The Mahogany was built on the southern tip of Sulawesi Island in Indonesia, where the Bugis people have a proud maritime heritage from as far back as the early spice trading days. They are known to be the best boat builders and sailors in the East Indies, and their skill became apparent to the Dutch, British and Spanish when they found their signature Pinissi boats were much faster over the waters of the area. They also became the feared pirates of the day, known as Bugisman, which is where the term “Bogeyman” comes from.

The Bugis boat builders have passed their skills down through generations and are the most highly regarded Indonesia boat builders to this day. This grand tradition is a dying trade, however, as the worldwide demand for Indonesian hardwoods and the quick profit Palm Oil industry have caused Indonesian forests decline to a point where other materials such as aluminum and fiberglass are world’s primary boat building materials.

However, Sumatran Surfariis has always paid homage to the traditional Indonesian styles, and we’ve teamed up with some long-term guests to build one last boat timber boat, and they have gone all in to make it the best it can possibly be. They have dedicated a lot of time, money, and heart to create a beautiful, long lasting wooden boat that will be the ultimate surf travel vessel.
