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

The Dhoni Stella 1 can be chartered for up to ten days, accommodating groups of all kinds, from new divers to dive pros.
Onboard Over Reef
Dhoni Stella 1 offers two spacious cabins featuring welcoming decor and all the comforts of a floating boutique hotel. At the bow, you'll find a generous open-air dining room with comfortable cushioned seating, ideal for al fresco meals with a sea breeze. Three delicious meals are served each day, with custom menus selected by each charter group. Complimentary coffee, tea, snacks, and fresh exotic fruit are offered to help guests keep their energy levels up, and alcohol is sold once each day's adventures are done. Two sun decks are available at the stern and above the wheelhouse, with loungers and plenty of room to relax.
Diving and activities
Guests of all kinds will find Dhoni Stella 1 well-equipped for adventure, with everything needed to make the most of their time in the Maldives. Diving and snorkelling are conducted from the aft platform or a custom tender, depending on the site. Rental equipment of all kinds can be arranged, and guests are free to choose how much or little hands-on guiding they prefer as a part of their charter agreement. Each of this vessel's custom itineraries allows for exploration both above and below the waves, combining visits to legendary watersports sites with laid back pursuits like island hopping.
