MSV Si Datu Bua

SSi Datu Bua (Beloved Princess) is Silolona Sojourns newest traditional sailing ship. Built by the master Konjo boat builders of Sulawesi to exacting German Lloyds specifications this magnificent vessel melds the best of traditional island sailing vessels with all of the modern amenities and safety features that have established Silolona Sojourns as the undisputed standard for excellence.

From the Sulawesi Sea to the mountains of Toradja in combination with our fully refurbished intricately carved 164-year-old clan house on the slopes of Gunung Sesean. Si Datu Bua’s tastefully appointed décor, spacious decks, delightful Asian fusion cuisine and full range of aquatic activities provide the perfect counterpoint for a combined land & sea adventure.


“The sea shall be her home, the islands and their people her realm, the glory of sunrise and sunset shall mark her days, the splendor of moon and stars her nights, and thus all who sail upon her shall know undisturbed peace in their hearts.”
