Welcome to Kapal Teman

Teman was launched in June 2017 in South Sulawesi, in the region of Bonto Bahari, Indonesia’s renowned hub for traditional wooden boat building. This boat has been specifically designed  to sail the seas of the Indonesian archipelago. With 5 spacious and comfortable cabins, Teman can host up to 12 guests on board.

She was built using a rich variety of wood species, mainly “iron woods” (Ulin, Nona-lara, Merbau) and teak. Particular care has been taken in selecting, drying and positioning the different types of timbers to capture their natural strength and to highlight the beautiful textures and tones of the different woods during the boat's construction process.

Specializing in diving and adventure cruises, Teman and her crew look forward to welcoming and sharing with you the gems they have discovered during their 20 years of experience sailing across Indonesia.

See you on board soon!
