The Ombak Putih is a traditional Indonesian schooner custom built from ironwood by Buginese ship builders in Batulicin, Kalimantan. Her keel was laid in 1995, and she became operational in 1997. In early 2015, the Ombak Putih was the subject of a major interior refit. Working with the unique heritage this vessel represents, her transformation is a conservation exercise back to authenticity, using only the best traditional materials, shaped by highly skilled Indonesian craftsmen. Yet, what goes on behind the scenes is the use of the most up-to-date technology and she is now equipped with a super yacht grade AC station and we are optimizing our systems to the latest safety standards.
The Ombak Putih is 42 metres long, and provides accommodation for up to 24 guests in 12 comfortable cabins. With approximately 400 square metres of public space divided over two main decks, the Ombak Putih offers both open and covered space in abundance, allowing for privacy and serene relaxing. All cabins are located below deck and offer private en-suite bathrooms, portholes, individually controlled air conditioning, and ample storage space including safety deposit box.
Led by Captain Feri, his 14 dedicated crewmembers hail from all regions of the archipelago and are here to make your stay with us a remarkable and memorable experience.
Safety and Seaworthiness
Ombak Putih is fitted with all internationally required safety and communication equipment such as SSB and VHF radios, life jackets, life rafts, and satellite telephone. Apart from that we carry an extensive first aid kit, defibrillator (AED) and emergency oxygen supply.
Experienced navigators consider it an axiom that the seaworthiness of a vessel depends on the seaworthiness of the crew. Our ship has a well-seasoned, all-licensed Indonesian crew of twelve, and each one of them goes through multiple first aid trainings per year, and drills are done on a regular basis according to international Marine Safety Codes.
