Brand profile ANANDA Luxury Cruises

The ANANDA is 28 metres long, has two decks and is hand-built from wood in the style of a traditional Phinisi, an Indonesian two-master sailing ship. The combination of traditional craftsmanship, selected materials such as ironwood and teak combined with modern technology makes the ANANDA a very special wooden ship with a stylish atmosphere.
