When Conte Max was launched, back in 2004, the Maldives did not offer many boats of such comfort and standard as to represent an alternative to the islands’ resorts also for those who did not engage in diving activities. With the launch of Conte Max the concept of a cruise combining the rejuvenating wellbeing of the Maldives’ sea and scenery with the wellbeing of an on-board ayurvedic spa was born and in terms of Maldives cruises a totally new trend was established.
Thanks to its increasingly refined cuisine, its staff who has been ‘growing up’ with the boat and customer service class and attention to detail, Conte Max has become one of the best-known and best-loved boats among those who for years have not been able to do without regular visits to the Maldives to discover with us what these islands have to offer, both above and below the sea surface...
8 large cabins, namely:
1 suite (second deck) with one queen size bed and one single bed
4 triples with one double bed and one single bed
3 twin bed cabins.
All cabins feature independently adjustable air conditioning and bathroom with shower cabin.
There are no bunk beds.
Outdoor dining area (in the aft part of the first deck) and indoor area which can be used in case of rain. The meals are served at the table and the menus include dishes from the Italian-international and Maldivian cuisine, mainly prepared with fresh fish, although our chefs are always ready to satisfy any of our guests’ specific requirements. Once a week a buffet of traditional Maldivian dishes is prepared.
The indoor saloon has a bar offering a wide choice of soft drinks and spirits and a TV-DVD-Stereo area furnished with comfortable rattan sofas . All the furniture inside the yacht is made of valuable Maldivian wood, which lend the place a unique and particular feel.
The communal open-air spaces are on three decks and offer areas furnished with sun loungers, sun mats and deck chairs.
The decks allow guests to enjoy the breathtaking Maldivian scenery, both when sailing and while relaxing when the yacht is moored in the lagoons for the night.
The on-board boutique offers traditional Maldivian souvenirs, gadgets and Luxury Yacht Maldives T-shirts.
