Launched in 2014, the Mantamae is a 31-meter Phinisi ironwood schooner. No ordinary luxury yacht, it’s for the spirited few with a song in their heart, a curious mind, and a passion for cruising some of the most extraordinary places on the planet. With its two masts, elegant bowsprit and seven-sail rigging, the Mantamae evokes the romance of a bygone age, where Bugis and Makassan seafarers plied the shallow waters of the ‘East Indies’ on traditional Phinisi vessels laden with valuable spices. 
Mantamae is the essence of a ancient romantic traditions fused with modern design and technology. The keel was sculpted on the beach at Bira from a single rare Ironwood tree found in the jungles of Kalimantan, and shaped following traditional methods of construction as well as mystical rituals handed down through generations. After the hull and super-structure was completed, she was hand-hauled into the water and floated on a high tide, then moved to Bali where master craftsmen fitted it out using the best natural materials – polished Indonesian teakwood for the decks, and interiors richly adorned with fossilized wood and semi-precious stones from Madagascar. Its Italian owner is happy to share this glorious schooner by making it available for exclusive charters when he is not on board.
Welcome aboard
Mantamae accommodates up to 12 guests in a sumptuous master cabin, a deluxe bunk bed cabin, two staterooms – each with individually controlled air-conditioning, comfortable queen-size beds, ample storage space and stunning ensuite bathrooms, and a bunk bed cabins with two beds.
