Welcome aboard the Magnificent Mangalui

Mangalui Ndulu translated into the local Nias dialect literally means ‘wave searcher’. She is an outstanding 84 foot timber sloop, custom-built for the sole purpose of searching for waves.

‘The Mango’ has chartered in the beautiful islands off Sumatra for over 2 decades. Her experienced captain and crew have hosted the world’s best surfers and witness and enjoyed some truly ground breaking sessions in virgin waves. Her reputation as being one of the finest Indonesian charter vessels afloat is well deserved.

Mangalui History
