through which Dunia Baru sails truly are spectacular and every day offers something new: dramatic mountain peaks that rise from crystal waters; dolphins that swim alongside the bow; secluded coral-fringed coves; bays of water so clear and blue, that they are quite sublime. Whiling away the hours as you sail through these views is something dreams are made of.


From the sunbeds on the open-air aft deck platform to the point of the elegantly sweeping bow, Dunia Baru is yours to wander, barefoot and free-spirited.
“Dunia Baru” means “new world” in Indonesian, and it would be difficult to find a more impressive vessel on which to explore this part of the world. Inspired by traditional phinisi design and built with all the high-tech equipment and systems that you’d expect to find on a typical white superyachts, Dunia Baru’s ultimate charm lies in the fact that she is far more than your typical superyacht.
Superyacht, yes. Sterile white superyacht, no. This is a superyacht with soul. Everything – from the hull to the bar stools to the door hinges – was hand-crafted from wood sourced from Borneo and created by Indonesia’s finest boat builders. While no expense has been spared in ensuring that Dunia Baru is an ultra-luxury vessel, she still feels organic; entirely connected to her surroundings. Dunia Baru simply exudes a sense of adventure and totally lives up to her name; while sailing with her you really do get that feeling that you’re exploring a part of the planet very few people have travelled before. This is pure Indonesian seafaring hospitality raised to a level that has not been seen before.


Dunia Baru is Indonesia’s premier luxury yacht. She boasts six extremely spacious en-suite staterooms, and there is a wonderfully elegant full-beam master-suite on the aft upper-deck, with a large bathroom, and a private day-bed sundeck.
There are ample lounges and outdoor relaxing areas, including a star-gazing foredeck with beanbags, an expansive shaded lounging area (converted to a cocktail lounge at sundown) and an aft poop-deck sunbathing area.


Each stateroom is equipped with an independent air-conditioning system, mood lighting and a 32-inch LED flat-screen TV with DVD and satellite TV. The lounge is equipped with a 60-inch LED TV, Marantz AV system with speakers and subwoofers from Boston Acoustics.
Sonos integrated 14-zone (interior and exterior) music system is set up throughout the ship (operated from a computer server) and there’s touch-screen controlled custom lighting.
