Soloro Bessi is a company based in Indonesia specializing in designing and building premium wooden yachts.
The company was built through passionate experience in modern naval architectural engineering, extensive track record in yacht building, the enjoyment exploring on board and underwater wonders, and the love to Indonesia’s heritage of the legendary Phinisi boats. These aspects have formed our company as a response to niche demand in yacht businesses for avid classic and wooden yacht enthusiasts and the authentic experience one pursuit when on board cruising or sailing a wooden yacht.
Soloro Bessi aims to deliver artisan wooden yachts with a combination of state-of-the-art yacht technology and genuine craftsmanship of the traditional Phinisi, a proud trademark of the ancient Bugis craftsmanship and expertise in constructing strong wooden vessels that have sailed the oceans since the 14th century. Our “Phinisi Spirit” preserves the authenticity of traditional boat building and maintains the sophisticated art techniques of craftsmanship that require high level of skill. Our experienced team of builders own the capability and knowledge through years of building wooden yachts including one of the largest Phinisi yachts sailing today. Partnering with us in building your custom wooden yacht means participating in sustaining one of the Intangible Cultural Heritage to be listed by UNESCO, adding an exceptional value to your vessel.
Having been in a dependable partnership strengthening networks with key parties of the Phinisi industry in Sulawesi, Soloro Bessi delivers the demand of a trusted partner in the field and in Indonesia today. Our reliability in the industry involves managing logging regulations and local policies ensuring a smooth process to our projects. Uniting strength between our naval architects, naval engineers, builders, skilled artisans, and the right components in the field, Soloro Bessi equals to a fully supported venture.
Combining the “Phinisi Spirit” with modern technology, engineering, and project management, we make sure that every stage of our yacht building process is given the same level of attention in maintaining our high obsession in quality. Endless teamwork between our team of builders, designers, and engineers implementing quality control and supervision assures that each progress is constructed according to the design plans and completed within the calculated time frame.
Equally important to delivering your custom yacht, Soloro Bessi commits to generate positive contribution to the community of the Phinisi boat industry at our shipyard. It is our concern that the community we work with benefit and grow with us as a whole. Our contribution to the community goes beyond social cause, but to maintain the sustainability of the Phinisi as a cultural heritage for the local communities, people of Indonesia, and world community.
