In spring, summer and fall, Silolona, 167′ Phinisi sailing yacht, and also soon the “sistership” sail the waters of Indonesia. There are thousands of itineraries in this expansive bit of water, each a fascinating area to explore. Following are just a few of the varied areas in Indonesia where Silolona cruises on charter:
Banda Islands: Home of the nutmeg and the Dutch East Indies Trading Company, revisit an exciting bit of history cruising through the Banda Islands in the Banda Sea

Komodo Archipelago: As a mostly a preserved national park, this string of islands are the only known home worldwide of the infamous Komodo Dragon, a 9 foot long lizard considered a possible remnant of Prehistoric times.
East Flores Archipelago: Sailing through slumbering or not so slumbering volcanoes in this beautiful area; visit villages where the women weave the Ikat Textiles and watch how this fascinating textile is woven, picking up a few originals, of course, to bring home right from the source.
