Here’s An Extract From The Abentura Cruises Website That Explains The Concept And Creation Of This One Of A Kind Banca Boat


Abentura Visayan Cruises is a dream come true formulated in the mind of Mark Salem an Australian Entrepreneur who first visited Cebu in 2008 for a vacation.

In this time discovering the beauty and fun of Island hopping for the first time and becoming familiar with the local Banka style boats Abentura slowly formulated.

Deciding although the Banka style boats used in the area were fun and offered customers a traditional and true feeling of being on the water with their open style decks covered by tarpaulins he felt that they were lacking luxury and comfort. At first appearance, The MB-Adventure-1 has all the attributes known to be attached to the style of the Filipino Banka, the sleek narrow hull that sits more above the water than below, traditional bamboo outriggers used for their strength and flexibility but that is where the similarities stop. Her superstructure boasts 7 feet ceilings and the main cabin runs more than 40 feet in length by 12 feet wide. On her 2nd deck, you will find the wheelhouse large enough to sleep 2 crewmembers comfortably and a rear viewing deck.

Island Hopping in Cebu

In 2014 the project commenced and Abentura was born, from the pegging of the ground to her completion, it took 2 years. MB-Adventure-1 grew from a timber log into more than 33 tons of timber, epoxy, copper nails, nylon and more, she is considered to be the first Native Banka Yacht built in Cebu and has been nicknamed in her building stage as “The Ark” for her sheer size. At a grand 110 feet in length and more than 30 feet from port side outrigger to starboard outrigger, the MB-Adventure-1 boasts many additions that you simply will not see on other Banka’s.

In the planning stage and all throughout the building attention was given to safety and reliability of the boat, reinforcing the hull and engine bays and adding foam to her hull along with fire retardant foam in both the engine bay, generator and fuel bay. Hydraulic steering was added for better control of her passage and as a safer alternative to cable steering. Her fuel tank holds 580 liters, which is, situated dead center of the hull separated in an insulated bay from both engines. A 1000 liter water tank is stored in the lower front compartment to help with ballast, although the fresh water tank is mainly for shower and faucets it can double up for fire safety measures if needed.

Wave breaks have been built into the design of her hull to help keep her steady in the water and push the waves away from her hull this design also has the added effect of more floatation and gives her hull a sleek finish. All her machinery is new and marine grade along with her electronics and wiring.

The MB-Adventure-1’s framework was built out of local wood and we mainly used Lawaan Red timber which is considered to be the Philippines Mahogany the side walls were made from marine grade ply and covered with 4 layers of marine epoxy resin. All the decks have been finished in fiberglass and marine epoxy paints. The nylon twine used to secure the outriggers would probably run into many kilometers and are a high-grade nylon.

All the timbers used on the MB-Adventure-1 have been treated with solignum and had been checked by the boat Master Builder to be true and clean.



Traditionally built every length of timber was doweled, epoxied and fastened with copper nails, once her hull was completed she was launched and floated and tested. The main cabin and decks were then built as she floated to ensure the stability and balance. Although by modern boat makers opinion this would probably seem a little strange from a traditional point of view and with many tens of thousands of these crafts plying the waterways of the Philippines it’s is a tried and true way.

All our builders are traditional boat makers from Punta Engano and have come from long family histories of boat makers and seamen. The MB-Adventure-1 exceeded all expectations in her sea trials and was registered and certified by Region 7 Cebu Maritime Industry Authority on March 7, 2016. In the process, the mariner authority considered her the first of a kind and she was given her certification as a luxury vessel.


Satisfaction of Customers

We designed the MB-Adventure-1 to allow a more comfortable and stylish experience to Island Hopping, we intend to supply a high level of service and attention to our customers with our 10-man crew. Our Captain is certified BC2 level Captain we have accredited first aid officers on board a well-trained team of deckhands as well service staff including massage therapist.

Dental Implants

Eximus Dental Implants makati


This section looks at the various types of dental implant restorations.

This includes a single restoration where only one crown (false tooth) is fitted through to a bridge and/or fixed dentures.

If you want to know more about the dental implants Makati procedure then visit Eximus dental implants section.

Dental implants are favored over bridges and dentures as they are seen as a permanent and aesthetic solution to the problem of missing teeth. Plus they are strong and durable and fit in well with a busy lifestyle.

The term ‘restoration’ is used to refer to a false tooth. This tooth is then attached to the implant and looks and behaves in the same way as a natural tooth.

A restoration can involve a single tooth or several teeth, many of which can be attached to a single implant. The implant is inserted into the jaw and allowed to fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration.

This process takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

Once the gum has healed and fusion has taken place the implant is then ready for the attachment of a metal abutment. This device acts as an anchor for the restoration. There are several types of abutments which are designed to blend in with your natural teeth.

The dentist will take an impression of your teeth using a mold which contains dental putty. You will be asked to bite into this putty so that the dentist has an imprint of your teeth.

This impression is sent to a laboratory for them to produce your new restoration. You will be fitted with a temporary restoration during this time.

This process is the same for both a single crown and multiple crowns.


The process is the same as mentioned above but with one difference. This involves the creation of several crowns which are then fixed to a bridge.

A bridge consists of a false tooth known as a pontic and two or more crowns (restorations) which are attached either side of it. This bridge slots into the space between your teeth caused by tooth loss and is supported by the other teeth.

The big difference between this and ordinary dentures is that a fixed bridge is cemented in place and cannot be removed each night.

Find out more about this in the bridges section, under general dentistry.


A denture is a device worn in the mouth to replace missing teeth. It can replace a few or all of your teeth. It consists of a plate with artificial teeth (restorations) attached to it and is worn on a daily basis.

But one of the problems with a denture is that of clicking noises or shifting around in the mouth. There are people who have badly fitting dentures or find that they have become lost, often due to changes in their jaw as part of the aging process.

One solution is a denture which is fixed in place with a dental implant. This is similar to a fixed bridge and removes the need to remove the dentures at night for soaking before replacing them in the morning.

The advantages of an implant retained denture are the reduced risk of trapped food particles underneath the plate which can lead to an infection: no risk of sores developing caused by friction of the denture: strong and lifelike: plus this is customized to your individual requirements.
