MV Leyla Sultan

Price  Standardised price indication based on daily rates, to allow easy comparison between products  


MV Leyla Sultan offers something a little bit different from many of the larger Maldives liveaboards. She is a traditional Turkish Ketch and therefore a dive trip onboard her feels as much like a sailing cruise around the atolls, as it does an exploration of the Maldives' best dive sites.

Length: 24 metres / 79 foot
Beam: 6 metres / 21 foot
Cruise: 9 knots
Divers: 10
The Maldives liveaboard, Leyla Sultan

With 5 cabins catering to a maximum of 10 guests only, there is an added sense of exclusivity on board and can only be booked as a full charter or by groups of 6 and more. All cabins are air conditioned and with private en-suite bathrooms. Other facilities include the saloon which is where you can entertain yourself on the computer or with the TV, DVD player and music system.

There is not a huge amount of room on board since this is a boat designed for a maximum of 10 but there is still plenty of seating and lounging space indoors and out. The interior of the boat is beautifully wooden-paneled throughout, so if you like a touch of class and want to explore Maldives diving at its best without breaking the bank, then maybe Leyla Sultan is the right choice for your group.
