About Maha Bintang
At 19 metres long and 4.2 metres across the beam, Maha Bintang takes six to eight surfers, in its two twin-berth and one four-berth cabin – the boat can comfortably accommodate couples, families and groups of friends.
Maha Bintang is a motor yacht powered by two 350HP deisel engines with a cruising speed of 10 knots. Two 26KVa generators provide on-board power and air-conditioning in all living areas and cabins. VHF radios plus marine band and satellite phone maintain contact with outside world. There’s also marine radar, GPS, EPIRB, PFDs and a 20-man life raft for safety.
Support boats include a 6 metre aluminium centre consul tender; a fast 5-metre RIB, 12′ zodiac and a jet ski so getting guests right into the take-off area for legendary waves like HTs and Rifles is easy and provides plenty of opportunity for fishing and snorkeling – all the gear is on board.
The on-board chef prepares three delicious meals every day, full of fresh ingredients and all the seafood you can catch. Fruit, biscuits, nuts and chocolate bars are available between meals. Fresh water, tea, coffee, juice, soft drinks and three beers per day are included. A fully equipped galley features a drinks fridge, while the comfortable lounge/dining area has large flat-screen TV, DVD, video & photo playback, and a great sound system.
