KLM Antares is a splendid Indonesian hand-built traditional wooden boat (Phinisi) constructed in south Sulawesi, Indonesia, where all the master boat building carpenters are found. This superb boat was built and designed by famous French boat builder Mr. Fabien Blot. In total, it took one and half years to build.

There are a total of 3 comfortable cabins on board at the Antares.  All are well appointed suites with queen-size beds that can be converted into 2 individual single beds. The living room/galley and the wide shady deck space can welcome up to 8 passengers.

The Antares is equipped with a seawater desalination system capable of producing fresh water at 3000 liters per day, meaning you wont need to worry about having an extra shower or rinsing the cameras one more time!  There are two OUMA 18kw diesel generators and a solar system on board to provide 24/7 electricity. A brand new compressor gives you the best quality air while you enjoy magnificent diving in Indonesia.
