Teman is a wooden liveaboard designed to sail the Indonesian archipelago, with 5 cabins for up to 12 guests. Built using a variety of wood species, it offers comfortable and spacious living and lounge areas, as well as essential safety equipment. Specializing in diving and adventure cruises, the crew has 20 years of experience sailing across Indonesia.
Teman was launched in June 2017. It was in the region of Bonto Bahari South Sulawesi. Indonesia’s renowned hub for traditional wooden boat building. This boat has been specifically designed to sail the seas of the Indonesian archipelago. With 5 spacious and comfortable cabins, Teman can host up to 12 guests on board.
It was built using a rich variety of wood species, mainly “iron woods” (Ulin, Nona-lara, Merbau) and teak. Particular care has been taken in selecting, drying and positioning the different types of timbers to capture their natural strength and to highlight the beautiful textures and tones of the different woods during the boat’s construction process.
Specializing in diving and adventure cruises, Teman and it’s crew look forward to welcoming and sharing with you the gems they have discovered during their 20 years of experience sailing across Indonesia.
See you on board soon!
