If you want to save a few dollars, feel more comfortable and cooler touring in a locally-made boat, and have a larger group, then the Melaluca yacht is the way to go. Eighty feet long and built in Sibolga, North Sumatra in 2007, Melaluca is a custom-built surf explorer framed around the keel and bones of a traditional Indonesian cargo boat. The Melaluca is traditional from the outside, but on the inside there are more electronic navigational and safety gizmos than a nuclear submarine!
The Melaluca can accommodate up to 12 stoked guests and a guide in two, three-person cabins, three two-person cabins and one surf guide cabin. All sleeping areas are individually air conditioned and designed for a good night sleep between surf sessions!
Guest amenities include an A/C lounge room complete with a flat screen television, DVD player to watch surf videos to get pumped up before your next session and a rocking sound system. There is also an open party deck space up top with full surround sound system. So party, do yoga, or just chill out and have a brew on the deck after a long session!
The Melaluca is custom designed for surf trips by experienced surfers, with all the comforts and amenities you have at home, including an air-conditioned living and dining room allowing guests to rest and relax in between sessions on the reefs. The extra large outside living/ observation areas make the Melaluca feel much larger than other surf charter yachts. If you want the most comfortable, spacious, state of the art, surfer-designed Indonesian-style yacht for your Mentawais surf trip, the Melaluca is for you! So what are you waiting for go here and book now!
