Tap into your inner pirate with Prana by Atzaro, the world’s largest charter Phinisi schooner, plying Indonesian waters now.

That made mapping and conquering the islands of Indonesia particularly challenging for the likes of the Dutch and the British. The region has a rich and often bloody history of both piracy and exploration, and the Spice Islands were especially famed for the quality of their boat builders and sailmakers. Now it’s your turn to set sail in search of new horizons.
