Rascal is making waves in Indonesia

Explore the Indonesian archipelago in style on board this new luxury superyacht.

Imagine this: You wake up in the morning and you’re greeted by the calming sounds of the sea and a light breeze. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are done al fresco-style. In the day, you can catch some sun on the infinity roof deck, which turns into a moonlit cinema when dusk comes. Sea activities are available all day, with the range of equipment available. And at any time, you can choose to dock at the beautiful beaches of Bali and Lombok, or visit the wildlife wonder on the island of Komodo.

That’s what Rascal will be offering come January 2017.

Offering the well-heeled another way to explore the vast Indonesia archipelago (which spans a whopping 1.9 million sq-km), the 103-ft Rascal is a combination of cutting-edge technology on board the traditional Indonesian Phinisi superyacht. Fitted with five spacious cabins all above water, the bedrooms stretch across two expansive decks, with each cabin boasting high ceilings, breathtaking ocean views, en-suite bathrooms and a private terrace. And indeed, the vessel comes with a 1,280-sq-ft infinity roof deck.

It’s not just about how luxurious Rascal looks; it’s also about what it offers to those who wish to charter it. The hospitality experience on-board boasts experience from renowned names in the Indonesian culinary circle. Dining menus are created by Bali’s famous Watercress restaurant, while cocktails and its in-house Rascal Rum has been crafted by award-winning mixologists from Proof & Company. Of course, the superyacht also comes equipped with sea toys the likes of kayaks, waterskis and wakeboards, as well as snorkelling and diving equipment for guests to explore Indonesia’s best kept underwater secrets. 

Part of its private-charter package, Rascal will tailor-make a bespoke itinerary according to the needs and wants of guests. It could include off-radar destinations such as Sumba and Flores, or private activities including a special dinner party, midnight stargazing on the roof deck, or even a desert island picnic.

With Rascal, no two charters are ever the same. And that’s what we love.
