2019 - GET IN EARLY!!
A BOAT TRIP WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST HOLIDAYS YOU EVER HAD SURFER OR NOT!
Owner operator Mick O'Shea has been the proud owner of Bintang since 2015 when he took over a vessel full of potential. In 2017 Mick and the Bintang sailed to Malaysia where the boat underwent a complete rebuild. Comfort and safety were the main objectives of the rebuild and that is searingly obvious when you first board the Bintang surf charter.
Bintang is a sturdy-sleek stay sail schooner built by 'Classic Yachts' in Perth in 1988. She is 115 feet overall, cruises at 8-10 knots powered by a 8LXB Gardner diesel engine.
Unlike many boats in the Sumatran island chain, the Bintang is all rigged up to make use of consistent winds that blow throughout the year. This ensures you experience what is advertised and makes it arguably the sleekest and most efficient surf charter on the planet.
During the rebuild, more space and comfort has been added and all the beds have been made larger for the comfort of resting up between surfs and always guaranteeing a good nights sleep. The entire boat is air conditioned and the bedrooms have ensuites to ensure comfort for all passengers.
A brand new kitchen has been installed and allows Bintangs master chef Gerry to take his full bag of cooking tricks to the next level. The food is plentiful and delicious on your Bintang surf charter.
The top deck has been modified, making it a lot more practical with a spacious open plan layout. The deck now allows for yoga or sitting back with a bintang watching the sun rise or set.
Bintang has the full array of communication and navigation equipment that extends to the comfort levels guests feel on the boat. Guests can relax, knowing that if something does go wrong, help is a crisp, clear call away.
The 500 square foot salon is also a popular space set up with a state of the art entertainment center, boasting a huge LCD flatscreen TV, DVD, Blu Ray, and surround sound. Making it really easy to sit back and watch the days surfing highlights or just chill out watching a surf movie.
Bintang surf charter has 2x fore cabins with 4 bunks in each with beds 2.2m long and 900mm wide to ensure everyone is in a comfortable bed and not squished in like sardines.
The aft cabin is equipped with 4 single bunks and a king size double, which is usually allocated to the group leader (that's incentive right there).
The boat can accommodate 10 - 14 guests easily with an exclusive charter booking. Individual bookings will be capped at 10.
