The Nautilus One

The Nautilus One is a beautiful hand crafted vessel that was made locally in Hanimadoo located in the north of the Maldives. Although classed as a luxury vessel it still maintains the feel of a true surf charter boat with plenty of character.

The Nautilus One is run by an experienced crew who ensure the safety of all guests on board. This boat can truly claim to have been everywhere in the Maldives.

Each large air conditioned cabin has its own ensuite with hot shower and toilet.

Support Boats

We cruise with three boats in the fleet at all times. The Nautilus One, the 20m dhoni, and a 5m tender. The dhoni is great for pulling up right on the edge of the reef pass where the big boats can’t go. A dhoni is great for watching your mates surf, taking a break, changing fins or quickly getting a drink of water. You can also fill up the esky and go for a fish in comfort during the day.

We like guests to enjoy themselves, so the Nautilus is equipped with all the toys to do so. Poker chips are stacked for a night of gambling. The foosball table is great when the beers are flowing. Rods and reels are ready on the back for some easy trawling as we move from break to break. Securely store your boards in the surf racks and pump the music on the roof with the portable BOSE sound system.


The Bar

Raj is the best bartender in the Maldives and will happily serve you drinks whenever you like, day or night, he doesn’t sleep. Enjoy a cold San Miguel on tap or choose from a variety of spirits, cocktails, red and white wines. Don’t bother bringing in any duty free. The Maldives is a dry country other than Safari boats and resorts. The Nautilus One is stocked with enough alcohol to last a season so it never runs out.
