M/SY Dhoni Stella

Boat Description

Dhoni Stella I & II are Maldivian luxury dhonies, each with just two cabin-suites, catering for 2-6 passengers and available for private charter only. Maldives enthusiasts will experience a really unique holiday, sailing the archipelago with their family or with another couple.

They are the first liveaboards designed on the model of the legendary Kalhuofummi, the miraculous 'dhoni' of the Maldivian hero, Mohammad Thakurufaanu, which escaped several times from the more equipped boats of the enemy in occasion of the Portuguese invasion of the Maldives on the second part of XVI century.

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.

Cabins

Each Dhoni Stella yacht hosts two, elegant cabin-suites with local décor accents and the exotic warmth of teak and red meranti woods. Each cabin is located at sea level with large windows, excellent ventilation and a tranquil Maldives sea view. Each of the cabin-suites is fully equipped with large ensuite bathrooms, individual air conditioning, flatscreen TVs with DVD players and ample storage space.
