Horizon II Yacht Charter, Central & Outer Atolls, The Maldives
The Yacht & Accommodations
Built in 2002, Horizon II is a modern cruising vessel that has been thoroughly refurbished and very well maintained with six comfortable, air-con cabins. Horizon II accommodates up to 12 guests in six comfortable and spacious double bed or twin bed cabins. All cabins have private hot and cold water showers and each cabin has individually controllable air conditioning and lighting.
Meals are good and plentiful, with a variety of European, Asian and seafood dishes served in the saloon or on the shaded fore-deck dining table. Horizon II is one of the least expensive boats in the Maldives, and is exceptional value for money. On-board entertainment includes DVD players, PAL / NTSC video playback, television, hi-fi stereo system and indoor board games.
Horizon II has a dinghy/zodiac, and is accompanied by a support dhoni – a traditional Maldivian boat ideally suited to shallow lagoons. The dhoni improves access to waves and anchorages and allows the group to split between breaks. And the main boat can be in a safe anchorage while the support dhoni allows extra dawn and evening surf sessions.
Every evening at five o’clock there’s a snack break with tea or coffee, sweet snacks and sandwiches. Or you can enjoy a sunset drink on the deck – Horizon II has a well-equipped bar on board, serving cocktails, whiskey, cognac, champagne, wine and beer for extra charge.
Horizon II has all the necessary safety and communications equipment including Marine Radar, VHF, Radio Telephone, mobile phone (most areas) and GPS. Electricity configuration is 220v/50Hz EU standard (with 2 silent generators). Horizon II is powered by a very quiet 280ps DOOSAN Daewoo engine.
The Captain of Horizon II is one of the most experienced skippers in the region – he really knows the local communities, the islands, reefs, breaks and surf conditions. The crew includes a chef, guest relations personnel and deck hands. They are dedicated to ensuring that our guests enjoy one of the finest surf cruise experiences in the world. You can snorkel on unspoiled reefs, catch a fish for dinner, and see parts of the country that most tourists never experience.
