Aqua Blu 60m | 15 CABINS | 30 CREW

The 60-meter Aqua Blu, Indonesia’s first long-range ocean explorer yacht, was originally built in 1968. After extensive refurbishments in 2017, it was relaunched in Indonesia as a modern expedition vessel with a rich history as the former HMS Beagle and a European aristocratic family’s private yacht in 2019. She embodies a graceful blend of her esteemed naval legacy and elegant contemporary styling.

The stylish 15-suite Aqua Blu vessel offers an elevated cruise experience in the pristine East Indonesia archipelago. With top safety ratings and a Quantum Zero Speed stabiliser for added comfort, it is well-suited for navigating the vast seas of Indonesia.

A team of 30 crew members, including a cruise director, guides, and dive instructor, caters to guests aboard this four-deck long-range explorer. The vessel is available for both cabin cruises and full charters, offering exciting 7- to 21-night itineraries in Raja Ampat, Komodo National Park, and the Spice Islands.
