Thirty years ago, SeaTrek Sailing Adventures pioneered its small vessel cruise operations in Bali, with a vision to provide personalized sea voyages to special destinations and places of astonishing beauty that seem locked in time. With more than a quarter century of adventure sailing, Sea Trek has been opening the Eastern regions of Indonesia to whole generations of travelers from across the globe.
The Katharina (above) is a traditional Indonesian “Phinisi” built in 1995 in Kalimantan using the best grades of iron wood . Her slim hull was originally being planned for commercial sailing before we spotted her in the making and fitted her as a cruising vessel. Not only is the Katharina very elegant on the water, she is also fast becoming a classic yacht as very few of these original designs remain.
