OUR STORY

On one night in 2018, Restu Maya Sari stood on the stern of a traditional wooden phinisi boat, in a Komodo Islands trip. She realised that the whole experience transpire to be much more than a cruise ship diary, it was a combination of heart warming people, an authentic “soul enriching” local culture, gorgeous shores with picturesque islands; homes of the great Komodo dragons.

Since that, she had this insisting dream to manifest her quest to honor Indonesia’s age-old seafaring ways and promote the marine diversity of the archipelago to the rest of the world with her own traditional wooden phinisi vessel.

As people said “you will when you believe”; Restu proceeded to spend time sketching plans of “Gammara”, a name that she chose for the boat that had relentlessly invaded her thoughts. In local language, Gammara means beautiful.

 

Despite many offers of financial backing from interested investors, she was wary of joining forces with someone who did not fully understand her passion.

As it so happened, the right person was there all along, a close French/Italian friend with a great mix of strong hospitality background, rich with independent business expertise, someone who dare to challenge himself in disruptive ideas, and at the same time had a deep heart bond with this archipelago.

A door led to another, every aspect of this once seemingly far-fetched plan then started to fall into place as if it was simply meant to be. A chance meeting with a master boat builder and the opportunity to purchase sustainable sourced wood took things to the next level.

“LIFE INSPIRES US IN UNPREDICTABLE WAYS … LIKE WHEN THE EASTERN OCEAN WHISPERED A DREAM THAT I COULD NOT REFUSED.”
