Our Private Fleet...

By now regular readers of this blog and followers of ours on social media will have seen many photos and videos of our private fleet, Nkanlindau and uShaka. However, not many know the exact specifications of each boat as well as what it offers to our guests. Today we change that! Below is everything you’ll need to know to make an informed decision when visiting the Seychelles and making a booking. 


Nkalindau it a beautiful Foutane Pajot Eleuthera 60 Catamaran, and is our flagship vessel. Measuring 18.28m (or 60 ft) in length, this 4 bedroom luxury yacht is the ideal size for a large family or even 2 medium sized families. It sleeps 8 adults and 2 children. Whilst possessing engines large enough to get wherever you need to go in less windy conditions, the true beauty of Nkalindau becomes apparent when the 110 square metre sail is up and she’s doing what she does best. Equipped with a fully qualified crew (including a chef), time spent aboard is truly a 5 star experience. 


Nkalindau Excursion Options

Day Excursions

Enjoy a full day aboard this beautiful vessel, launching from our base on Mahe Island at 08h00, you will embark on a journey to the St. Anne Marine Park followed by the ever popular Beau Vallon and Anse Royale (please contact us for more information on these places). Included on your excursion are a fully qualified and trained crew, all water and soft drinks, as well as a light breakfast and lunch. We will return at 17h00. 

Inner Islands – Live Aboard

An experience like no other, spend 7 days aboard Nkalindau touring the inner islands of Seychelles. Wake up in a new location every morning; spend each day on a different island exploring, sight-seeing, kayaking in the still turquoise waters, or just relaxing on a quiet beach or aboard the boat. The choice is entirely up to you; our job is to provide you with those choices. Included in the charter are a fully qualified and trained crew, full board, soft drinks, airport transfer, harbour fees, local taxes, and fuel. 

Ille Platte – Live Aboard

This will be an experience of a lifetime for the fishing or diving enthusiast. We will take you to Ille Platte, an island situated a few hundred kilometres from Mahe, for an unspoilt and very private fishing or diving experience like no other. Live onboard for 7 days, enjoy the spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and experience something very few people have! Included in this charter are a fully qualified and trained crew, full board, soft drinks, airport transfer, harbour fees, local taxes, and fuel. 


uShaka is a Riviera 43 Open Flybridge luxury fishing yacht. Measuring 14.46 metres in length (48 ft) and enough horsepower to get you through the rough patches or to where the fish are biting, uShaka is a fisherman’s dream. Sleeping 6 people, it is luxurious enough to impress even the most selective of people, and rugged enough to offer a proper deep sea fishing experience. Forget those bad holiday fishing experiences on shaky and uncomfortable boats; a fishing excursion with uShaka in the Seychelles is an experience you will remember for all the right reasons!
