AQUA BLU is a long-range explorer yacht offering all-inclusive charters sailing the region’s most prized destinations, including Komodo National Park, Spice Islands, and Raja Ampat on unforgettable 7 and 12 night itineraries.
With a grand legacy as the former British Naval Explorer HMS Beagle and later as the private yacht of a European aristocratic family, AQUA BLU is a compelling maritime statement. A 2019 refurbishment overseen by Dutch yacht design maestro Cor D. Rover brings the vessel to world-class cruising specifications. Guests can expect to embrace a distinguished sense of history and seafaring evolution when they set foot on this one-of-a-kind ship.
Faster, further, greater safety and comfort — AQUA BLU’s naval pedigree makes it the perfect vessel to navigate East Indonesia’s vast seas. Having attained the highest international classifications (RINA, SOLAS, ISM) in safety, the vessel is additionally equipped with Quantum Zero Speed stabilisers for optimal comfort at rest or while sailing.
Each of the 15 individually-designed suites aboard the AQUA BLU is an oasis on the vast East Indonesian seas. Conceptualised with modern luxury and ultimate comfort in mind by renowned Dutch yacht designer Cor D. Rover, these private sanctuaries lend a luxurious sense of home to every journey on board.
