Description

Boat

Arenui was built in 2007, measuring 43m in length and 9m in width, with average cruising speed at 10 knots per hour. This magnificent Phinisi was crafted from ironwood by over 50 local craftsmen in South Sulawesi, and 70 percent of the wood used to build the Arenui is recycled wood.

Arenui offer guests the chance to step aboard a truly Indonesian experience, to enhance holiday time in this special destination. If you've dreamed of setting sail aboard an old-fashioned pirate ship (but with all mod-cons) then this is for you. If you want to experience the culture and style of the country, as you sail through its beautiful islands, then this if for you.

Arenui features an expansive indoor restaurant and lounge area which takes up the central space on the main deck and reaches across the full width of the vessel. At one end there is a large counter for buffets and snack items, as well as tea and coffee facilities, wine fridges, cold soft drinks and juices. Above the counter are 2 LCD screens for showing movies, slideshows and also displaying dive briefings.

In the centre of the indoor restaurant/lounge, there are some long tables with an open bench on one side, ideal for group of 6 to 8 guests sit together, opposite the long tables, there are two smaller tables, ideal for couples.

At the front of the indoor restaurant/lounge, there are 2 over-sized, curved sofas - one in each corner. With a table in front they are ideal for a group of divers writing up log-books, or a relaxing place for flicking through photos on your laptop, or just a spacious day-bed for reclining with a book or a movie. In addition, there is an iMac workstation (equipped with both windows and mac operating systems and software), 2 charging stations with shelves.

Arenui also has 3 main outdoor areas, including the largest deck you're likely to find on an Indonesian liveaboard:

The outdoor SKY restaurant is located on the upper deck, a perfect place for al fresco meals and watching the changing landscapes. There are 2 large tables in the centre, which can accommodate up to 20 people. As well as two special "double" sun-beds - space enough for 4 guests to sun bathe or just relax. And there is a telescope for those keen on a session of star-gazing.

Behind the SKY restaurant is the SKY lounge, features a wooden bar for drinks, day-beds and benches all fitted with high-quality, thick mattresses (20+ cm) for ultimate comfort. There are spaces open to the elements for the sun-lovers among you but also a large canopy for shade.

The dive deck is in front of the restaurant, on the main deck. As wide as the boat, this area has plenty of space for guests to kit-up together for a dive and also store personal dive equipment. Along the two edges are wooden counters for camera equipment, with drawers below for pelican cases, masks, snorkels, rash-guards, SMBs and other small items, plus 2 rinse tanks. In the centre we have a comfortable sofa bench, which makes the wetsuit dance considerably easier. There is a large area for hanging items to dry - although crew members will wash and hang your wetsuit or rash-guard for you, after every dive. There is also a canopy for shade.
