The boat is yours and yours alone with accommodations for a total of three adults or two adults with two small children.

If you’re looking for a solo getaway from the world, this boat is just perfect.

Social areas

Above deck, two large lounging areas are provided for you to relax or sunbathe, while enjoying the open sea breeze and the astonishing vistas of the natural landscape passing by. A canopy covers part of the deck ensuring shelter and shade from the tropical sun.

Tables, as well as a communal bathroom, are found below the deck. The five-star hospitality ensures that you are provided with extra comforts and attentive services from the onboard crew.

Immerse yourself in the Komodo National Park from an intimate perspective, cruising through a panorama of islands and encountering new wonders on a daily basis. A range of activities is available to satisfy all ages while exploring the spectacular scenery. Hike at sunrise or sunset to jaw-dropping viewpoints. Explore the islands and meet the sea gypsies on a trip to a local Bajo stilted village.

Take the stand-up paddleboard and go bird watching. Encounter the famous Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. Discover the deserted beaches and relish a private sunset picnic on the sand. Be awed by the sight of thousands of flying foxes that commute at dusk in search of food. Discover vibrant reefs of soft and hard corals and come face to face with colorful fish, turtles, and giant manta rays.

The very able crew will ensure that you are well-looked after, not only on board and on land, but also on and under the water. The Ikan Terbang Yacht Charter is the perfect customized private adventure for small groups seeking to explore an incredible diversity of nature, wildlife and scenery.
