Launched in 2011, this luxurious liveaboard accommodates up to 20 passengers in ten well appointed cabins, each with en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and ample storage space.

The wooden hull safari yacht is 38 metres in length and accompanied by a custom built 20m long diving dhoni, providing guests with an exceptional and luxurious yachting experience, the boat features large hotel-style staterooms, a Jacuzzi and unmatched open-air comfort. The main deck features an indoor salon/restaurant that includes an inviting lounge and large flat screen TV, DVD/MP3 player, sound system, sitting/library area including a buffet table and refrigerators. Just forward of the salon area there is an outdoor shaded sitting area complete with comfortable cushioned benches. This is a peaceful place where you can sip your afternoon tea while the vessel is cruising and take in the beautiful colours of the Indian Ocean.

The main deck also includes a dive equipment rental/storage area and the swim platform at the back of the main deck (with two fresh water showers). There is also a specialised camera table in the outdoor area and a power charging station at the entrance.
