Dhoni Stella

Dhoni Stella 1 and 2 are wonderful barefoot luxury private yachts. In fact, they are the first live-aboard dhonies designed on the model of the legendary Kalhuofummi, the miraculous ‘dhoni’ of the Maldivian hero, Mohammad Thakurufaanu, which escaped the more equipped boats of the Portuguese invasion of the Maldives in the second part of the 16th century.

Dhoni Stella yachts are largely built using local wood with details of simplicity and care. A cruise on Dhoni Stella is an enriching journey onboard a unique and authentic traditional boat. Amenities are carefully planned to make you feel at home and in total comfort. 

Each Dhoni Stella counts a captain, chef, and two crew members who offer the highest standards of service and safety. The Dhoni Stella team know the best spots for diving, fishing, surfing, snorkeling, and deserted island dining locations. This private, intimate boating experience is customized to each guests preferences.
