DUNIA BARU: The Yacht Charter of a Lifetime

Immerse yourself in a week of unique experiences filled with adventure, fun and memorable moments onboard a luxury yacht in one of the world’s most exciting destinations, Bali.

Look no further as Engel & Völkers Yachting has prepared the perfect charter itineraries for you.

The Engel & Völkers Yachting Charter Experience

Our senior Charter Broker, Nickie Vincent, personally experienced a week-long charter onboard Dunia Baru this year. This stunning sailing yacht offered her a truly unique experience. Here is what she has to say about this traditional yet luxurious 51-meter sailing yacht:

 “My familiarization cruise on Duna Bariu was one of my best experiences in my 30 years as a charter broker. The yacht is built in the traditional “Phinisi” style and has taken over five years to build as it was completely handcrafted from teak wood from Borneo. Dunia Baru is a sailing yacht but with the large volume and stability of a motor-sailor. It is typical traditional Indonesian elegance and the interior is romantic and truly beautiful with its wood carvings and spacious living areas.”

Everyone is unique, and therefore no charter itinerary is planned the same. Depending on the length of the charter and whether you travel with friends or family, Engel & Völkers Yachting will plan the perfect itinerary tailored to you.

For Dunia Baru, we have suggested four different spectacular itineraries:

  • 8-days charter Bali – Komodo
  • 6-days charter Komodo – Bali
  • 7-days charter Raja Ampat
  • 7-days surf Sumbawa & Lombok

Our charter broker Nickie was lucky to experience the Komodo-Bali charter.

“The itinerary and cruising grounds are perfect for many different aspects.  Be you an avid diver, snorkeler or discoverer, there is never a dull moment; From swimming with Manta rays, dolphins and a myriad of colourful fish around the pristine coral beds, to hiking and observing Komodo dragons. Or simply relax with a fresh cocktail or delicious tropical smoothie looking out to sea and watching the spectacular volcanic islands pass by…. not to mention dancing on the aft deck after a delicious alfresco dinner. I would recommend both the yacht and the destination to all my clients; an experience you will never forget!”


Thanks to the warm décor and large interior and outdoor spaces for true relaxation and entertainment, Dunia Baru makes her guests feel completely at home.

Dunia Baru accommodates 14 guests in six cabins and one full-beam master suite with a 190° panoramic view. The guest suites are designed for comfort with a lot of natural light coming in through the large windows. This gives her a relaxed feel but with all the amenities of a luxurious superyacht.

In addition, there is plenty of space to be found onboard that truly makes her ideal for a large group charter. The center-point is the open galley where meals are both prepared and enjoyed. This is the perfect place for friends and families to gather after a long-day full of fun activities.

For guests who like to relax onboard during the day, there is ample opportunity to sunbathe on the deck, read a book from the yacht’s library or to relax on one of the beanbags on the foredeck. For families with children, they have made sure that there are plenty of games available to play with. The friendly crew is also exceptionally good with children, ensuring that they enjoy themselves to the fullest.

For guests who like a little more entertainment, the deck’s lounge converts into a cocktail bar at night, offering the perfect setting to enjoy a drink with friends underneath the stars and feel the cool breeze of the Indian Ocean.

Islands and Itineraries

Indonesia is a must-see destination, with its many islands and one of the most diverse marine ecosystems on the planet. Indonesia is also known for its mesmerizing landscapes, rich culture and local hospitality.

Charter in Bali

Probably one of Indonesia’s best-known islands is Bali, also known as “the island of the Gods”.  According to traditional Hindu belief, the gods reside on Mount Agung which is said to be the holiest peak on the island.

Charter in Komodo

Komodo Island is the best place to enjoy plenty of outdoor activities. Relax on the private beaches or hike through the beautiful valleys and waterfalls. The island is also the perfect place to go diving and snorkeling, as Komodo is known for its rich marine life offering more than 1,000 fish species and 260 types of coral.

And to top it all, we recommend that you visit the Komodo National Park and search for the Komodo Dragons, three-meter long lizards that are descendants from the ancient dinosaurs.

Charter in Raja Ampa

Raja Ampat is often described as the most extraordinary marine habitat on the planet due to its crystal turquoise waters created by a collision between the Pacific currents and the Indian Ocean. Dunia Baru’s very own dive master happens to be an expert when it comes to these waters and will guide you through all the secret reefs and channels. Swim with everything from seahorses to manta rays!


Best surfing destination for your yacht charter

When you opt for the surfing charter, you will sail through the islands of West Sumbawa and East Lombok. A surfer’s dream as you will find challenging waves, but the islands have remained authentic and not overly crowded in comparison to other touristic destinations.  August is the best period to surf in this area thanks to the southwest swell.

Dunia Baru's Raja Ampat Learning Project

As a way to give back to the community, Dunia Baru supports a charity project called “The Raja Ampat Learning Centre” in one of its favorite cruising grounds; Raja Ampat. This project will see Dunia Baru build a new library and eco-education centre in the remote village of Sawandarek, in collaboration with the regional government. The goal is to create a space for education and community that incorporates local materials and sustainable solutions and where locals can learn other skills that will strengthen tourism. If you want to learn more about the Raja Ampat charity project, have a look at their website.
