Duke of York

The Duke of York was built and launched in the Maldives in 2010. The 36-meters long and 11-meters wide ship boasts 4 levels with indoor parquet flooring and teak on the main deck, is accompanied by a comfortable dhoni used for diving, snorkeling, fishing, marine activities and to land on sand banks/desert islands. Along with the more traditional diving techniques we are able to offer cruises  with the assistance and material to dive with rebreathers. Onboard NITROX is free of charge.  Also offered now is complimentary use of SUP's & kayaks and a free trial of the new underwater scooters (after the trial it is charged).

​There are a total of 11 cabins onboard, hosting a maximum of 24 guests. The large air-conditioned indoor saloon of the Duke of York has a bar offering a wide choice of soft drinks and spirits and 2 comfortable sofas, which become a meeting and relaxing place for those wishing to listen to music, watch a movie or read a book. Occasionally, for special evenings, thanks to its Dolby Surround TV-Stereo system the saloon even turns into a dancefloor.

The common open-air spaces are on three decks and offer large areas furnished with sun loungers, cushions and sun mats, both in the shade and in the sun. The decks allow guests to enjoy the breathtaking Maldivian scenery, both when sailing and while relaxing when the yacht is moored in the lagoons for the night.

These expeditions have been specifically timed to coincide with the most productive monsoon winds and lunar currents, which strongly influence the movements and feeding habits of reef manta rays. The aim of this trips is to use the knowledge of Manta Trust experts to find these feeding aggregations and allow the guests to experience the wonder of immersing yourself amongst a feeding frenzy of these gentle giants.

On this expedition we will explore the pristine and rarely visited northern atolls of Baa, Raa and Lhaviyani diving on untouched reefs and looking for poorly studied manta ray populations. A trip designed especially for adventurers looking for something new and rarely offered in the Maldives!
