Dunia Baru

Raja Ampat, Indonesia

A refurbishment of a 51m two-masted luxury yacht handcrafted in the classic architecture of a Phinisi wooden sailboat. 

 

Built of teak and ulin ironwood, the Dunia Baru features seven en-suite cabins accommodating 14 guests.

 

Rather than make significant structural alterations, the design objective was to create a luxurious experience that evokes a sense of nostalgia and to create an understated yet modern elegance throughout.

 

The deck areas are enhanced with comfortable and intimate outdoor seating and lounging areas. The spaces are layered with luxurious yet subtle soft furnishings, including hand-knotted natural fibre floor rugs and headboards upholstered in luxurious Belgian fabric, were used throughout. Marine finishes and fabrics, in a neutral and light colour palette, are used throughout. 

 

Accessories are neutral, with a hint of ethnicity coming through in the patterns and textures. A blend of custom-designed and locally sourced items  – such as hand-hammered metal vases and bespoke bronze decorative artwork – complement the hand-carved ironwood joinery. Rare antique baskets and ceramics are on display in the yacht’s saloon area.

 

The interior design is a subtle and sophisticated enhancement of an already beautiful ship. The spaces are personal, creating an authentic and intimate experience for the guests.
