Enjoy the adventure and excitement of a multi-activity liveaboard or relax on board this impressive modern sailing yacht S.Y. Sea Bird

Combine the elegance of a sailing experience with the natural beauty and charm of the Seychelles archipelago, its endemic wildlife and colourful marine life, to create a memorable island hopping experience.

The modern and comfortable sailing yacht Sea Bird has beautiful teak decks, magnificent Bermuda sails and nine fully air-conditioned, en-suite cabins. On board facilities are spacious and well appointed. 

What you can expect

Silhouette Cruises, based in the Seychelles, were founded in 1997. With their fleet of sailing vessels they offer some of the most stylish, elegant and comfortable ways to enjoy a cruise of wonderful islands of the Seychelles. SY Sea Bird is one of their stunning fleet.

One of the gems of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles are made up of a group of some 115 islands nestling in the clear, azure blue waters. The healthy tropical reefs and granite walls of the Seychelles are home to an abundance of marine life. So, whether you’re blown away by the myriad colours of the large schools of tropical fish – Butterfly fish, Snapper and Batfish – or you’re in search of a majestic Eagle Ray or Shark, the Seychelles provide an unforgettable diving experience.

The twin-masted MY Sea Bird is 42m long and 8.5m in beam – the largest of the fleet. She has four sails in a Bermuda Sails configuration but with an engine capable of easing her through the waves at a cruising speed of 9 knots. Sea Bird was substantially re-designed in 2007 improving her layout and configuration and making her an opulently trimmed, logically laid-out boat to dive from.

Sea Bird has comfortable accommodation for 18 guests onboard plus her 9 professional crew.

There are 9 cosseting cabins onboard with a choice of two layouts. The first cabin option features a Double bed for Couples sharing. The second option features a Double bed with additional Single Bunk bed. There are 3 cabins with a Double bed and 6 with a Double bed with Single bunk option – depending on your preference. As you would expect, every cabin has air-conditioning to maintain a comfortable temperature for a healthy night’s sleep and, also, private en-suite bathroom facilities.  The boat's policy is that cabins will not be shared with a stranger.

When not the cabin there is an air-conditioned Bar/Lounge/Dining Salon. Here you can relax and take advantage of the TV/DVD, stereo, ice-machine and washing/drying facilities as you wish.

At the stern of the vessel outside is a covered ‘Leisure Area’ where you may relax with a drink or mingle with other guests. Or, if preferred, there’s a two-tier Sundeck at the Bow of Sea Bird. It’s a spacious area to lie and tan on your surface intervals between dives.

Still scratching around for something to do? There are Kayaks onboard on which you may go exploring during parts on your amazing voyage.

The onboard Chef with keep you well nourished with a fine selection of local Creole dishes and Western cuisine. Beer and wine is also available onboard for when the day’s diving is completed and you unwind while taking in the breathtaking vista.


We serve a combination of International and authentic Creole cuisine, the ships concept is holistic in that besides offering great diving in the the Seychelles it also wants to provide a great above water experience of which the food offering plays a crucial part, they believe that a great meal crafted with care and love ensures there is enough strength for the following dives!

S.Y. Sea Bird has comfortable social zones. Meals are served in the salon, where passengers also will find cozy couches to relax comfortably in between dives.


The company has recently expanded even further and undertakes a variety of Oceanographic Research and Monitoring Missions, and is also available for select expeditions for tourists.
