Dhoni Stella Surf Family Charter - Male, Atolls. Maldives


Yacht Maldives - Dhoni Stella I and II Overall rating: 5 out of 5 based on 1 reviews.

If you’re yearning for an intimate yet fun holiday with your loved ones, the Maldivian Dhoni Stella I and II got your back!


DHONI STELLA I & II are Maldivian luxury dhonies, each with just two air conditioned cabin-suites, catering for 2-6 passengers and available for private charter only. Dhoni Stella I — recommended for one couple or one family — and Dhoni Stella II for two couples or two families. Maldives enthusiasts will experience a really unique holiday, sailing the archipelago with their family or with another couple aboard a genuine and charming traditional boat.


DHONI STELLA yachts are wonderful combinations of classic and modern style. Built by using mainly local wood, the finishing touches bring you back to a time of simplicity and elegance, nostalgic of the antique boats on which these cruisers were modeled; though the modern comforts of holiday luxury have certainly not been forgotten.


Setting ourselves apart from the other cruisers available in the archipelago, where passengers share the boat with other tourists and follow a pre-planned program, DHONI STELLA guests are free to design their own cruise. You choose the destinations and activities that suit you, including: scuba diving, surfing, snorkeling, fishing, islands hopping and more.


Dhoni Stella’s crew members are trained to provide excellent service; each Dhoni yachts are composed of each of captain, chef, steward, and dive guide if needed. The crew is led by Ahmed Nasru, a professional in the tourism industry, who organizes the responsibilities and assignments of each member.


DHONI STELLA I accommodates up to 4 guests in 2 cabins, one with 1 double bed and the other with 2 twin beds.

DHONI STELLA II accommodates up to 6 guests in 2 cabins. Both the cabins have triple capacity with 1 double bed and 1 single bed. All the cabins are individually air conditioned and have shower and toilet. Crew has a separate companionway, heads and shower.
