Maldives Aggressor II

The 41 metre Maldives Aggressor II is built and powered for comfort, safety and stability. She is diesel powered and cruises at 12 knots, has a beautiful spacious salon, sundeck, chaise lounges, deck chairs, bar, grill, and a complete photo/video centre. Maldives Aggressor II accommodates 22 passengers in 11 staterooms.

Much of the diving in the Maldives is drift diving. Due to this, all dives are made from a beautiful, custom built diving dhoni that is 18 metres / 60 feet in length. The dhoni will not anchor but will follow the divers from the surface. There is ample space on the dhoni for divers, their equipment, photography equipment, hot water, a full bathroom and 5 compressors.
