Plataran Private Cruises
Luxury on the High Seas
Plataran Private Cruises offer incredible journeys through some of the most extraordinarily beautiful and exotic destinations in all of Indonesia, sailing the seas around Flores and the Komodo Islands, greater Nusa Tenggara Timur, Menjangan Island and the Bali Straits, and Thousand Islands in Jakarta Bay.
Established in 2012 by Yozua Makes, Plataran Private Cruises was inspired by its founder’s own appreciation of Indonesian maritime heritage. Today, Plataran Private Cruises operates a fleet of phinisi ships, yachts, and speed boats out of its bases at Plataran Komodo in Labuan Bajo, NTT; and Plataran Menjangan, West Bali National Park – each Plataran port with its own private jetty and logistics facilities. The experienced sailing crews of Plataran Private Cruises are the proud descendants of nautical ancestors in NTT, Sulawesi, Java, and Moluccas.
At the heart of Plataran Private Cruises is a desire to sail, but also to represent and preserve Indonesia’s maritime traditions, thereby showcasing the beauty of Indonesian waters to both local and international tourists. Visitors discover truly unforgettable sailing experiences; as a result, Plataran Private Cruises has received various national and international awards, demonstrating its credentials as a unique sailing experience.
Plataran sailing is a true experience of man’s relationship with the sea,
filled with memories on the journey of a lifetime.
