Sea Shell Liveaboard, Seychelles


The SV Sea Shell is the 36m twin-masted sister yacht to the SY Sea Pearl. The SV Sea Shell’s colourful history spans nearly 100 years, when she was originally built as a pilot vessel to guide foreign ships across the English Channel. Now the S.Y Sea Shell has been renovated into a beautiful yacht offering liveaboard cruises in the Seychelles.

The S/V Sea Shell Liveaboard has 8 air-conditioned cabins with wash basins, accommodating up to 20 guests. There is an air-conditioned salon with TV, DVD Player and stereo. There is also a washer/dryer for guests to use. There is space for relaxation aboard the S.V Sea Shell Liveaboard, with an upper sun deck with a bow net for sun lovers, or a back deck lounge for those wanting to relax in the shade. The SV Sea Shell’s onboard chef will cook up delicious Creole cuisine, International dishes and BBQ’s.

The S.V Sea Shell liveaboard offers island-hopping trips around the Seychelles, and is the perfect choice for scuba divers and non-divers alike.
