The Seven Seas is a 45m (LOA), traditionally built Buginese schooner* and has set new standards in Indonesian liveaboard luxury. Custom-designed to accommodate up to 16 guests in spacious comfort over three decks she is perfect for both diving and relaxation. The rooms, main dining room, and deck areas are all wonderfully arranged. The four double & four twin staterooms are finished to a high standard and come with king-size beds in the doubles and large single beds in the twins. The en-suite bathrooms have powerful hot and cold water showers, hot and cold water washbasins, a full-sized WC, and a hairdryer. The main lounge and inside dining areas are fully air-conditioned but all windows can be fully opened to let the breeze through, which is usually the nicest experience. Two double cabins are situated on the upper deck, commanding panoramic views from the windows. A shaded lounging area aft on the upper deck, as well as shaded lounge beds in front of the wheelhouse, are great areas for sunsets and cocktails.
