The Anne Judith is an ex-Royal Navy Vessel, and was launched in 1944. She saw service in the North Sea as a fishing boat, in WWII as a minesweeper, and after a major re-fit in Perth, has operated as a surf charter vessel across Indonesia for over 20 years.
Now primarily an owner’s boat, the Anne Judith will offer only 60 days of charter a year, and only in remote areas that see little to no boat traffic, with a focus on the Malukus, East Sumbawa, Sumba, and a newly discovered area between Mentawais and Telos.
The new owners have refitted her for increased autonomy and remote surf discovery, and scaled down the occupancy to six guests, making this the perfect choice for groups of friends and families.
The owners purchased her to surf dream waves with no one else around, and to experience many a sunset out in the line-up calling each other into the sets. It is this spirit of the mates’ trip that permeates what we’d like to offer on our charters. No strangers in the water, no strangers on the boat. Just a fun and adventurous trip in comfort and style to some of the best and most pristine waves in the archipelago. Come see for yourself!
The focus of our travel will be in Sumbawa/Sumba/Timor from Feb-April & Oct-Nov, Malukus in January, and remote Mentawais from July-Sept. We are absolutely obsessive about finding empty surf, and can guarantee you will rarely see another soul out in the water in the areas the boat goes to. The conditions vary from 2 ft and fun, to 10 ft and heavy, lefts and rights, from long walls of carvable fun, to hollow and slabby. In the down days, we have comprehensive fishing and snorkeling gear, and often land the evening’s sushi in the late afternoon in our 14ft dinghy, which is perfect for trolling
The Anne Judith’s accommodation consists of three comfortable cabins, one with four large single beds; the other two are suites w/double beds and a private shower. All three cabins are fully air-conditioned, and feature plenty of storage space. Our dining room seats 8 guests comfortably. Our cook Wayan will surprise you with freshly coal grilled specialties from our outside BBQ, his monstrous omelets will welcome you from a morning surf, and afternoon snacks are always out. We have a cozy hang-out area out by the bow that is a preferred sunset spot, and watch movies most nights on our TV/DVD player. Beers are always cold and complimentary. We have two gen-sets that ensure your shower is always warm & the AC cold, state of the art navigation equipment, and a sat-phone for calls home when we’re in remote areas, which is, well, most of the time!
