Yacht Sourcing Launches Prana, a 55-Metre Wooden phinisi yacht in Indonesia
Commissioned by the Ibiza-based boutique hotel brand Atzaro, Prana was expertly hand-crafted in Bira, Sulawesi over a 21 months period
(BALI, INDONESIA — 17 July 2018) — The ancient boat-building traditions of the seafaring Bugis tribe inspired the design of Prana, Yacht Sourcing’s masterpiece of ironwood and teak. Constructed using time-honoured techniques, the two-masted phinisi yacht took 21 months to complete, from the laying of the keel, hull and bulkheads to finishing the superstructure, decks and soft furnishing.
Launched earlier this month, Prana boasts nine spacious unsuited cabins over four decks, a yoga terrace, numerous indoor and outdoor living and dining spaces, a dedicated spa, a water sports platform and a cinema under the stars. Prana was on her maiden voyage from Bali to Labuan Bajo in Flores and is now available for sailing, diving or retreat charters through Indonesia’s exotic Eastern destinations, including Komodo National Park, the Banda Islands and Raja Ampat.
