Diving Indonesia & beyond
Inspired by Tahitian culture, “Vaiatea” means “distance waters.” We find it adequate to express the experience we offer. We created Vaiatea to let you embrace the best of your diving voyage.
Our architect combined Indonesian wooden traditional building art called “Phinisi” with some top modern occidental diving boats.
The dominant structure, crafted from ulinwood by local craftsmen in Kalimantan, needed almost four years of preparation. We have taken some traditional elements of both cultures and recreated them on Vaiatea Phinisi, wonderfully arranged, to give her a unique and amazing atmosphere.
Custom designed to accommodate 12 guests in generous comfort, Vaiatea Liveaboard hosts six cabins with a lofty standard with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioned.
The main lounge is fully air-conditioned, but the nicest experience lets the breeze through with all windows open. On the upper deck, four master cabin offers stunning views.
All areas such as rooms, dining room, deck, and chill spaces have been wonderfully arranged with some top details like the upper deck, with lounge beds or jacuzzi, are the perfect places for enjoying sunsets and cocktails.
As a diving liveaboard, we added a large dive platform at the rear where you will have your own dedicated areas. We have made a photo room for photographers. Vaiatea owns three Bauer compressors included the B-Securus, to monitor moisture saturation in filter cartridges and membrane compressors room fully ventilated far away from the engine room. We obtain the highest certification from Bauer: Pure Air
All the features present onboard promise a wonderful diving experience.
VAIATEA is a traditional and magnificent Phinisi–a revisited mix between a classic Indonesian wooden sailing vessel and a modern cruising boat–set to travel the Indonesian archipelago’s majestic underwater world.
If you want to encounter Indonesia’s culture and style as you sail through its stunning islands, then this is for you. With VAIATEA Liveaboard, we offer you the chance to embark on an Indonesian adventure.
Our major aim in creating the VAIATEA Liveaboard was to provide something unique that promoted all the very best services, safety, and diving knowledge.
It reflects this in both the design and decor of the facilities of the boat.
Besides, we wanted to show our connection to our environment by taking care of the ocean. With this in mind, we use as much recycled and reclaimed material as possible.
We applied long-term vision on all building’s sides to keep the boat in good working condition for many years to come.
