Hulhumalé Yacht ChartersTake Me Back
If you’ve ever been to the Maldives, you may have heard of Hulhumalé Yacht Marina. Its a state-of-the-art, superyacht specialist marina. It will certainly have all the luxuries you would expect in these idyllic sailing islands. The marina is due to open in 2020. However, there is already plenty of interest in buying a berth here, simply because the sailing is so good.
You can already charter a yacht and sail from Hulhumalé. The lagoon has plentiful moorings. If you charter a boat here, get ready for a “James Bond movie-style” arrival. Your plane will land on a tiny island, followed by a 20-minute transfer by Dhoni boat, to embark straight onto your yacht. Does this sound OK to you?
A man-made island
Eight kilometres from the Maldives capital city of Malè lies a new small island. Initially, the Maldives government ordered the making of an artificial isle named Hulhumalé. Using reclaimed land from the lagoon helped to meet the demand for housing and commercial development in the region. The island’s inauguration was in 2004, presided over by the Maldivian President, Maumoon Abdul Gayoom.
