The prestigious El Aleph yacht combines traditional gaff rigged phinisi design with up-to-the-minute technology and safety features. This family-friendly, 131-ft liveaboard follows the ancient spice trade routes through the spectacular islands and seascapes of the Indonesian archipelago. She was originally built as a pleasure yacht for her owner and his family so the yacht very much has a family home feel, and now welcomes 10 to 12 guests on a few exclusive charters throughout the year in absolute luxury and privacy.
Life on board
Beautifully handcrafted in century-old teak and ironwood, and immaculately finished by the finest cabinet makers in Bali, with plenty of shelving and storage space throughout, El Aleph yacht charter features a gorgeous below-deck interior with large windows and intricate lattice work. The air-conditioned lounge, library and dining area, with its large table and cushioned bench seating, is fashioned in warm wood and complemented by crisp white fabrics with splashes of bright colors.
There is also a galley-kitchen, where your talented, personal chef will create gourmet Asian-fusion dishes. Kids’ meals and special dietary requirements are catered for, and you are welcome to personalize your food and drink menus. There are technically six cabins, five of which comfortably accommodate up to ten adults, including four ample doubles and a spacious master cabin with its own private terrace on the bridge deck, but there is also an extra smaller cabin (if required) which is best suited for kids, with bunk beds for two. All have ensuite shower rooms and individually controlled air-conditioning.
Outside, a large open deck features an additional dining and lounge area for relaxing alfresco, with plenty of room to spread out. There is also a promenade deck, a sun deck, a forward sun deck, and a large lounge area for reclining on the bowsprit. Onboard facilities include WiFi, TV & DVD, and stereo sound.
With a highly experienced, friendly crew of 12, you can be sure that your every need will be met and exceeded. The team includes a cruise director who can take you to little-explored corners of Indonesia, and a dive master who can set you up with snorkeling gear or top-of-the-line dive equipment including wetsuits, compressor, aluminum dive tanks, NITROX, Poseidon rebreathers, and a helium mixing facility.
For water toys, you have the choice of wakeboards, banana boat, water-skis, four sea kayaks and body boards, plus fishing equipment and two tenders for land excursions, perfect for keeping guests of all ages happily engaged.
Destinations and onshore excursions
You can look forward to a voyage of discovery to exotic regions such as Komodo National Park where you will meet the famous Komodo dragons. In Raja Ampat, you can snorkel and dive through pristine coral gardens, trek through jungle-covered islands and watch the birds of paradise performing their magical dating dances at dawn.
You can relax on remote white sand beaches and explore the clove and nutmeg plantations and historical villages of the Banda Islands where Dutch colonial houses and ancient forts still stand. All along the way you can stop to snorkel in secluded lagoons, dive among shipwrecks and schools of tropical fish, and visit isolated communities where time appears to have stood still for centuries.
Perfect for families and groups of friends, the aim of the El Aleph yacht charter is for you to go where you want to go, when you want to go. Choose from one of the well-outlined itineraries or ask for help in customizing your own adventure of a lifetime.
Suites & Cabins
The spacious 32m² ensuite master cabin is situated above deck on the bridge deck, and looks out over the stern. Surrounded by windows on 3-sides, it is a stunning light-filled space affording incredible views, which get even better when you step out onto its 10m² private terrace. It also has its very own 8m² dressing room, writing desk and plenty of storage space.
The four ensuite guest cabins are situated below deck, so only have porthole windows, but still maintain a roomy feel, with beautiful wooden panelling, and handcrafted drawers and storage. Two of the cabins also feature sitting areas at the foot of the bed.
Sometimes called the 'nanny' cabin, the extra sixth cabin is smaller and narrower than the rest. Located on the lower deck at the bow as the ship's hull narrows, it is still ensuite, but only has space to feature bunk beds, suitable for two children or one adult.
