KRI dewaruci, the beautiful barquentine flying the red and white Indonesian flag, is the largest tall ship in the Indonesian navy. She was built in 1952 by H. C. Stulchen and Son of Hamburg, Germany and launched in 1953. Since then the ship has served the Indonesian Navy as a sail training vessel and a successful ambassador of goodwill for the people of Indonesia. Dewaruci’s name and figurehead represent the mythological Indonesian god of truth and courage.
