One of the best hull in the world…

Her story:

Her hull was designed by Jacques d’Unienville, naval architect and pioneer of big game fishing in Mauritius. Jacques has designed and built most fishing boats on the island. His latest design in the late 80s was a hull of 42 feet of which there exist twenty copies.

With exceptional sea-keeping, this hull offers the advantage of comfort and, vitally important these days, efficient fuel consumption.

All comfort for divers on board

Converted into a dive boat (oxygen kit on board), Ekina offers diving trips even more enjoyable, thanks to a great platform for an easy launching in the sea, a large scale for an outing without difficulty, enough space for circulating, relax and not feel cramped, toilets available, fresh water to rinse yourself and two skippers who watch over you.

At night, Ekina is equipped with LEDs and projectors for unforgettable safe moments.
