Built in 2018, and at 40m, with 4 power generators and a 600 HP marine engine that generates a cruising speed of 15 knots, Princess Sara is an impressive and modern luxury liveaboard diving yacht that focuses on safaris around the Maldives central atolls.

There are 12 boat crew onboard Princess Sara, ensuring the needs of guests are always taken care of. As well as diving and snorkelling with whale sharks, manta rays and hammerhead sharks, these tours offer island hopping excursions, and plenty of opportunities to relax, either soaking in the tropical sunshine on the expansive sun deck, or cooling off in the open-air Jacuzzi. For fun seekers who like to make bit of a splash, there is also an inflatable water slide onboard. There is also a trampoline, sea canoe, and jetski and banana rides can be arranged.

With 10 cabins in 5 categories of luxury, across 3 different decks, guests have great flexibility in their accommodation and budget choices. All cabins have private bathrooms, minibar, wi-fi, TV and movie facilities. The suites and deluxe cabins also have their own Jacuzzi hottub.

All diving activities are conducted from the accompanying 70 ft (21m) dhoni, where equipment is stored and tanks are filled. It features enough space for 30 divers, toilet/shower, plus the tank compressors, emergency oxygen, and camera storage. There is also a camera rinse tank so that underwater photographers can keep their equipment in tip-top condition between dives. For those travellers seeking to explore the central atolls of the Maldives on a liveaboard that offers a little extra luxury and comfort, the Princess Sara could be the right choice.
