Carpe Diem Phinisi is a 34 meter two-masted yacht, built in 2014 by Bugis craftsmen in the traditional phinisi style, using the finest teak and ironwood.

The yacht underwent a major enhancement in 2017 to make her suitable for full time diving operations and liveaboard trips under the watchful eye of her new owners, who are both passionate divers.

Air-conditioned, en-suite cabins

Carpe Diem features four air-conditioned en-suite cabins, each one finished in warm teak and solid wood panelling, accommodating between seven to ten guests on board depending on group composition. 

On the main deck there is a double master cabin (Pala) with large windows on three sides and panoramic views, a separate shower and bathroom and plenty of storage space. Below deck, there is one twin/double en-suite cabin (Cengkeh) and two triple en-suite cabins (Kayu Manis and Pandan), each featuring a double and a single bed.

All cabins have individually controlled air conditioning units, private bathrooms, ample storage space and are fitted with several power outlets (220v). 

Al fresco dining with endless ocean views

Inside, a cosy saloon with a 10-seater dining table, an adjoined galley, and a fully-stocked library.  On the large main deck, guests can dine al fresco with the dining space also doubling up as a casual area for relaxation and dive briefings etc. with unrestricted sea views.

Yoga and relaxation on the upper deck

On the upper deck, you will find a huge relaxation zone fitted with sun loungers and beanbags, and a spacious shaded area for relaxation or yoga. The foredeck houses a dive station, tanks and compressor.  

Kayaking and paddleboarding

Carpe Diem is also equipped with two kayaks and two paddleboards for guest use and a specially designed dive tender capable of carrying up to 10 divers plus two crew members to ensure ease and safety during diving.

Family friendly

The Carpe Diem Phinisi crew love having children on board and more importantly, children love sailing holidays, and a cruise aboard the Carpe Diem is an amazing way to spend quality time with your kids. With stunning islands providing the backdrop, children will have the adventure of a lifetime just being on and around a "pirate ship".

Children love everything that the Carpe Diem has to offer from kayaking and fishing to swimming, snorkelling, and hoisting the sails. They also love helping the crew, steering the boat and jumping into the sea from the rigging! 

Delicious Asian and Western food cooked fresh

The chef prepares both Asian and Western food, using the freshest ingredients and in creative and appetising menus, full of variety and flavor. Afternoon snacks, cakes, fruits and small bites are available the all day. Drinking water, tea, coffee and non-alcoholic soft drinks and juices are available at any time. 

Dietary requirements can be catered for, but please give plenty of notice. The Carpe Diem Phinisi operates from relatively remote areas so it isn’t always possible to get specific ingredients, but they'll always try to do the best to accommodate.
