Jiwa, a classic 23m traditional wooden Phinisi, her twin masts, clean lines and rustic charm provide for a unique way of experiencing the Indonesian Islands: she tends to blend into the environment rather than impose on it.
Jiwa is a solid boat. Built using the finest ironwood with full length beams and double keel, her builder has ensured that as well as looking great Jiwa has been engineered to perform well out at sea. Her 6-cylinder diesel engine pushes her along at a respectable 7.5 knots and if the winds are right, her sails can be set for some classic cruising.
Jiwa is split into 3 levels. The top deck is where the boards are stored, the shaded area is perfect for lounging on day mattresses watching the action in the water. It’s also the prime place to hangout under magical sunsets after celebrating a long day surfing.
The foredeck has a table and further seating under a large canopy. Towards the stern is the open plan saloon, it is huge area with dining table and couches down each side. The saloon
ensures you can always escape from the sun and that everyone can still find space to spread out in less favourable weather.
Below decks, is the A/C sleeping cabin with beds for 10 guests and two bathrooms. The cabin is very roomy and have a TV installed for those wishing to watch movies during the day & video analysis sessions.
We have 2 tenders assisting Jiwa. A 4.2m Rigid Inflatable Boat with 40hp engine which provides for fast transfers to and from the surf and also a 5m boat perfect to fishing trips and for scouting out potential “around the corner”.
