New yacht club graces Maldivian waters
July 2017 338

Amilla Fushi has revealed its newest development the Amilla Yacht Club (AYC), firmly anchoring Amilla Fushi’s place on the international superyacht circuit. 

The AYC encompasses the island’s open to all, three-berth marina as well as the overwater signature restaurant Feeling Koi (accessible directly by speedboat), the 1 OAK Lounge and Bar, and the Board Walk [opening Q4].  Amilla Yacht Club membership is now also open – exclusively by invitation only – offering members exclusive discounts and priority access to berths, events and parties at Amilla Fushi and sister resort Finolhu.

The development of the Amilla Yacht Club and its marina facilities allows for refuelling, provisioning, maintenance and repairs (technicians can be brought from Malé), while yacht owners and their guests take some shore leave at Amilla Fushi.

The Amilla Yacht Club Marina has three berths, each with three phase shore power and water, and can accommodate yachts up to a maximum of 20 metres, with a 2 metre draft.  Larger yachts (over 20m) are also welcome to anchor outside the reef and enjoy all the Amilla Yacht Club facilities and benefits.

Yacht owners can also request a spa therapist for on-board treatments, refuelling by ship in Amilla Bay or Finolhu outer reef areas (24 hours notice), and provisions supply.

Serious seadogs can also enjoy Amilla’s HUB (Home of the Underwater Biosphere), the island’s epicentre of water-based activities offering remarkable aquatic excursions, a comprehensive Marina Biology programme, adrenaline-fuelled water sports, dazzling diving and boat charters courtesy of Dive Butler International.

As well as operating Amilla’s extensive private boat charter fleet –  including the luxuriously appointed, traditionally hand-crafted 20m Maldivian dhoni, Sloop John B and the 13m luxury cruiser Vismara – Dive Butler’s on-island team can also provide visiting yachts and superyachts with itinerary planning services throughout the Maldives; private cruise directors and scuba instructors/guides; and dive support vessels.

Amilla Yacht Club membership is by invitation only. Discretionary membership is also extended on a complimentary basis to guests booking a pre-purchased credit stay of seven nights at Amilla Fushi or 10 nights at Finolhu.
