Sequoia is truly one of the most state-of-the-art yachts sailing the Indonesian Ocean. Her owner spent four years overseeing her bespoke build. The result is a 26m hand-built wooden schooner, custom build to cruise the 18000-island archipelago. By combining timeless craftsmanship with the latest marine technology from the United States, including low-consumption engine, generators and sanitation systems, Sequoia can tiptoe through Indonesia with a minimal carbon footprint. The finest materials promise silent running when under sail. While single use plastics have been eliminated throughout.
Safe and ecologically conscious cruising were watchwords of the owner. Hand-picked navigation, propulsion and guardrail systems raise Sequoia to US Coast Guard safety standards - the only yacht in Indonesian waters with such a rating. She also conforms to EPA Tier 2 and Tier 3 emissions limits. Sequoia layout is based around three sumptuous suites and several lounging decks. Each one is finished in local hardwoods and cool organic fabrics. With a draft of just 2m, rather than 4m for longer vessels, she can reach intimate beaches for volcanic hikes amid tropical rainforest guarded by macaque monkeys and flying foxes.
Her cruising grounds off West Papua, the Molucca and Lesser Sunda Islands comprise the most biodiverse seas on planet earth, also known as the Coral Triangle. Here you find more than 1000 species of marine life cavort around 500 species of coral. Whales sharks are a common sight, manta rays are a daily presence. With her fully equipped PADI dive centre you can dive around the most extraordinary dive sites around the world.
Sequoia’s crew of ten is entirely Indonesian. The cruise manager, butler and dive master have intimate knowledge of every island, sight, or scuba reef. Children are warmly greeted with an extensive treasure chest of low impact toys, including paddleboards, kayaks, snorkels, and games. The chef is particularly adept at sourcing fresh, local ingredients; perfect for alfresco dinners on the Skydeck of otak-otak fish-in-banana-leaf antipasti and prawn sambal mains, not to forget the unbelieve wine cellar onboard stocked with vintages from the Napa Valley and Burgundy.
Every detail of Sequoia is thought of the environment she is sailing in, from the materials she is made of, the Tier 2 and Tier 3 emission limits, and no single plastics.
