OUR BOAT

MSY ILIKE is an Indonesian traditional Phinisi, built in Bira, a famous boat building village in South Sulawesi. It combines the luxury of a traditional sailing boat with the comfort of a modern yacht. In 2016, she was converted to a diving liveaboard, catering all the needs of the modern and demanding Scuba Diver. The yacht is powered by 2 x 320HP marine engines, allowing us to cruise at an average speed of 7 knots across Indonesia. As a guest on board of this charming vessel, we guarantee you a unique liveaboard and spectacular diving in the rich waters of Indonesia.

Linen is changed mid week.

AMENITIES

Indonesian and International meals will be served in the spacious Saloon with open kitchen, or in the outdoor sitting area at the stern of the boat, well protected from the wind while sailing.

The comfortable Dive Deck on the front of the boat is one of the most spacious on any Indonesian liveaboard. As a Diver you can choose to dive on Air or Nitrox from our membrane Nitrox compressor.
