The Ship

Sailing Motor Yacht Ondina

Sailing a Phinisi schooner  through the inner seas of Indonesia is an amazing, romantic, adventurous and unique experience and exploring this incredible underwater world with the SMY Ondina just makes it unforgetable.

Since July 2001 we are offering a different and romantic way to enjoy adventure and exploratory diving in the Inner Seas of Indonesia, with many scarcely explore areas yet, aboard a classical wooden buginese schooner entirely built with teak and tropical woods. (That we help to replant afterwards!)
