La Galigo

La Galigo - Indonesia Liveaboards - Dive Discovery Indonesia

La Galigo has been built by traditional Southern Sulawesi craftsmen in Bira in 2012. She is a traditional two mast Phinisi style sailboat, which the Buginese have perfected over hundreds of years. Her sturdy hull has been built from Kalimantan ironwood and the rest of the vessel has been finished to perfection in warm tropical teak.

She has been designed by an avid liveaboard diver with the liveaboard diving lifestyle comfort and practicality in mind. Motor and generator noise have been engineered out by isolating the engine room away from rooms with thick walling. Cabins and ensuite’s are filled with plentiful natural light and spectacular views of the passing seas and islands.

La Galigo consists of 3 main decks for living and diving plus an additional roof top deck that is opened during favourable conditions. All cabins have wardrobes with plenty of space for your luggage, and a desk to fill out your log book after a spectacular day diving. All cabins also have hot water in the showers.
