Individual cabin bookings available on 65 metre sailing yacht Lamima
by Malcolm Maclean
Individual cabin bookings are now available on the 65m (213’) wooden sailing yacht Lamima, available for charter in Indonesia’s Komodo islands.
Built in traditional Indonesian style, she has accommodation for 14 guests in seven large staterooms, all with en suite bathrooms.
Lamima’s saloon, a haven of tranquillity and comfort, is situated midship on the main deck. This spacious indoor area is furnished with a bar and lounge as well as a dining alcove designed to comfortably seat fourteen guests.Meanwhile, the upper deck extending forward of the pilothouse, is furnished with Indonesian sun mattresses and dedicated to relaxation.
Deck spaces are vast and have a variety of uses, from sunbathing to relaxation or entertaining and dining under the stars.
Among the 20 dedicated crew are two Balinese masseuses and a yoga instructor to help soothe away any cares and aches. Lamima is also certified as a PADI dive centre and has two dive instructors permanently aboard; the diving in the Komodo area is superb.
Comprising 17,508 islands, the Indonesian archipelago captures the imagination with its mix of exotic cultures and experiences.
Indonesia's eastern islands stretch from the western island of Lombok to Timor in the east. Here the weather is very different to the rest of the country. The climate is drier and more akin to Australia than of tropical Bali. Komodo is one of the islands that compose the Republic of Indonesia. The island is particularly notable as the habitat of the Komodo dragon, the largest lizard on Earth, which is named for the island. Komodo Island has a surface area of 390 square kilometres and a human population of over two thousand.
Individual cabin bookings on Lamima are for a minimum of seven nights until September 2015 and come at a rate starting from $12,600 per week through Camper & Nicholsons.
