Sail on board of Sibon Jaya, a luxurious yacht with 4 private suites, that offers the comfort of a 5-star hotel. Sibon Jaya will take you to the best surf spots in Mentawai, privately only for your group. Experience 13 days of private surf in the remote islands of Sumatra, Indonesia!
You will be staying aboard Sibon Charters, Jaya. Sibon Jaya is a 70-feet Aluminum Power Catamaran built in 2015 especially for boat trips in Indonesia. The boat was designed by the Australian legend Robert Wilson, who came for the first time in Indonesia in 1974. As his seventh boat, Robert brought to Sibon Jaya all the experience he had in the last decades, combining speed, comfort, safety, and many luxury details to deliver the best and most comfortable surf experience anyone could have on the Mentawai.
The boat has Twin Cummins QSB 6.7 engines, delivering speed up to 13 knots. The boats two Onan 13.5 kilovolt-amps generators are totally silent (you won’t listen to them anytime). It has 10 tons of fuel capacity, 6 tons of water capacity, and a water maker that can make 400 liters per hour.
Sibon Jaya has also four solar panels to ensure your hot shower on all four suite’s bathrooms and all the technology needed to keep you safe! They are so keen to give you the safety that all the engine rooms are equipped with security cameras which allows the mechanical engineer to check the engine room 24 hours a day.
The luxury begins inside the dining room ends in the suites. All rooms are equipped with 220-Volt plugs around all beds, reading lights, and luxury linens. They ensure you will feel like on a five-stars bed. All doors and walls are sound insulated from the engine room noise and you also won’t hear the water hitting outside the hull when anchored.
All bathrooms have hot showers and Japanese bidet systems on all toilets. On the upper deck, rear, you will enjoy a large area with many sofas and a lot of space to rest and lay down watching the waves and sunset. To not compromise the guest’s comfort, all the indoor spaces are air-conditioned. The boat is equipped with a sound system and a spacious dining room with TV LCD 42 inch and a DVD player. It also has also one more big bathroom outside and the guests are welcome to use anytime the complimentary outdoor entertainment equipment (fishing gear, two kayaks, snorkels, and stand up paddle).
One of the biggest concerns of Sibon Company is the hygiene and organization of the boat. Every day, after you leave the boat and go surf, Sibon Charters will make the room service, including organizing and cleaning all your room and bathroom. Sibon Charters value the perfect cleaning of every ambient.
Sibon Jaya departs from Padang harbor on Sumatra Islands. As soon as you arrive at the airport, you don't have to worry about anything else. A member of Sibon Charters team will be waiting for you and your friends on the arrival, forwarding your luggage and board bags to the harbor in a special big vehicle.
Passengers will be transferred on an air-conditioned and comfortable van. Don't forget your International Certificate of Vaccination against Yellow Fever (ICV), which is mandatory in Indonesia (if you come from a high-risk country). If your flight arrives too early before the boat departure, the team will take you to Bonsai Surf Lodge, another partner of Sibon Charters that is ready to accommodate you as long as necessary, with no additional cost. The lodge offers restaurant service and free use of pool and internet access.
Sibon's crew is formed by six people. The captain has an amazing experience and knowledge of all the spots on the north of Indonesia. The chef, who is working with Sibon Charters since 2012, has a long experience of years cooking on many other charter boats. He has magic hands and makes gourmet and unforgettable meals.
The mechanic engineer is very experienced and worked for many years in many other boats as well on the islands and has a deep
and specific knowledge of Sibon's engines and machines. The crew also has two more deckhands. One of them is in charge of the daily cleaning and room service and the other one is all day long ready to take guests to the waves and beaches with the dingy (assistant boat).
Sibon Jaya also has a photographer and videomaker, extremely competent and dedicated, ready all day to register all those special moments of the trip. He is compromised to take pictures of surf sessions, from inside the water, from the dingy or from the land, as well as register many lifestyle moments of the guests.
Besides that, he is your surf guide, he knows the Mentawai really well and by analyzing the weekly swell and considering the guest’s preferences will guide the boat to the best wave of the day. The main goal is to surf perfect waves with no crowd! That’s the Sibon Charters' daily mission.
The photos and videos package is optional and paid directly to the photographer on the boat at the end of the trip. It's important to bring a pen drive of at least 8 GB or an external HD, so you can save your images with safety.
Sibon Charters has onboard snorkel masks and fins. But keep in mind that around 20 different people per month use the same equipment daily. Maybe it will not be in the same conditions as your personal equipment that you use twice a year. Or could happen that the whole group wants to snorkel at the same time and maybe Sibon Charter won’t have enough equipment for the entire group. For that reason, if snorkeling is on your priority list, feel free to bring your personal equipment. They bet you won’t regret it!
This surf trip will take place in Mentawai Islands, Indonesia.
