Description

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

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 Star has beautiful teak decks,  3 masts and 5 magnificent Bermuda sails and nine fully air-conditioned, en-suite cabins. On board facilities are spacious and well appointed. 

What you can expect

SY Sea Star is sleek and luxurious. She is owned by Silhouette Cruises, based in the Seychelles, who were founded in 1997. They offer some of the most satisfying ways to enjoy an adventure cruising the wonderful islands of the Seychelles – the ‘Jewel of the Indian Ocean’.

The Seychelles offer a rich abundance of marine life. Everything from the ocean giants – the Whale Shark – which is known to circumnavigate the waters on occasion between June and the year end, to intricate Nudibranchs - A Diver's Paradise. So, whether you’re blown away by the multiple colours of the large schools of Tropical Fish, or you’re in search of a Stingray, the Seychelles provides an amazing diving experience.

At 40m long, the triple-masted MY Sea Star is marginally shorter than her sister vessel the Sea Bird. However, she’s equally well-trimmed and exceptionally well laid out and always feels spacious and inviting. She has five sails in a Bermuda Sails configuration. In addition she has twin 500hp engines capable of powering her 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 Star has comfortable wood-trimmed accommodation for 18 guests onboard plus her 9 professional crew. There are 9 cosseting cabins onboard with a choice of essentially two layouts.

The first cabin option features a Double bed for couples sharing. The second option features a Double bed with additional Single bed. However, Sea Star has an ace up her sleeve in that there is also a ‘Honeymoon Cove’ for those couples wanting more space and a special experience on their diving adventure.

Every cabin has air-conditioning, private en-suite bathroom facilities and is wonderfully decorated for your comfort.  The boat's policy is that cabins will not be shared with a stranger.

The Salon/Lounge area offers TV/DVD, stereo, ice-machine and washing/drying facilities. Or it’s just simply somewhere pleasant to sit in air-conditioned comfort and read a book.

There is a covered ‘Deck Lounge’ outside at the stern of the vessel where you can unwind with a cold beer at the end of the day as the sun sets. There are also multiple Sun-decks for sun-worshippers around the vessel ensuring there is always ample space to relax, sprawl out and soak up those rays!

There are Snorkeling and Swimming opportunities throughout the voyage and Kayaks onboard too. There really is no excuse for not getting in the water.

ABOARD THE S.V. SEA PEARL YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM A BUFFET OF FRESH AND ENERGY DRIVING FOOD

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 that there is enough strength for the following dives!

The Sea Star has comfortable social zones. Meals are served in the Salon where passengers also will find cozy couches to relax comfortably in between dives.
