G’day friends,

we are proud to introduce the MV Carpe Vita Explorer, our brand new luxury surf charter boat in Maldives (Male and Central Atolls) – designed and built for those of you that would like to enjoy a full service luxurious surf boat charter. This boat is as good as it can get on a surf charter, and it might as well be the best and most comfortable surf holiday of your life! The prices we are offering right now are special introductory rates and are never to be repeated – starting at just AUD 2345 per person for 7 nights!

This 38.2m long and 10.4m wide cruiser has 10 spacious, comfortable and luxurious cabins that fit a maximum of 20 people, giving them more than plenty of space, privacy and comfort. However, you only need a group of 12 to have the boat as an exclusive charter.
The boat has 4 levels:

Lower deck

The 6 standard cabins are on the lower deck, along with engine room, 2 separate staff cabins and crew compartment. The cabins have 1 queen-size bed and super single bed, desk/chair, dresser, private en-suite bathrooms with showers. All standard cabins have portholes.

Outside in front of the lounge area, there is another sitting area in the shade with comfortable cushions, perfect for chilling out with a beer between surfs:
