Kim Kardashian and a handful of the Kardashian clan were spotted vacationing on board luxury superyacht Prana in October 2018. Prana is the largest Indonesian phinisi in the world but she's far from traditional. Owned by A-list Ibiza hotel Atzaró, Prana boasts a sumptuous interior with 900 square metres of living space spread across four decks. Kim Kardashian made the most of her time on board cruising through the paradise islands of the Komodo National Park and was pictured leaping from the bow. Charters on board Prana might also involve sun salutations on the rooftop yoga deck, a trip to the on board spa and a movie under the stars. For any fans of the reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Prana makes an appearance in Series 16 Episode 3.
