The Southern Cross boasts a huge shaded front deck which is a great place to relax and have a bite to eat, watch your friends surf, or pick up the video camera to capture some footage. Every day we bring out the big padded mats, so it’s also a great place to practice some stretching or take a nap. In addition to the downstairs shaded area, we have another large shaded area on the top level that doubles as one of our two main dining areas. We have a huge table with benches and chairs that seats up to ten quite comfortably. There are two additional padded benches if you want to lay down or need some extra room expand after eating all the fresh fish you catch. This entire area is shaded, and it’s also a great place to eat at night when a cool breeze is blowing, and view on of Aki’s famous slideshows of the day’s best surfing and scenic shots.
Our other dining area is in the main deck in the salon. Couches surround another large serving table, which is also the site where you hope you don’t roll ‘em off the table in the infamous Dice Game. Every morning, often before you awaken, the crew lays out several trays of fruits, eggs, breads, cereal, granola, milk, etc. – good energy producing food to give you fuel for your first surf. Eri your chef has his own self-contained galley, which enables him to weave his magic for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Southern Cross has truly become THE pioneering boat for Northern Sumatra missions, but it still does plenty of trips to the good old Ments, including several explorations to its southern regions. SC’s 660 horsepower push it along at a good clip, which has enabled this boat to arguably do more miles than any other boat in these islands. Southern Cross has discovered many waves and is well known by villages all over the island chain. With our ongoing relief effort, her name only strengthens. As a result, Southern Cross is often booked almost a year in advance. This shows the good name she has, so it’s recommended that you start planning a trip early if you wish to come aboard. We constantly maintain The Cross to keep her a top notch vessel, and we continue to add new amenities and technology to make the experience as pleasurable as possible for our guests.
