Equator Star 1 – your luxury surf charter in the Maldives

The Equator Star 1 (previously the GTM Cruiser) has been finished early 2011. Come and enjoy this brand new Maldivian cruiser! Equator Star 1 will take you to the North & South Male Atols but it`s possible to cruise down to the Central Atolls ( Meemu, Thaa, Laamu). Surf the famous North Male waves or if it gets crowded escape to the South Male Atolls where uncrowded waves await you and your friends. Best time for a surf trip is from March till November with the most crowded months July/Aug/Sept. Before or after there`s still plenty days to surf alone here.
