Jiwa Alam Boat

The concept of this boat combines comfort, space and simplicity.

When sailing all the year round in coral seas a boat must have a shallow draft, and must be very strong to be able to stand an unscheduled grounding, the shape of the hull must be appropriate also to ground without trouble, Jiwa Alam was made to be able to sail among coral reef so not to miss the most beautiful places and anchorages in Indonesia.
In the tropics the sun is very strong, we have a cover sundeck with panoramic views to enjoy the sunset and chill in the beam bags or watch the stars in the comfortable outdoor beds.

One of the main attractions of sailing is to live in a clean and unpolluted environment, but to keep on schedule with the chart trip, most of the time we cruise with motor.

Noise and exhaust fumes are definitely a form of pollution, Jiwa Alam has its SOLAR POWER SYSTEM which give the guest full electrical power 24 hours on. We also have a noiseless genset to keep the cabins cool at night.
