Rascal
The Komodo Islands

This newly built 31-metre phinisi boat is a beautiful addition to the Ampersand Yacht collection. Launched at the end of 2016, she comprises of 5 cabins, sleeping up to 10 people, and is the perfect choice for family getaways or a jaunt around the archipelago with friends. Rascal can be chartered exclusively or on a cabin only basis.

The décor is retro fun with anchors and palm tree motifs, nautical striped white and blue furnishings and classic brass fixtures. This luxurious yacht does not take itself too seriously and you’ll even find a sociable lounge-come-bar on board selling Rascal’s Rum, “exclusively for rascals”! It has a rooftop sun lounging space and decks at either end so you’ll have perfect views of Indonesia’s oceans from all angles. Rascal sails the seas from Bali to Komodo National Park, and all the way to the far-eastern Banda Islands and Raja Ampat, so she is ready and waiting for any adventure you desire!

Rascal has released a series of exclusive set departure trips over the upcoming year and a few into next year, which fall nicely within our offering of leisure and dive blend options. Please see below for the currently scheduled cabin trip dates and rates:

Client Testimonials

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
