The Phinisi Spirit
The highly valued spices, and the fabled spice route itself, actually originated on the islands of the Malay Archipelago, later known as the “East Indies” or spice islands. Spices from these small islands were transported along a well developed network of sea routes by even more impressive sailing vessels, ancestors to the modern Phinisi.
For centuries before Europeans arrived in the area there was a vibrant trade between the spice islands and most of the known world. Great trading vessels regularly sailed as far as Africa, India, and China laden with their highly valued delicately scented cargos.
