Adelaar’s On-Board Facilities

Moreover, on the same level as the cabins, you’ll find a cozy lounging area, complimented by a bar, as well as two work stations.  On the main deck, there is a sizable lounge and dining area.

Outdoor, you will find plenty of space for every guest to have a sense of privacy. Either for sun lounging, reading, admiring the view or enjoying a meal outside, there’s plenty of room and seating space.

Finally, on the aft deck, there is an additional bathroom which is much welcome when getting back on the ship from a scuba diving session.

Vessel Layout

Divers will notice how the high ceilings are complimenting the beauty of the interior and adding a feeling of freedom. Lavishly furnished, this luxury dive boat is boasting plenty of space and yet creating a warm atmosphere. The large windows are adding to the aforementioned sense of freedom as you can peek at the beautiful view at all times while the Adelaar cruises thought the archipelago.

If we compare a boat like the Adelaar with fellow indonesian liveaboard, such as the Tiger Blue or La Galigo, it’s easy to notice it’s big plus: it’s spacious! The Adelaar welcomes a maximum of 8 divers in 4 cabins with a length of 39 meters. Now, the La Galigo welcomes up to 14 divers in 7 cabins with a length of only 33 meters. The two boats offer similarly priced dive cruises.

All the latest navigation and safety features are found on-board as well as a NITROX system and Nautilus lifeline.

The scuba diving operation is conducted from the dinghies. Indeed, the Adelaar is assisted by two aluminum dinghies with 40 HP outboard motors.  Finally, with a crew of 10, including 1 professional diver, you will always be assisted and thus, have a great scuba diving experience!

One Liveaboard feedback for “SY Adelaar

  1. Genuine experience on the Adelaar liveaboard!
    We spent 10 nights on-board this vessel and everything was great. The operation is running smooth, very enjoyable. The crew is great… always nice and professional but also participating in the cruise’s great atmosphere. The food served to us was delicious… even exquisite. Bar service is a great addition to have.

    We were lucky to have great weather and made amazing underwater encounters.
    We had a great time… everything is spacious and cozy! Will try hard to come back! Jane & Henri
