Part of the prestigious Yacht Maldives family, the Dhoni Stella 2 is one of the Maldives’ most comfortable small group charter options, offering tailor-made charter safaris focused on scuba diving and snorkelling. This yacht is best suited to couples, friends, and families travelling together - with cosy yet luxurious cabins and common areas that encourage spending time together.

This comfortable solid wood sailing vessel cruises the Maldives' calm, turquoise waters year round with suggested itineraries based on the seasons and weather.

At the bow, you'll find a generous open-air dining room with comfortable cushioned seating, ideal for al fresco meals with a panoramic view. Three sumptuous meals are served here each day, with custom menus selected by each charter group. Complimentary coffee, tea, snacks, and fresh exotic fruit are available to help guests keep their energy levels up, and alcohol is sold once each day's adventures are over.
