“Explore in comfort”

The story of Kudanil Explorer begins in the 1970s with one seafarer’s fascination with Indonesian waters, and continues with a working ocean vessel converted into a luxury expedition yacht. Its heavy duty exterior belies the luxurious comfort within, and hints at its former incarnation as safety standby vessel, making it one of the safest ways to explore the region. There’s plenty of space too – all 1,000 sq. m. of it (and three tenders) between a maximum of 16 guests, housed in eight berths with all the modern luxuries you need to explore islands lost in time.

Go off the beaten track
Go off the beaten track
Getting there and discovering it - and keeping some treasures secret - is half the fun and we encourage our guests to also explore some new paths. Given its original use as a true offshore vessel, the Kudanil Explorer is the ideal platform to travel Indonesia by sea and travel to places off the beaten track.
