DHONI STELLA 1
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. 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 I accommodates up to 4 guests in 2 cabins, one with 1 king bed and the other with 2 twin beds convertible into 1 double bed. All the cabins are individually air conditioned and have shower and toilet. Crew has a separate companionway, heads and shower.
