The Surf Charter Boat Conversion Project Update, March 2012

March 16th, 2012 - by Nino Krisnan

Continuing the story of ‘Wooden Vessel Assessment for Surf Charter Boat Conversion Project‘ and also the January 2012 update, as written in the News page in Blue Archipelago Yachts website before, we would like to share what we have achieved so far. The final lay out and exterior styling have been generated by combining the operation requirements and latest boat dimensions based on latest measurement.

Resandi Sasmita from BAYachts team went to Padang, West Sumatra, to visit the boat which the original superstructure, bulkheads, lower deck construction had been taken apart. It left him a bare hull to be measured more accurately after which the lay out and exterior styling readjustment started from there.


After this conversion project is completed, the surf charter boat will look like the above 3D illustration. The 3D drawings were provided to manage our expectation of the shape of the boat and also help us to understand more about the proportion of the design.

Discussion Forum (Results): The Future of Boat and Yacht Industry in Indonesia

October 16th, 2011 - by Nino Krisnan

Kakanoo Marine participated as exhibitor in the Marine Solutions Alliance booth at the Indonesia Maritime Expo 2011, 13-15 October 2011, at the Jakarta Convention Center. Thanks to our co-exhibitors, the Boat Indonesia (Indonesian boat community), BAYachts and Kakanoo Marine team were given the opportunity to present a topic of “The Future of Boat and Yacht Industry in Indonesia” on Saturday, 15 October 2011 in the expo’s discussion forum.

Kakanoo Marine CEO presented the topic and had a great time hosting a very good interactive discussion forum, which was attended by local and international audiences. We believe that we and most of the participants had optimistically concluded that there is a bright future for the boat and yacht industries in Indonesia, considering that Indonesia (the largest archipelago in the world, covers around half of the coral triangle, is home to hundreds of different cultures, 95.181 km of tropical coastline, among many things) is one of the world’s greatest playground for boats and yachts. However, we need to keep working on our homework, in keeping with the Indonesian boat and yacht vision. The identified key issues as the homework were:

  • Information Management (source, distribution and access)
  • Business Environment Management  (marketing and promotion, fiscal & monetary regulation, logistic, infrastructure, etc.)
  • Operation Environment Management  (seamanship, seaworthiness, security, SAR, etc.)
  • Environment Management  (pollution, fuel efficiency, waste management, etc.)
  • Industry Environment Empowerment (technology, knowledge, professionalism, synergy, benchmarking, etc.)

BAYachts and Kakanoo Marine,together with our boat and maritime community (Boat Indonesia and Indonesia Maritime Club) and also other stakeholders, keep on working-hard and smart-in order to turn the vision into reality.
