The Boat - Bohemian Baru surf charters

Bohemian Baru is a 62′ aluminum power catamaran custom-built by the owner/operators Steve Bridge and Charlie Harris. It was built specifically for surf charter. Guests on Bohemian Baru sleep in the privacy of twin-berth cabins. The saloon is very large and light and airy with ample seating area, big screen TV, VCD, and stereo. There is power available 24 hours a day to charge the batteries for your video cameras and other gear. The boat is fully air-conditioned, has a water maker, and is equipped with all modern navigational and safety equipment.

Bohemian is spacious, comfortable and STABLE. Catamarans don’t roll from side to side like other boats. On Bohemian you can put a can of beer down on the table and it will stay there. This makes it much more user-friendly, ESPECIALLY for people who are prone to sea-sickness. Built by surfers, for surfers, with the emphasis on function and practicality, Bohemian gives you the room you need to move around and enjoy yourself.

Bohemian Baru is powered by two diesel engines and cruises at 10-12 knots.

THE SKIPPERS – Steve BridgeTHE SKIPPERS – Steve Bridge was born in England, raised in Australia, and has since spent his time between California, Indonesia, and Oz. He has operated four different surf charter boats in Indonesian waters during the last twenty years. Two of these he built himself. Moose Matthew has joined the Bohemian team and will be skippering the boat as well. Moose is a kiwi who been living and surfing in Sumatra for over 20 years. He owned and operated his own surf charter boat, Kuda Laut, for the last 15 years.

Steve & Moose’ knowledge of the breaks and conditions means you’ll be at the right place at the right time to get plenty of surf. Steve has top of the line digital photo equipment and at the end of the charter you can get a CD photo album the trip and your waves.

THE CHEF – AnnAnn has been in charge of the galley for 7 years now. All our chefs have been personally trained by Ann and cook all the western dishes (and desserts) that you like plus a tasty assortment of Thai food. Our current chef Yan learned his lessons well.  Good surf may be dependent on the conditions, but we guarantee you delicious, healthy food day in and day out on Bohemian Baru. Be prepared to gain weight.

Bohemian Baru offers exclusive charters to groups of 8-10 surfers. We carry a maximum of 10 paid charter guests. But Bohemian Baru has full accommodation for up to 12 charter guests and we can handle large groups on request.
