Chartering in South East Asia / Indian Ocean


Operating in South East Asia / Indian Ocean

Dhoni Stella I & II are Maldivian luxury dhonies, each with just two cabin-suites, catering for 2-6 passengers and available for private charter only. Maldives enthusiasts will experience a really unique holiday, sailing the archipelago with their family or with another couple. 
Dhoni Stella yachts are wonderful combinations of classic and modern style. Built by using mainly local wood, the finishing touches bring you back to a time of simplicity and elegance, nostalgic of the antique boats on which these cruisers were modeled; though the modern comforts of holiday luxury have certainly not been forgotten. 
Setting ourselves apart from the other cruisers available in the archipelago, where passengers share the boat with other tourists and follow a pre-planned program, Dhoni Stella guests are free to design their own cruise. You choose the destinations and activities that suit you, including: scuba diving, surfing, snorkeling, fishing, islands hopping and more.

Crew Profile

Dhoni Stella's crew members are hired in the Maldives and trained to uphold the highest standards of service in hospitality and tourism. The team combines professionals that ensure exceptional service and complete safety at sea.
Each Dhoni Stella yacht team consists of 1 captain, 1 chef, 1 steward and 1 dive guide when required. Both captains, Hameedh and Tolhath, are among the experts of the archipelago. In addition to their nautical skills, they are privy to the best spots for diving, fishing and surfing in the Maldives.
Dhoni Stella's chefs, Udaya and Anura, have cooked in the finest restaurants in Maldives and Sri Lanka for many years. They bring their breadth of experience in preparing international and traditional fare to your table each day.
The other members of our crew, our trusted stewards, bring you courtesy and attentiveness reflecting a true luxury experience. The yacht teams are led by Ahmed Nasru, a professional in the tourism industry, who coordinates their duties and works with them on board on occasion.
The manager of Dhoni Stella yachts is Max Molteni, cruise planner and yacht skipper with an intimate knowledge of the Maldives and of their underwater beauties. Max has carefully designed all Maldives itineraries offered on Dhoni Stella, and he is also the author of the Maldives Cruising Guide. With his extensive experience working in the region, the book is the most comprehensive guide to the low-lying, tropical island chain.


DHONI STELLA I accommodates up to 4 guests in 2 cabins, one with 1 double bed and the other with 2 twin beds. DHONI STELLA II accommodates up to 6 guests in 2 cabins. Both the cabins have triple capacity with 1 double bed and 1 single bed. All the cabins are individually air conditioned and have shower and toilet. Crew has a separate companionway, heads and shower. 


Myself and Kate have been to the Maldives before. It’s a wonderful place full of stunning resorts, but you probably already know that. However there is so much more to enjoy in the Maldives than just a luxury room with a powder soft white beach directly outside your door. 
Let me tell you about our holiday. I received a questionnaire about our preferences for food, drink, activities, in fact just about everything that I might want to give my opinion on. This was a nice touch. Once on board, a quick look around the boat confirmed that it is exactly as described and in fact bigger than the photos suggest. 
The food was fantastic and varied - Maldivian, Italian, English - a lot of fresh fish, fresh fruit, beautiful curries. It is quite remarkable what can be produced from such a small kitchen in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The service from the steward was exemplary, he really did make a difference. From serving breakfast in the morning, to ensuring the air conditioning in the bedroom was on at night, his attention to detail was faultless.
The boat itself has a rustic charm not found on modern super yachts. Solid and homely, it’s deceptively large compared to the photos. The bedrooms (there are two) are 5 metres x 3 metres with a small en-suite shower room that is perfectly sufficient. The dining area, which is at the front of the boat, is open, cool and features a large solid table that can seat six. At the back of the boat there is a platform that is used for diving and fishing. There is also a small dingy that is used for visiting islands and fishing in the evening. In the evening the crew tend to stay at the back of the boat giving guests complete privacy, just in case you were wondering! 
So is Dhoni Stella for you? If you want freedom, excitement, adventure and a small amount of indulgence, then yes, it probably is. I’ll put it like this. After spending 10 fantastic days on Dhoni Stella, I really don’t think I would want to be trapped on an island for a full holiday again. Would I go back? Yes, tomorrow if I could and almost certainly next year to sample the delights of what the Ari Atoll has to offer.
