The Shakti is a 32m (105′) wooden sailing yacht based on the traditional Indonesian Phinisi style and constructed in Sulawesi using traditional techniques in 2001. Since its launch it has spent its entire life cruising the waters of the Birds Head Seascape, logging more hours than most other boats in the region which relocate to Komodo or eastern Indonesia during certain times of the year. The Shakti has undergone several refits and rennovations with the most recent being a full removal and replacement of all the cabins in 2016. The new arrangement provides for 6 en-suite air conditioned cabins. The boat features one large dive tender as well as a smaller runabout.
