The Start of Dunia Baru

Originally crafted to transport valuable goods along the esteemed Spice Islands trade route during the 17th century, Pinisi’s are traditional two-masted vessels. Their time-honored craftsmanship has been acknowledged by UNESCO as the embodiment of Indonesian sailing heritage. Dunia Baru is a majestic sailing yacht measuring 50 meters in length overall. Custom-built and crafted by Indonesia’s esteemed Konjo Boat Builders from South Sulawesi, the vessel set sail for the first time in 2014.

Using only the finest Ulin Ironwood, Dunia Baru is the grande dame of Pinisi’s. The craftsmanship is proudly displayed in all areas of the yacht’s design, from her perfectly balanced hull down to the joinery of her latches. Dunia Baru is equipped with a beam spanning 11 meters, a draft of 4.2 meters, and a voluminous capacity of 395 GT, this superyacht embodies luxury and grandeur on the seas.

A New World Inside Dunia Baru

The bow was raised using a handmade ironwood crane, followed by laying the keel in a muddy dugout by the river. Each piece of ironwood was shaped and bent over a fire, with only basic power tools like wood planers, sanders, and a chainsaw being used. Despite the expertise of the Konjo craftsmen, building Dunia Baru was a significant challenge due to its complexity and size. It took two years to construct the hull and superstructure itself.


The interior seamlessly blends contemporary luxury with the authentic essence of the vessel’s heritage. Dunia Baru offers plenty of space for relaxation and dining across its 51-meter deck. The central Teppanyaki grill kitchen is perfect for cooking and socializing, while the seamless indoor-outdoor design allows for easy gatherings.


At night, the yacht lights up beautifully thanks to carefully planned LED lighting. The sound system, with nine subwoofers synced over the Sonos platform, is ideal for relaxing or dancing under the stars glimmering like jewels in the night sky.
Dunia Baru’s engineering and amenities ensure top-notch unparalleled comfort, even exceeding land-based accommodations. The Master Bedroom provides stunning views and a study, and the spacious private deck is perfect for breakfasts or massages outdoors.
