Bintang Surf Charters

Mentawai | Telo | Banyak Surf Charter Boat

Bintang is a sturdy-sleek stay sail schooner built by Classic Yachts in Perth in 1988. Bintang is 115 feet boat, with a beam of 28 feet. Under 165 HP of diesel power she cruises at 8 knots powered by an 8LXB Gardner diesel.

Early 2017 Bintang went under a complete rebuild in Malaysia with new rigging to insure we get the best out of the winds and insure you get the sailing experience we advertise.

The vessel is sleeker, faster and more efficient for any type of surfer on the planet.

More space and comfort has been added and all beds have been made bigger for the comfort of resting up between surfing or fishing and always guaranteeing a good nights sleep on Our boat. The entire boat has been re-airconditioned and all bedrooms are ensuite to ensure the comfort of all our passengers.

A brand new Kitchen has been put in place and is more practical and allows our master chef Gerry to take his full cooking skills to the next level.

The entire top deck has been modified and we have made it a lot more practical for everyone, opening up the front deck and placing a yoga platform on the roof as well as benches to enjoy those magnificent mentawai sunsets from the top of the vessel after surfing.

Bintang has multiple diesel-powered generators electrifying a full array of the best communication and navigation electronics: SSB and VHF radio, radar, GPS echo sounder and position beacon.

That quality extends to the comfort and entertainment of guests as Bintang has a 500 square foot salon equipped with state of the art entertainment center with TV, VCR and digital machines for replaying the surfing recorded that day, and a DVD/CD surround sound system for catching up on all the latest movies and music.

Should anything go wrong, Bintang has AMSA / USCG fire-fighting equipment, a life raft and life jackets for 24 people, and an EPIRB position beacon so the rescuers will know where you are, even if you don’t.

Fully-loaded, Bintang sails with as many as six crew and 14 guests. The crew cabin is in the bow, and there are three guest cabins. 2 x Fore cabins are fully rebuilt with four bunks in each with beds at 2.2m long and 900mm wide to ensure everyone is comfortable whilst resting or asleep. Aft cabin is equipped with four single bunks and a king size double.

We can accommodate 10 to 12 guests with an exclusive charter, individual bookings will be capped at 10 guests.

Meals are usually taken on the aft deck, which accommodates 14 people comfortably.
