Wow Borneo’s first boat entirely powered by solar panels is now in the final stages of construction in Pangkalan Bun, the city which has the airport nearest the famed Tanjung Puting National Park. Constructed in a simple local boat yard by experienced Bugis boatmen, it is named after the river is is being built on, the¬†Arut¬†River. Designed to accommodate 8-9 passengers, with space on deck for passengers to enjoy outdoor hammock sleeping, this boat has all of the features which set Wow Borneo apart from the others – air conditioned cabins, ensuite in every room, spacious unimpeded viewing decks and great food.
