About This Boat

For those whole love the sea, come to Maldives!

I suggest that you see these islands by taking a cruise; according to your needs, take your pick of the boat you prefer, but you should definitely see the Maldives by boat! My boat is available for exclusive charter for small group of 6 people  with 3 double rooms for as low as USD $150 per person. Maximum  can be on board 12 people with 6 double rooms

My houseboat the "Flying Fish" is 85ft long and fully renovated in year 2009. On board my houseboat, the Flying Fish, my guests' Maldivian dreams become a reality. Breathing the salty ocean air, dining outdoors with a rich buffet which combines Italian and Maldivian gastronomic culture. Diving, surfing, snorkeling and relaxation, far away from resorts and other boats…

The Flying Fish

In 2004, I met Mr. Abdulla Hameed, Director of the Panorama Maldives company and owner of two boats. Of the two boats I had chosen the “Flying Fish”because it was on that boat that I had the strongest feelings. Feelings of home, of my houseboat in the Maldives. I never dreamed of a mansion but of a house, my house. I wanted to wake up and jump into the sea, to meet the ocean with my body every time that a new seascape brought forth the desire. Breathe in the ocean air, eat outdoors and not be locked in a cocoon-like environment with air conditioning, or even worse, with a limited view from the portholes. I had all of these sensaztions only on board the Flying Fish. Together with Hameed, we slowly started working on this adventure together - believing in the dream and having mutual trust. With 20 years of experience, Hameed is the logistics support on ground, while on board I make my guest's Maldivian dreams come true.

The Kitchen

The guests' day is marked by, besides the rythm of the various activities, the meals which are buffet style and are a combination of Italian and Maldivian culinary culture. In the morning, for breakfast there may be sweet rolls, croissant and cakes or roshi and mashuni, which would be the typical Maldivian breakfast. At lunch and dinner, spaghetti, pasta and rice are alternated with curries. Afternoon tea and coffee are served with whatever my imagination and the cooks' fancy inspire!
