KRI Dewaruci

The KRI Dewaruci is a Class A tall ship and the only tall mast ship of the Barquentine class owned and operated by the Indonesian Navy.
She is used as a sail training vessel for naval cadets and is the largest tall ship in the Indonesian fleet.
The Dewaruci also serves as a goodwill ambassador for the country of Indonesia to the rest of the world.

Here she is being assisted in docking by two tugs just north of Maritime Museum.
I was given a quick personal tour by one of her officers just after she docked.

the colourful tugs may be superfluous, as the Dewaruci looks higly manouverable...even with sails furled it seems a marvelous vessel too...V
