Cruising Catamaran rental in Bali, Gilis and Lombok
BIGKANU is where NASA takes over on the design of the traditional islander canoe. Asia's newest and most radical multihulled fast floating hotel afloat. WE are a 100% WATERWORLD experience. We are available at $1190 per day for a new, 77ft, all alloy, 11 guest, sail and solar powered, fast silent experience, made and run to Australian Standards We wander all over Indonesia, but base out of the Gili Islands, a 1.5 hour fast ferry ride from Bali, close to Lombok. We love to show our guests the lovely 9 islands of the Southern Gilis, with serenity, and miles of calm white sand beaches. We also venture to Komodo, Banda , Rote and Raja Ampat. Each month we take a surf trip along Lombok and Sumbawa's amazing coastline of deep bays and amazing beaches. We are also the only dive liveaboard boat each month doing 3 day $750 dive trips around the Gili Islands ( south and north) and Penida Lembongan. November to Feb we hit the grand expanses of Indonesia to cherry pick the very best spots for general cruises, SUP Cruises, and rare location dive trips. BIGKANU is has solar power, sail, and long slippery hulls, so uses a quarter the fuel of most boats making it the most competitive expedition boat in Indonesia. Our chef will delight you. Our hosts will keep you smiling every day, as our captain and crew get you into locations most deep draft boats have no chance of reaching. Check us out. We are BIGKANU..that's who.

Rod Davis is the designer and builder of the BIGKANU, now run by a great Indonesian crew. Rod, now partly retired has sailed across the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean and around Australia's coastline, always with an eye for the beauty and vitality of cruising life. After moths at seas, crossing long oceans, Rod came to the conclusion that yachts and cats just don't cut it when it comes to making fast, fuel efficient miles at sea. So he invented his own boat, not by tech talk, but by closely observing all the traditional traits of the island outrigger canoe, tempered through the eyes of a NASA like approach to light metals and slippery hydrodynamics. The result is the unique BIGKANU. There is no other boat like it. You can sail 2000 milse in rough seas with a bottle sitting unrestrained on the stailnless benches, and it never moves an inch. Rod has been known to break the barriers of the normal guy, on air, in politics, and in corporate life. Rod is the sheep that's not even black...its some other color no one can figure

Additional Terms & Information
Hi and Welcome. We are a fast funky floating hotel, capable of crawling up white sand beaches or crossing oceans. We normally ask you pay a deposit around 25% to secure the booking and then pay the rest on arrival In Indonesia, with an unruly legal system, we do not offer any liability cover for accident of loss, so sorry, if the is an accident for whatever reasons aboard, we do not cover any loss of injury. But we try super hard to keep it safe..but we are not infallible.
