Surf charters enter into the realms of dreamland for most surfers, but the exclusive and ultimate luxury Ratu Motu (formerly Indies Trader IV) cranks everything up several levels. Famous from Kelly and the Young Guns, this luxurious surf boat complete with heliport and a very experienced international crew, cruises the waters of West Sumatra and West Papua. With crystalline waves breaking on its shores year-round, Indonesia is a water wonderland.  It’s no easy feat to navigate an archipelago that contains roughly 18,000 islands. Now, travellers can journey to unexplored pristine beaches, waking to a different break each day on the Ratu Motu, a 129-foot power yacht.
