Maldives Private Luxury Charter
Fascination is the perfect vessel for small groups, small family or 2 couples. This premium yacht comfortably accommodates 6 guests over 3 deluxe cabins each fitted with en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, and finished with quality bed linen.
Cruising between 10-12 knots but capable of reaching speeds of up to 20knots, we can follow the swell, surf lots of different breaks and escape the crowds!
This boat is perfect for our clients that want maximum privacy, or perhaps just to bring the whole family along to private surf trip. We will design an itinerary to suit your surf needs.
Your time on Fascination will see you kicking back in comfort, with the service of 4 highly trained staff including Captain Naseem and his 3 crew consisting of a chef, deckhand and surf guide.
MADE WITH LOVE
The director “Naseem” is a very famous Maldivian captain with a passion for the sea and for yachts.
He started his career as a captain for many international tour operators and on yachts of different sizes for more than 15 years. When he met his partner Maxine while she was on a diving vacation in the Maldives, his life changed. Moving to Monaco, working and gaining enormous experience from the famous “Monaco Yacht Club”, learning to speak French and discovered what the world of luxury yachts looks like!
Together Naseem & Maxine with her luxury fashion background created a charter company and then bought “Fascination” for a never ending vacation in the Maldives. They now share it with guests wanting an extra special Maldives experience.
Surfing and Paddling
Got a surfboard or stand up, the crew will make sure you are never too far away from those postcard-worthy waves you’ve always dreamed of. During the last decade, surfing in the Maldives has attracted many surfers from all over the world. The same swells hitting Indonesia deliver the goods to the Maldives except that the latitude is a little higher and the SE exposure has less energy. There are three main surfing areas;
- The North and South Male Atoll, the surf season runs from April to October during the South-West Monsoons. The bigger swells run from May to August with 2 to 8 ft waves on offer all season.
- Central Atoll standard waves are long and clean with size varying between 2 and 8ft as well. During southern hemisphere winter (April-October), it’s pretty much never flat.
- Southern Atolls right at the southern point of the Maldives are best for surf from February to April and from September to November, there are always waves in the area but the winds become very strong at other times of the year.
Fishing has always been the lifeblood of island nations and the Maldives is no different, this place has been dubbed the ‘fishiest’ places on the planet. Pelagic species are often the favourite target although there are a lot of reef and shallow water species that will give you a run for your money like Bonefish, Barracuda, Groper, Snapper and the king of fish, the Giant Trevally. Cruising the deep waters along the outside of the reef Yellow fin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Dolphin Fish, Wahoo, Sail Fish and Marlin all cruise these waters. If you want to fish make sure you bring plenty of your favourite lures.
