Samata is a wooden-hulled, Sulawesi-built schooner which focuses on the Komodo Island area, operating from Labuan Bajo so no time is spent getting to and from the national park. Samata means 'tranquility' and 'balance' in Sanskrit and the boat is well-named since it is a smooth and sturdy vessel and, at 42 metres in length, is a substantial liveaboard boat. There are a variety of trip durations operated and the schedule is open to change since, with a maximum of 8 divers, Samata is a popular private whole boat charter. So if you have a group and want to set your own itinerary then the Samata's schedule can be flexible to your needs. With 13 staff to 8 guests you will be more than well looked after and, under French ownership, both English and French are spoken on board. Soft drinks and beer are included in the price and there is a wide choice of wines as you would expect under French ownership. There are delightful wood panelled floors and furniture throughout, including the 4 double en-suite cabins, the air-conditioned saloon and dining area, plus the outdoor seating areas and sun deck. There is plenty of relaxation space on board. So for couples or groups seeking the best of Komodo in great comfort and style, you could do worse than book a Komodo Island liveaboard trip on board KLM Samata and find your own tranquility and balance.18m² Dive deck & 3m² dive platform with shower - 2 Motorised dive dinghies - Separate rinse tank for cameras - Camera table - Saloon with TV, DVD, sound system and Nintendo Wii game console - Computer with CD burner & photo / video editing - Movie and book library, games and magazines, fish ID and diving books - Water dispenser - Open-air dining area - Well-stocked bar - 112m² Open-air shaded area - 18m² Sun deck with sun chairs and mattresses
