THE HISTORY OF KURABESI
Our 28 meter phinisi wooden vessel has been at sea since 2015. She is hand-crafted by some of the world’s most renowned South Sulawesi traditional boat builders.
She is a two mast sailing schooner made from iron and teak wood crowned by majestic sails. Kurabesi was made to explore.
