Indies Trader 3
Escape the crowds
<div >Trader III can travel through sea conditions comfortably that keep the rest of the charter boats hiding in the anchorage. This means that can be where we want to be to get the best waves in almost all weather conditions-comfortably. Too crowded in the Mentawais? Wake up the next morning in a different Island chain – that’s what we’re famous for.
The Indies III allows our guests to go virtually anywhere.
<div >Coastal Sumatra? Nias? Enggano? Panaitan? Banyaks? Roti? Sumba? Sulawesei? Indonesian Pacific Coast? Trader III can go places few can get to. The Indies Trader III has over a three thousand mile range which means she can go virtually anywhere in Indonesia. Trader III also has a fuel browser for filling up our other vessels at sea if necessary. Trader 3 carries 20 tonnes of fuel. A large walk-in chiller can keep produce fresh for weeks and our walk in freezer can carry enough food for six months. Two, five thousand litre, (1,300 gallons) a day water maker makes sure we never run out of water.
<div >The Trader III has unsurpassed size and stability 125 tonnes GRT make her the second largest surf charter boat operating in Indonesia (behind the Indies IV). Her Niaid, Gyro controlled anti roll system and wing like stabilizer fins mounted on the chines amidships eliminate 90% of the vessels roll whilst underway. If you are prone to sea sickness the Trader III is the only choice.

<div >All of our Captains know where to go to escape the crowds and find the best waves possible.Martin is in constant contact with all the boats with updated weather & surf forecasting modules and needless to say the Indies Trader boats score empty perfection more often than anyone because they actively seek out the best wave/wind conditions day in and day out.
<div >The Indies Trader series can also boast the best and longest track record of uninterrupted scheduled charters in the industry. Each boat undergoes an annual survey and full ocean going safety equipment test to Solas International Standards. Each boat carries comprehensive loss and liability insurance as a passenger carrying commercial craft.
<div >The standard trip duration is 12 days / 13 nights, two days longer than most of our competitors. We stay out for these two extra days to ensure that our guests have the opportunity to surf at least one solid swell during their stay, but in all likelihood we usually encounter two, sometimes three significant swell events during our scheduled charter dates. If you’re going to travel halfway across the world those two extra days are worth their weight in gold.
8 guests maximum.
