Mangalui Charter – your luxury surf charter in Mentawai / Indonesia
Mangalui Ndulu means “Wave Searcher“ in local Nias dialect. She is a magnificent 84 ft timber sloop, custom built for the sole purpose of searching for waves. Charters are normally scheduled as 11 or 14 day trips as we`ve found over the years to be a good length of time and this usually coincides with at least one or two swells.
The Mangalui is very flexible regarding both its schedule and its charter destinations. Mangalui has a larger fuel, water , fridge and freezer cap than most allowing trips to run for a longer time and further distances – chasing waves up and down the whole Sumatran coast. Magalui can reach many different islands chains, not just the Mentawai’s . The Mangalui is not a milk run trip, we offer a real surfers voyage. “The Foxy Lady” traveling at 35knots easily with a Yamaha 200hp on the back is Mangalui `s speedboat who gets you there quickly when the wind swings or when you are in an area with a few different wave options.
The Foxy is also great for afternoon deep sea fishing…The Dive compressor in the lazarette is run by a three phase electric motor allowing quick tank refills for any qualified scuba divers that are keen to have a look at the tropical reefs below. An experienced PADI dive master in onboard to oversee those that bring their dive tickets along. All dive equipment is onboard the Mangalui.
