MV Boheiman Baru
THE BOAT – Bohemian Baru is a 62′ aluminum power catamaran custom-built by the owner/operators Steve Bridge and Charlie Harris. It was built specifically for surf charter.
THE SKIPPER – Steve Bridge was born in England, raised in Australia, and has since spent his time between California, Indonesia, and Oz. He has operated four different surf charter boats in Indonesian waters during the last twenty years. Two of these he built himself.
The captain has been operating surf charter boats in Sumatra for over 15 years. Steve’s knowledge of the breaks and conditions means you’ll be at the right place at the right time to get plenty of surf. Steve has top of the line digital photo equipment and at the end of the charter you can get a CD photo album the trip and your waves.
THE CHEF – and first mate Ann has been in charge of the galley for 5 years now. She continues the tradition of great food. Ann cooks all the western dishes (and desserts) that you like plus a tasty assortment of her native Thai food. Good surf may be dependent on the conditions, but we guarantee you delicious, healthy food day in and day out on Bohemian Baru. Be prepared to gain weight.
Guests on Bohemian Baru sleep in the privacy of twin-berth cabins (not dorm style accommodation like most surf charter boats). The saloon is very large and light and airy with ample seating area, with big screen TV, VCD, and stereo. There is power available 24 hours a day to charge the batteries for your video cameras and other gear. The boat is fully air-conditioned, has a water maker, and is equipped with all modern navigational and safety equipment as well as a satellite telephone.
On deck there is plenty of room to lounge around in the cockpit or under a large deck tent. Bohemian Baru is powered by two diesel engines and cruises at 10-12 knots.
