Untold hours were spent on the yachts beautiful looks, but the owners made safety the top priority. The engines, machinery and other technical parts are all top-of-the-range and sourced from Miami, chosen only after they spent an entire year visiting suppliers. Sequoia is also built to the rigorous US Coast Guard Safety Standards, which makes it unique among yachts in Indonesia.
The yacht will next set sail in September 2018, after adding a third cabin.

Our favourite rooms
Sequoia is only available for exclusive charters, so it really comes down to who gets which room. Both are clad in teak, have ensuite bathrooms with Caesarstone sinks and are decked with Indonesian-themed artwork. The master bedroom has twin sinks and a slightly larger bathroom area; the guest cabin can be set up as twins, making it ideal for little Smiths.
There’s no pool onboard, but you hardly need one when you’re surrounded by glittering ocean on all sides.
There’s a dedicated masseur onboard, ready to work their magic at a time and place of your choosing: on deck, beneath the palms on a nearby beach, you name it.
The yacht lends itself to an active lifestyle, so you’ll need light, casual gear that you can hike, paddle and wade in.
The cabins are reached by spiral staircases, so the boat’s not suited to wheelchair users.
All ages are welcome onboard. There’s plenty to keep little Smiths occupied, including diving; snorkelling; paddle boarding; kayaking; tubing and more. The chef will happily customise meals to suit picky eaters.
Designed to have a minimal impact on the environment, Sequoia has low-emission engines; a water filtration system that turns seawater into drinking water; and eco-friendly bath products on board. Most of the ingredients used in the food are organic, seasonal and locally-sourced.
