The indoor dining room is kitted out with a large coke style drink fridge, food and drink self service area, dining tables, lounges, TV/DVD and stereo. Most meals are eaten here whilst watching the latest captured surf footage, slideshows, or a movie.
Our upstairs outdoor shaded top deck is gold, and it’s one of the key amenities that makes the Budy one of the best boats out there. Trust us, when you’re on a boat for two weeks you need elbow room and we have far more shaded kick back space than almost any boat in the islands. This is an ideal place to hang out, grab a cold Bintang from the fridge, catch the cool breeze and watch your buddies surf whilst listening to your favorite tunes on the new banging stereo. On calm nights we often eat dinner here before the usual nightly Bintang session. In 2007, we added about 4 meters of space on the upstairs stern, which include more board storage racks, space for stretching, and a fishing area for your pleasure.
A few seasons back we removed front tarp and replaced it with a new stronger frame and solid decking. We also just gave the BD an extra 30 square feet of kickback space. The guests love it. It’s perfect for the arvo happy hour sunset session, running back flips, catching the full sun’s rays or casting a few poppers. And we have recently put an extra two new speakers facing out for your added listening pleasure. Directly under the solid deck, shaded from the sun, there is room for 30 boards fully loaded to be stored. It also becomes the coolest place on the boat to hang or hammock because it catches the entire breeze and provides solid shade shelter. We may be bias, but there is no one that matches us for kickback space.
Budyadahri also has two tenders; an 85Hp center console that can fit ten guests and a smaller runabout rubber duck. Not manyoperators run two tenders, and even fewer have a glorious 85Hp speed machine!! It’s such an advantage; we can still do the normal running in and out from the surf as well as send a group out to another break or for a fish or even a scurf. A super bonus indeed.
Out the back, we also increased the length of the stern by a full two meters longer. That has opened up the fishing and kickback area quite a bit. There are six rod holders and storage for quick grab hand lines when the squids arrive or maybe some garries for live baits. The boat has two good boat rods and we are more than happy to run the guests gear. Casting rods are great with poppers or boat rods with rapalas and skirts doing the best.
Budyadahri has two bathrooms, with showers, which is a major plus with large groups. The sides of the boat allow room for two to walk on by. Additional amenities include a new generator, winch, hull covered with grip tape for extra safety, full re-fit inside, new couches and kickback area.
We really hope you’ll come join us on the Budyadahri. We have done our absolute best getting her ready, and we reckon it’s one of if not the best value for a charter boat in the islands. Be sure and check the schedule for the latest availability. Thanks!!
