Carpe Novo

Carpe Novo  started operations in March 2016 and is an upgraded sistership of the Carpe Diem, built in the Maldives by Amir Mansoor, who built the Carpe Diem and the Carpe Vita. Carpe Novo is bigger than the Carpe Diem and even slightly bigger than the Carpe Vita.  The Carpe Novo has 12 comfortable cabins of different standards divided over 3 decks. The different cabin types are junior suite (4), single suites (2) and standard (6). All cabins have individually controlled AC, safety deposit boxes, life jackets and TV screens connected to central media system and their own private bathrooms. The electricity voltage on board is of 220V and the plugs are of multinational type. The boat, like her two “sisters”, caters for dedicated scuba diving, wave surfing and fishing trips for both individuals as well as groups. Carpe Novo, like the Carpe Diem will provide standard 3 dives a day on her dedicated scuba diving trips versus 4 on the Carpe Vita.
