Summer Superyacht Charter: Explore the Maldives Aboard this Adventure-Ready Yacht

Equipped with water toys and a PADI dive center, the yacht is ready for Indian Ocean exploration…

Built in 2015, the 127-foot superyacht Azalea is as beautiful as the flower from which it derives its name—and it is currently available for charter in the Maldives. Equipped with PADI Gear and numerous water toys, the spacious ship is perfect for those who want to explore the ocean during the day and retire to plush accommodations at night.

The roomy master suite has an Egyptian-linen-draped bed, giant windows, and a bathroom with a deep soaking tub and marble accents. The yacht also includes two junior suites on the main deck and six twin or double cabins belowdecks. The cozy main deck is furnished with comfy couches, elegant end tables, and a large full-screen television. Outside, the deck is sprinkled with couches, umbrellas, and lounge chairs, as well as a hot tub and a covered table that seats six. Featuring a fully stocked PADI dive center, the yacht is a great fit for those who want to spend time beneath the waves. (For an additional fee, an English-speaking certified PADI instructor can be on-hand to offer assistance and teach PADI classes.) Paddleboards, water skis, and jet skis offer additional options for oceanic exploration. The yacht even features a water golf set for those who want to brush up on their game while at sea.

The charter price encompasses full meal plans, laundry service, snorkeling and fishing trips, diving, watersports, underwater photo sessions, unlimited beverages and selected alcoholic beverages, local island excursions, and free Wi-Fi. The yacht crew will also arrange complimentary airport transfer service. Azalea is available for charter in the Maldives for a starting price of around $55,000 per week. (yacht-azalea.com)
