Not only is Silolonam
( http://www.njcharters.com/charters/motoryachts.php?mode=info&id=535&cat=7&bed ... ) , a 164’ sailing yacht available for crewed yacht charter in Indonesia, built new along the traditional lines of the age old Indonesian Phinisi, the yacht is beautifully decorated throughout with antiques, artifacts, textiles, beadwork, wood carvings, painted panels, statues, and basketry, all gathered from traditional village life, along with extraordinary shells, all gathered from the beaches of this outstanding charter location. With a Masters Degree in Indonesian Textiles, the Owner of Silolona has immersed herself for decades in the culture and artistry of Indonesia traveling through the various villages, all of which is reflected on board. The shells have been picked up through years of visiting the many beaches throughout this charter location. While you may only be able to visit one area on your crewed yacht charter when on board the charter yacht Silolona enjoying a charter cruise in the waters of this vast and exceptional country, spending time on board Silolona will give you a taste of everything that is the fabric of Indonesian life.

Silolona itself is a reflection of Indonesia in the very build as the keel is laid of Iron Wood, an extraordinarily hard wood found and harvested right in Indonesia. Many of the ribs, and structural members of the hull frame were hand cut and shaped by the traditional adze, and these structural members have been left bare and open to the eye to enjoy the warm beauty of traditional craftsmanship while living on board during your crewed yacht charter.

Each of the staterooms and living areas are decorated with artifacts and art from different locations and subcultures within Indonesia providing a snapshot of these areas. The deck areas are also decorated with artifacts from various locations along with local sea shells. The crew re-arranges the décor on deck each day and on the tables for each meal for a constantly changing eye feast. Enjoying bits from various locations in Indonesia on board is just a hint of what can be seen and experienced on future charters. Following are photos captured from our time on board, of the traditional and natural ever changing on board décor of Silolona which is enjoyed on a crewed yacht charter on this modern yet traditional Indonesian Phinisi.
