Master Liveaboards Announces New Boat for Indonesia: Indo Master
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, February 29, 2024 @ 10:00 PM (EST)

Master Liveaboards have announced the addition of a new vessel to its extensive fleet—the Indo Master. The traditional pinisi-style liveaboard, built from teak and ironwood, was launched in 2022, so she is the very definition of a modern Indonesian pinisi. The news comes after the operator added three liveaboards at the end of last year—the Palau Siren, the Bahamas Master, and the Solomons Master.

The new boat offers nine cabins for a maximum of 18 guests. Below decks there are four traditional “Classic” cabins, with a choice of twin or double layouts. There is also a larger “Premium” cabin with two double beds for those who prefer to spread out on their trips. Moving above, there are two “Premium” twin cabins with ocean views and Juliette balconies. Finally, there are two “Superior” double cabins that come complete with their own private exterior balconies. All cabins come with their own individual air conditioning and private en-suite bathrooms.

On the main deck, there is a spacious bar, restaurant, and lounge area, commanding sunny ocean views. There’s also a spacious dive deck and, towards the bow, a shaded outdoor lounge area. Finally, up top, there is a huge sun deck, complete with comfortable seating for those between dive snoozes.

Indo Master will offer a series of itineraries from 7 to 13 nights in Komodo, Raja Ampat, and almost everything in between, showcasing the best Indonesia has to offer. Master Liveaboards are now taking bookings and have a series of launch offers that you can book with secure payment options. Check out the offers page on their website for more details.
