Augustine Phinisi is a family business founded in 2019 in honor of our beloved Oma  (grandmother) Augustine who had recently passed at the time.  Our business is family-run — from building our Phinisi in Tanahberu to managing daily activities, making sure our guests have the trip of their lifetimes.  Augustine Phinisi’s business is shaped by our family values and it is what makes us different from other Phinisis.  Once you step aboard, we welcome you as a part of our family
