The KM Nusa Dewata is a beautiful 68-foot wooden sloop rigged motor sailor commissioned in Lembongan back in 1992.


The Nusa Dewata was built as an Indonesian surf charter vessel and has been fitted to approved safety standards to take passengers to sea. She has all the survey required safety equipment which includes a 15 man life raft, flares, life jackets, fire fighting equipment, Icom SSB radio VHF radio, 2 hand held radios, EPIRB, GPS, depth sounder and an extensive first aid kit for all sorts of emergencies.


She is fitted with a reliable Mitsubishi PS 100 hp main engine and a 1500 litre fuel tank giving her over 500 nautical miles range with a cruising speed of 8 knots. She is powered by an Onan 8kva/240 volt generator. The water tank also holds 1500 litres. Nusa Dewata has a newly re-planked hardwood hull with full teak decking and interior. There is a laptop computer, weather fax and geo-sat phone on board. Also there is an iPod, TV, and DVD player for entertainment.


As well as being one of the prettiest boats in the fleet, she is accompanied by a trusty 17’ aluminium tender with an 100hp 4-stroke outboard engine to ferry guests to the surf spots and for recreational fishing and snorkelling. They supply extensive game fishing equipment and snorkelling gear.


They specialise in small groups, families, and father and son charters, long boarders and all girl trips. They can also travel to the Telos Islands on request. The Nusa Dewata has plenty of shaded deck area both forward and rear for guests to relax and enjoy their surroundings and contemplate their next surf session.


The Nusa Dewata was selected as 1 of 4 vessels chartered for the 2000 Surfer magazine / OP pro contest in Mentawai and has been featured in numerous mags and videos. She also played a key role in the 2004 tsunami relief effort.


Nusa Dewata Surf Charters cater for a minimum 5 and maximum 6 persons for each charter.

Before 2013 season, there is all new rigging, a new anchor chain, some new timber ribs & planks and everything painted up & down. The recent addition, a 17' speedboat has also had a paint & reupholstering of seats. There is also an 11' paddle board for cruising around, backup boards if yours don't arrive and fishing & snorkeling gear. 

The bunk room stays on 17 degrees Celsius & they provide comfortable quilts to sleep under.


Captain & Crew

Simon Dale purchased the Nusa Dewata in November 2006 after being a part owner since 2002. He used to work as a cray fisherman in Western Australia as well as diving on oilfield rigs in SE Asia in the early 1980’s. He then moved on to delivering yachts around the world for a number of years experiencing just about every possible situation the seven seas could throw at him.


He has been extensively surfing in Indonesia since 1979 and around the Mentawai Islands since 1996. He has limited medical training and will be happy to “stitch you up” if the occasion arises at no extra expense.


With his vast experience, an awesome skipper, and friendly boat boy, the team are sure to maintain the solid reputation that the Nusa Dewata has held in the archipelago for the last 10 years. Splitting surf guiding duties with Simon is the young guide Jake Thompson from Australia.


Also Nusa Dewata’s Australian trained Indonesian chef will blow your taste buds away with generous helpings of tasty energy filled Indonesian and western dishes guaranteed to satisfy even the fussiest eaters.

Juan (October 2015)
After planning for many years and changing days , for me was the first trip to the Indo Region, even though I have been in other places for surf, I am really happy with the place, service and all in general. What a trip!. More than the surf, its was like my old home, the Caribbean where I come from. The crystal waters, warm, food, and the surf! I could stay longer in a boat, and really I would like to return the next year.

Sheldon (September 2014)
Just returned from the ments after spending 10 days on the nusa dewata. Simon got us into excellant crowd free waves on numerous occasions throughout the trip. The food and crew were excellant. Although it was not the fastest boat in the ments it provided value for money and many unforgettable memories. Thasks again to the crew of nusa dewata.
