Adelaar Liveaboard, Indonesia

Adelaar Liveaboard, a century of maritime tradition and service

Adelaar liveaboard is a classic Dutch schooner that was originally built in 1902. It witnessed world history while sailing around the globe. A recent renovation has brought it back to immaculate condition. It now serves as a recreational diving vessel in the Indonesian waters.

The steel hull of SY Adelaar (Dutch for Eagle) has a length of 38- and a width of 5.5 meters. The yacht-like interior is largely made out of rich teak. The ship accommodates 8 guests only. Uniquely we have special provisions to welcome and assist disabled guests. Destinations include Bali, Komodo, and Alor. The length of the scuba diving trips varies from 11 to 12 days for scheduled cruises and a minimum of 6 days for a liveaboard charter.


Adelaar Liveaboard cabins have marble bathrooms with a hot water shower, toilet, and washbasin. All are Individual air-conditioned. A state of the art entertainment system with flat screen tv and other amenities will make you feel at home in your private time. The master cabin (20 sqm) has a queen-size bed and couch that may serve as a single bed.
