Phinisi Schooners are wooden two-mast vessels. Traditionally, these schooners are made from tropical “Iron Wood”. The term “Phinisi” technically refers to the rig itself. However, in reality, the word describes the gaff-ketch type of rig. Around Bira, in South Sulawesi, the crafting of Phinisi Schooners has been handed down for countless generations. This ship-building culture originates from a myth based on the creation of the first boat ever built by their ancestors. Mystical beliefs and the mythology surrounding the boat – building still permeate the crafting process. Today, these beautifully handcrafted vessels have blended luxury modern comforts with traditional craftsmanship birthing a truly unique experience. They can be seen sailing around Indonesia and other parts of the world, we would like to welcome you onboard Australia’s first luxury Phinisi voyage.
