The Budyadahri was built by local Indonesians in 2001 and designed specifically for surf travel by Westerners. Thus, the Budyadahri is significantly wider and “taller” than your typical Indonesian charter boat. You will never find yourself crouching or squeezing through areas. In 2005 Sumatran Surfariis took over the running of the BD and the first thing we did was replace the entire hull with Indonesian hardwood to keep it strong and safe. The modifications have kept coming ever since, and we continue to strive to make Budyadahri THE best value in the islands.

The owner recently expanded the sleeping area to include ten ample sized bunk beds, with an additional private room option for couples. The beds have brand new spring mattresses, sheets, and pillows, and will easily sleep a 6’6” giant. They are curtained off for your privacy, with your own light, fan, power and storage area. There are three air conditioners in the sleeping quarters to keep it super dingin’, and portholes open as well for fart free living. We have opted to have the TV/DVD in the dining room to let the weary rest in peace behind closed cool doors. It’s also nicely soundproofed from the upstairs party gang, making a sly escape pre dawn surf kip even more profitable.

The indoor dining room is kitted out with a large coke style drink fridge, food and drink self service area, dining tables, lounges, TV/DVD and stereo. Most meals are eaten here whilst watching the latest captured surf footage, slideshows, or a movie.
