General Information

For Sale: Naga Pelangi – The Rainbow Dragon

Experience luxury and tradition combined in Naga Pelangi – the first and only traditional Malay sailing boat for charter in Malaysia. This breathtaking vessel was painstakingly handcrafted from 2004 to 2010 on Duyong Island in Kuala Terengganu, the traditional boat-building center of Malaysia, using only the finest materials.

Built along the lines of a traditional “Pinas,” the famous junk schooners of the South China Sea, Naga Pelangi boasts old-world luxury and modern amenities. With accommodations for 6-8 guests in 4 double cabins featuring en-suite toilet/shower, and crew quarters forward which allow three crew to live on board, this boat is perfect for chartering.

Traditional techniques were blended with international yacht standards and modern materials such as Epoxy, Polysulfide deck caulking, Dacron ropes, and sails to create this prototype of a Malay classical yacht. Chengal, the wood known as the Malaysian Teak, was used for her construction. This wood is extremely hard and resistant to rot and decay. The whole boat, even the interior, is built with grade A Chengal. The deck was done with the finest quarter sawn Burmese Teak.

Naga Pelangi is built to impress, with a unique junk rig modeled after the Malay trading freighters of old, making her a head-turner everywhere she goes. Watch her under full sail or learn more about her construction in our videos.

Since 2011, Naga Pelangi has been well established as a charter boat in Langkawi, and The Datai Hotel has chartered the boat since 2014 to give their guests a unique sailing experience.

Naga Pelangi was built for her current owner after he finished his circumnavigation on his first Duyong built junk schooner in 1998. The owner decided to build the new Naga Pelangi in an effort to revive and perpetuate the tradition cultivated by the craftsmen of Duyong Island. Since the day of the launch, the owner has lived on board and maintained her meticulously.
