La Galigo boat was built by traditional Southern Sulawesi craftsmen in Bira in 2012. She is a traditional two-mast style sailboat, which the local tribes of Bugis heritage refer to as a ‘Phinisi’. The Bugis are thought to have been inspired by old Dutch Clipper sailing vessels which may have been deserted during the days of Dutch exploration, and with an abundance of tropical hardwoods in their land, have been producing these types of boats for hundreds of years.

The hull of La Galigo boat has been constructed from what is known locally as ‘Kayu Besi’ which translates as ‘Iron Wood’.

All interiors and the remainder of the vessel have been thoughtfully finished in tropical teak, with a combined weight of over 169 gross tons
