Find the comfort for a peaceful night of sleep in one of the ensuite cabins furnished with double beds and all essential amenities.
Wake up to the swoosh of the water and walk out to your private balcony for coffee and breakfast. At sundown, grab a drink at the bar and head to the deck for panoramic views of the turquoise ocean reflecting the sky’s pink-purple tones.



There are six ensuite cabins with double size bunk beds plus one ensuite cabin with double bed and single bed. Even though it is spacious and accommodates up to 12 people we want to keep a relaxed and family-like atmosphere with maximum 9 people on board.
The yacht also has a spacious bar and dining areas; sun deck and shaded open-air deck spaces.
This well furnished semi-luxurious safari floats on the Maldivian waters to accommodate and cater the desired to experience the unique environment, maritime and geography of the Maldives.
Sip on a morning coffee on your private ocean balcony and savor on the finest tropical delicacies fresh from the sea on the breezy dining area. Let your soul adrift on the vast ocean.


All the waves in the Maldives break on coral reefs. There are several high quality breaks and cruising is the ultimate way to conquer those empty surf breaks.  
This surf experience gives surfers a true outer atoll experience with access to 3 different atolls and more than 20 distinct surf breaks. 
These waves in the Maldives are usually small from chest high the typical Maldivian wave rolls up like most point breaks with workable corners, fun pocket, barrels and long rides. But on good occasions the waves go well overhead and the swells will hit with some power.
The variety of waves is huge – abundant and perfect as you dream about it!
