The King Millenium I is a 20m long boat with a 6m beam that has an average cruising speed of 10 knots. King Millenium I was built in Indonesia and designed by surfers for surfers.
It has 3 double rooms and a 4 person room with air conditioning, ample single beds and individual cupboards. The top deck features a wide living room with dining table, comfy couches, air conditioning, TV, DVD and stereo. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bathroom is ample. There’s also a nice lounge deck area from which to watch the waves. The King Millenium I also has a dinghy for surf transfers, to take pictures, etc.
We guarantee a comprehensive diet to meet the demands of all our guests. Our guests are entitled as many fresh fruit juices, soft drinks and bottled water as they want within a reasonable limit. The package includes 2 daily beers; all extra beers are paid at local prices.
The crew of the King Millenium I has many years of experience in surf charters. We all speak English and treat the guests such that they feel at home. We have been working for years with customers from all nationalities and combined (David and Poti) we have more than 20 years experience in the Mentawai’s.

The bridge of the King Millenium I is equipped with a satellite phone, GPS, sonar, radar, USB and a 16 channel radio. As far as safety is concerned, the boat is fitted with an ebirp or emergency signal, flares, lifejackets and a life raft for 20 people. We strongly recommend our guests take out travel insurance in case they need to be evacuated.
When the passengers arrive in Padang our land crew takes them to a hotel (hotel charges not included) in town with all comforts to rest until the boat disembarks. The King Millenium I leaves Padang to the Mentawai’s at night depending on tides (weather conditions permitting) and arrives for the first waves at dawn the next morning. The following days the boat goes around the islands to find the best conditions and guests can surf as much as they want in each spot. At night, the King Millenium I either stays in quiet locations for sleeping or sails to other areas so as to maximise daylight hours for surfing.
Of course, it’s not only surfing that’s on offer: guests can fish, snorkel, visit the islands or just relax. We sail back to Padang during last night of the trip so we arrive to the port early morning. Guests can stay onboard until the land crew takes them to the airport for their flights unless they want to go and rest at a hotel (hotel charges not included)
Dining and drinks
The chef onboard the King Millenium I prepares 3 meals per day plus a variety of snacks in between meals so all our guests can get a healthy diet. The meals are based around fresh local produce such as fish, fruit, vegetables, pasta and meat. The chef cooks both European and Asian cuisine so our guests can sample some delicious Indonesian food.
