Boat Description

Raja Laut means King of the Sea and at 31 metres long, the 'schooner style' yacht, Emperor Raja Laut, is exactly that. Made of tropical hardwood, this regal boat caters to 12 guests within 6 cabins, 3 double-berth cabins and 3 twin-berth. All cabins are equipped with ensuite, mini-safe, and AC. A spacious lounge area, fully air-conditioned with a 49 HD flat screen, movie, music and book library, and board games is available onboard. The stunning teak deck has plenty of room for sunbathing while fantastic Western and Indonesian cuisine is served al-fresco. For 7 and 9 nights, divers can tour the impressive diversity of Raja Ampat. Visiting the North and Central section as well as sites only visited by liveaboards in the South, divers can expect sharks, dolphins, manta rays and dugong. August to September journey to Komodo for 4 to 9 nights while 7 nights sailing across the Banda Sea and divers may witness hammerheads. To find macro creatures, like frogfish, sail from Maumere to Ambon.
