Alexa Private Cruises is the brainchild of Veronika Blomgren, interior designer, architect, travel writer and book publisher, entrepreneur and lecturer, lifestyle expert and a nomad. After her first visit to Komodo National Park in Indonesia on a simple fishermen’s boat, she realized that her life has changed forever, and that from now on it will be connected to the seas and the ships. Alexa Private Cruises were conceived, while watching sunset over the island of Komodo… from a fishermen’s boat.
The First ALEXA was launched in 2013, and instantly became a celebrity in the yachting world. A traditional Indonesian Phinisi was transformed into the ultimate luxury cruiser – with just one cabin. A dream of absolute privacy at sea became a reality. With 30 meters on deck, she was the biggest yacht in the world catering for two passengers only. She is now based in Flores, Indonesia, busy with charters in Komodo, Alor, Sumba, Sumbawa and Raja Ampat.
The second yacht – Alexa J – will be launched in May 2018 in Greece. The concept of one cabin proved to be so successful that there was no hesitation what to do with the next vessel in the fleet. Alexa J is a larger yet equally as luxurious version of her Indonesian sister – and with 38 meters a bigger boat. Built and designed for charters in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, she is your ultimate private floating retreat.
We don’t want to disclose all the future plans, but a refit of an icebreaker bound for Patagonia is on the drawing board as is a traditional Polynesian multihull, to be based in the Pacific islands. The oceans don’t have any limits.
