About Tiger Blue

A Liveaboard Adventure

Tiger Blue is a traditional 34m timber phinisi yacht which sails around the stunning islands of Eastern Indonesia.

Designed with families and groups of friends in mind, a journey on Tiger Blue is guaranteed to be packed with unforgettable moments whether it be searching for dragons on Komodo, spotting birds of paradise in West Papua or snorkeling with giant manta rays over the coral gardens of Raja Ampat.

"The ravishing scenery and pristine coastlines are made for admiring from the low-key luxury surrounds of Tiger Blue’s vast alfresco decks" - Financial Times

Your Floating Home

One of the best things about Tiger Blue is the sense of space.

In addition to the large dining table, the main deck features two double daybeds as well as a chill out area at the rear of the boat. On the upper deck you can kick back on our sunloungers, taking in the spectacular views whilst enjoying the sunshine and perhaps a good book.
