It doesn't get more luxurious than this

Cruising on a former cargo boat might not sound too glamorous, but the Alexa proves that a little nip and tuck can transform ye old faithful into pretty much the sailboat of your dreams. With only one cabin onboard, the Alexa redefines privacy and exclusivity on the high seas. It's perfect for adventurous lovebirds looking to experience a luxed up version of a Robinson Crusoe voyage.

Inside, luxurious touches such as silk rugs, aged teak wood, and handpicked antiques set the tone for a rustic chic abode. We love how the suite isn't hidden below the deck, but set above and fitted with glass windows that let in plenty of light. When you're not lounging in bed, enjoy a cocktail at your private balcony, pick up a book from the ship's library, or get a tan on the generous sun beds. There's also a spa therapist onboard to knead those tired muscles.

Looking for a spot of adventure? Alexa's 7-member crew can arrange for a dive expedition or excursion to nearby private islands. You can choose to dine on board with a meal whipped up by a private chef or take the picnic on land.

The Alexa currently sails around stunningly beautiful and largely undiscovered Indonesian islands such as Flores, Raja Ampat, and Alor Archipelago. With such exceptional destinations combined with a luxe sailing experience like no other, we couldn't think of a better way to kick-start our inaugural #FirstClassFriday than with Alexa.
