Stretching 34m (110ft) long, she was built as a classic Indonesian wooden schooner (Pinisi). With a hull made of solid ironwood and interior walls erected from a mixture of exotic woods, she stands robust with everlasting elegance.

The spacious cabins are outfitted with private bathrooms and individually controlled air conditioning. With water supply from the sea processed by Reverse Osmosis units, we have a steady supply of pure fresh water. Solar heaters will provide warm bathing comforts, while the UV Sterilizer ensures that drinking water is clean and healthy for your consumption.

With comfort in mind, the Putiraja has been designed to accommodate lounging and relaxation of our guests. Whether you want to sunbathe on the upper deck, socialize with other guests on the main deck, browse through fish books and movies in the library, or look over your photos and videos from the day's diving you can do it with comfort. Regardless of the activity, our fully equipped kitchen will provide mouth-watering and highly nutritious food and drinks, combining Indonesian and Western  delicacies.
