Indonesian tall ship KRI Bima Suci will be visiting Sydney this month, with a public open day being held on Sunday 11th September.
Built in 2016, the Bima Suci is the Indonesian Navy’s largest sail training ship at 111∙2m length overall and a masthead height of 53∙0m. This spectacular vessel is one of the world’s largest tall ships, featuring 26 sails and capable of 15 knots under sail.
The vessel is named after a Javanese hero that was a symbol of force, bravery and righteousness. The ship acts as a Floating Ambassador for Indonesia, paying goodwill visits to port and events around the world.
The ship is currently berthed at Athol Bay and is expected to berth alongside Garden Island at 10am on Saturday 10th.
