The Ultimate Maldives Yachts team is passionate about exploring the Indian Ocean’s most compelling coastlines. We believe that chartering a private yacht in the Maldives is the best way to get off the beaten track in this celebrated island nation. With expert knowledge of exploratory cruising in remote destinations, our dedicated team creates unique charter adventures tailored to your wishes.
Our handpicked collection of luxury and expedition charter yachts offers an unparalleled way to discover the secrets of the Maldives from the comfort of your own luxurious hideaway on the waves. All of our yachts combine modern comforts with a skilled crew including an expert captain, a cruise host and a private chef.
The North and South Male Atolls are the most developed in the Maldives, while the Baa Atoll is home to Hanifaru Bay, where mantas and whale sharks congregate at certain times of the year. The Noonu Atoll and the Raa Atoll are home to some of the more remote luxury resorts in the Maldives.
There are plenty of islands further afield to discover in the northern reaches of the Maldives – this region features in Maldivian history as one of the rulers who fought against Portuguese colonisation in the 16th century lived here. In the far north, visitors will find protected marine zones, shipwrecks and underwater caves, ideal for divers.
The central atolls comprise Dhaalu, Thaa, Laamu, Meemu, Faafu. Thaa and Laamu are praised for their consistent barrel surfing and fishing, not to mention some sensational diving.
In the Ari Atoll, Fenfushi is fascinating for those in search of the cultural side of the Maldives; its inhabitants were skilful sculptors and carvers of coral and their art is still to be seen on the finely decorated walls of the island’s mosque and the tombstones in the nearby cemetery. Divers will love this region’s abundance of fish and prospect of whale sharks and manta rays at the right season.
Further south lie the Huvadhoo Atoll and the Addu Atoll, which are often considered as the most beautiful in the Maldives with their lack of development, stunning natural wonders and prolific coral reefs. Visitors can experience local culture in some of the far-flung villages in this region.
The Eastern side of Huvadhoo is a paradise in the true sense of the word for underwater aficionados and fishermen – during the dry monsoon practically all the narrow passes along the atoll’s perimeter are ideal for current dives, with clear visibility and congregating fish. Advanced surfers can take to Beacons and Tiger Stripes, two of the most powerful waves in the Maldives.

What Ultimate Yachts’ partners say
"During the years I’ve worked with Ultimate Indonesian Yachts I have been mighty impressed with the efficiency in turning quotes and questions around as well as being extremely flexible with my rather tricky clients! They seem to have the patience of saints... Eddie will “tell it how it is” and that honesty I appreciate. It’s also good to work with a small team who are happy to go above and beyond. No problems at all in recommending the Ultimate Indonesian Yachts team!"
"I have worked with the Ultimate Indonesian Yachts team for quite some time now and have had many clients travel with them. I must say they are a pleasure to work with and my clients always return with glowing feedback and wonderful holiday memories. I can happily vouch for and recommend their services."
"I have been working with Annie and Eddie for a number of years now and we also jointly managed yachts for charter during my time at MYSEA. You can be sure that you are in very professional and expert hands. We worked with the MYBA contract, also adapting things to suit local regulations when needed, and always with client/owner interests as a priority. Ultimate Indonesian Yachts are my go-to contact for anything in Indonesia and I would absolutely recommend working with them for charters in that region. They are on the ground regularly, know all the best places to see, the local technicalities and of course the boats! In short, go for it with no reservation."
"Eddie is a really good contact and friend of ours and we have been working with him for a few years now. Predominantly, he acts as a 3rd party yacht broker to our company but also has a wealth of knowledge on diving, local partners, itinerary logistics and Indonesia in general - which we regularly call upon. His team knows a great deal about chartering yachts in these waters and we often seek his opinion on various yachts, dive crews, captains, weather patterns, dive sites, resorts and especially the more remote and obscure areas of Indonesia that less people know about. I have never had hesitations about Eddie and his team’s recommendations for my clients."
