Lady Denok

This 7-cabin schooner takes divers to some of the most pristine and exciting destinations on earth.

Overview

Lady Denok is an elegant phinisi schooner. She was custom crafted by the world-renowned master boat builders of Tana Beru in South Sulawesi and launched in 2016. Accommodating up to 12 guests, this classic liveaboard takes divers to some of the most pristine and exciting destinations in Indonesia.

In the evenings, relax with a drink on one of the sun decks.
