Dunia Baru

51m | 7 CABINS | 20 CREW
Dunia Baru pairs the technologies of a modern superyacht with the highest levels of Indonesian master craftsmanship.

The Ironwood Superyacht

Sculpted from precious woods by master shipwrights, Dunia Baru’s sleek yet powerful profile is the embodiment of an Indonesian phinisi. Outfitted with the marine systems of a modern superyacht, she also boasts the highest standards of on board amenities and safety.

This combination of Indonesian sailing tradition with the latest engineering systems, sound and lighting results in a seamless fusion of old and new. For the ultimate family adventures in total comfort, Dunia Baru is the top choice for exploring SE Asia.


Stepping on board, it is clear that Dunia Baru is one of a kind. Whether you are a connoisseur of phinisis, or new to the world of wooden yachts, the level of finishings and detailed craftsmanship on Dunia Baru will simply take your breath away. As the ultimate go anywhere yacht, she is suitable for extended expeditions as well as shorter voyages enjoying the height of hospitality and on board amenities.


The Cabins

Master Suite

The full beam master suite features expansive windows that treat guests to panoramic views from their bed, filling the space with sunlight. The ensuite is large and luxurious, with twin vanities and an oversized shower area. A private, shaded aft deck with daybed allows for quiet moments reading, daydreaming or stargazing. You may even find yourself falling asleep here at night with the cool evening breeze tickling your face and the sound of the sea lapping the hull below. 

Six Deluxe Cabins

Each ensuite cabin is equipped with a Tempur-Pedic double bed, original Indonesian artwork and a state-of-the-art entertainment system. Natural daylight filters through the portholes accentuating the immaculate teak finishes, creating an ambiance of relaxed luxury. All indoor areas are fully air-conditioned with advanced fresh air handling systems ensuring ideal conditions for a good night’s sleep.

Galley and Entertainment

Dunia Baru’s open family-style galley, with a center island and teppanyaki grill, is a unique feature for any yacht. It follows the owner’s desire to bring guests together at meal times, to share stories of the day and plan new adventures. 

By night, the yacht lights up like a jewel on the water, thanks to her carefully planned lighting design and miles of LED strips that accentuate each carefully executed detail and carving. The sound system is crystal clear with nine subwoofers synched over the Sonos wireless platform, perfect for evenings chilling out or dancing under the stars. The engineering systems and onboard amenities create a level of comfort superior to even the highest tiered land-based accommodations.


Dunia Baru’s crew hail from five islands and speak seven regional languages. Three of the engineers have been with Dunia Baru since construction. This crew is inseparable part of what makes a charter on board this yacht so special.

Her chef can cook fragrant and delicious Indonesian dishes but is equally skilled at five-star western cuisine. Guests can dine in at the artfully crafted salon dining table, around the unique teppanyaki grill in the open gourmet galley, or sit outside under the stars on the aft deck.

Her cruise director is a PADI-certified dive instructor and knows these waters and islands like the back of his hand. He is as happy leading dive trips from the yacht’s well-equipped dive centre, as he is taking guests on hikes to the best sunset viewpoints. 

Dunia Baru’s captain’s extensive local knowledge is second-to-none and he is known to hoist the sails whenever possible. It is a beautiful sight seeing Dunia Baru bringing Indonesian nautical traditions back to life, her mighty bark colored sails straining in the wind. 

Underwater Adventures

Dunia Baru is a licensed PADI Dive Center and her cruise director is a PADI-certified dive instructor with years of experience, thousands of dives under his belt and unparalleled knowledge of the best dives sites and marine life. Indonesia is home to some of the most extraordinary coral reefs on this planet and a charter on Dunia Baru is the perfect chance to experience an underwater world teeming with vibrance and life.

If you are not yet a certified diver, Dunia Baru's team look forward to introducing you to an underwater paradise. If you are a seasoned pro, you are guaranteed to be shown some of the most breathtaking, exciting and sometimes challenging dives of your career.


Dunia Baru’s build was an adventure in itself. The ironwood hull was handcrafted by master boat builders on-site in Kalimantan, about a 12-hour drive from the nearest airport. Her owner stayed true to his vision throughout the build process – to create the finest yacht ever built in Indonesia. The results speak for themselves.

As a guest you will feel Dunia Baru’s pioneering spirit and attention to quality running through the yacht and her onboard culture. She is the ultimate vessel for exploring Indonesia and Southeast Asia's hidden gems.

“Dunia Baru itself is the most authentic, handcrafted luxury yacht we have ever had the pleasure of chartering. The food is out of this world, the attention to detail second to none, the facilities on board fit for a 6-star hotel and perhaps most importantly the panache, humour, grace, style and knowledge of the team on board, run by one of the best Captains you can ever imagine, make for an experience with Dunia Baru which will live in the memory for millennia.”

“From the moment that the RIB approached Dunia Baru, the whole family were in awe. This is not just one of the most beautiful vessels in Asian waters, it is also the most attentively cared for. The attention to detail was immediately apparent. I now know that Dunia Baru is presented as if on her maiden voyage, pristine and perfect every time. The pride that the team take in getting every detail, polished and prepared for guests, is a tribute for their love of this yacht that took over seven years to build. Be sure to ask to hear that story. If only every day was a day aboard Dunia Baru.”

“Speaking for all eight of us, we had the most incredible week. We learned to dive while my parents completely unwound, drank lots of the lovely Aussie red you supplied and otherwise sank right into it. The crew are first class. Clive was superb – a real gent whose expertise and guidance we all appreciated. To a man, the crew couldn’t have made us feel more welcome or more at home. We loved learning more about the Learning Centre project. The whole village turned out for our visit, singing and giving us a grand reception. Our kids were running around with the local kids while we all ate together on the beach… amazing stuff. And Raja Ampat… there are no words. Wayag will live long in my memory.”

“I think you have the best yacht in SE Asia. Everything was wonderful and Triton Bay and the surrounding area was breathtakingly beautiful. All crew members were equally amazing although my wife did have a particularly soft spot for ‘Man’!”
