Rascal, both by name and nature - the luxurious Phinisi yacht that everyone wants to get on board. Fast making a name for herself amongst the most adventurous of luxury travellers, Rascal brings an entirely new hospitality experience to the boundless waters of Indonesia’s archipelago.
Available for private charter only, a Rascal journey allows its guests to take the reign – it has no enforced itineraries, limits, rules or regulations, allowing a group of up to 10 adults to challenge themselves, push the boundaries and get their adrenaline pumping. Every Rascal voyage dares to defeat her last, and here are 5 reasons why:
1. Infinity Roof
The decision to remove the mast and sails from Rascal was made not only to enable all five expansive cabins to stretch across two high-ceilinged, above-water decks (the only Phinisi in the world to boast this), but to maximise the guest experience and unleash unrivalled entertaining potential! With the sea as Rascal’s very own private infinity pool, the 21-foot high roof deck serves as the ultimate diving board. Complete the levels from beginner to expert and take the plunge from the first deck, bow and second deck, before braving the highest plummet from the roof into the crystal clear waters. By night, a floating roof top cinema experience is provided from a movie-screen projector, activated for guests to enjoy films under the stars on the luxuriously comfortable beanbag chairs.
2. The Watersports
The elite, knowledgeable and adventurous dive master, Gaz Phillips, has arguably one of the world’s most sought-after jobs as ‘Rascal Cruise Director’. Running an exclusive on-board guest dive centre, Gaz provides PADI training, certification and outstanding daily diving experiences in some of his favourite hidden spots. For the non-divers, the Rascal sea kayaks are ideal for explorations of the crystal-clear waters and hours can be spent wakeboarding around the stunning coves and bays. A speedboat is also on hand to take for a spin with the uninterrupted ocean as the playground, and an inflatable towable jumbo follows for the even more daring Rascals to attempt to ride the waves without falling off – lifejackets are advised.
3. Drinking and Dining!
A luxury yacht with its own brand of Rum – unusual and genius! Every hour is happy hour on Rascal, as guests can channel their inner pirate and celebrate all day on board with a Rascal Rum cocktail in-hand. The cocktail menu is crafted by the award-winning Proof & Company mixologists and the Rascal favourites include Queen’s Park Swizzle, Frozen Banana Daiquiri, and Dark ‘n Stormy. Time flies when you’re having Rum!
Rascal also boasts an unrivalled dining menu with food sourced from local organic farmers and artisanal purveyors. Balinese institution Watercress restaurant introduces its first ever floating menu on-board Rascal, bringing guests an unlimited selection of its renowned hearty and wholesome dishes, specially created to suit their dietary preferences. Delicious rustic breakfasts are served full of colour, flavour and goodness – from organic granolas to free-range poached eggs with chunky avocado salsa. Lunch is a showcase of local grilled seafood, barbequed meats, abundant salads and authentic homemade Indonesian favourites. No meal is complete without dessert – guests are treated to a jar of salted caramel and rich chocolate mousse or boat-made chocolate brownies with vanilla bean ice cream.
4. The Off-Piste Rule
All Rascal charters are private so each new day brings a new direction. The Rascal guest is invited to take control of the charts and plan an off-piste route, with Cruise Director Gaz Phillips expert input on the archipelagos most secluded and remote locations.
5. The Shipwrecked Experience
The crew are Rascals too - guests may be left stranded on a desert island with nothing but a black sky, a bonfire, a live band and barbecue, with Rascal just an unrecognizable spec on the horizon. Guests will live the shipwrecked experience (with cocktails and a private candlelit beach dinner), before the crew comes to the rescue!
