SV Sea Pearl description

SV Sea Pearl basic informations

The S.V. Sea Pearl is the oldest vessel in the Silhouette Cruises fleet, having been built in 1915 in Vlaardingen, Netherlands as a sailing-fishing vessel named "Dirk".

In 1930 she was the last sailing vessel in the Dutch Herring fleet. After decades of fishing the North Sea she was redesigned in 1991 into a schooner rigged sailing ship, sailing the Caribbean Islands and Canada under the name "Regina Chatarina".

In 1999, she was completely refitted and renamed “Sea Pearl” and delivered to Seychelles to commence charter operations around the islands of Seychelles, becoming the second vessel in the Silhouette Cruises fleet.

Sea Pearl features 8 air-conditioned guest cabins in two different categories.

Category A cabins offer a double bed with extra bunk, whereas Category B cabins feature single bunk beds for two individuals.

Each cabin has a washbasin as well as reading lights, storage cupboard and power connections for charging computers and cameras or using other electronic devices such as hair-dryers.

Bathroom facilities are compartmentalised separately from the cabins and guests share these facilities during the cruise. Cabins and bathrooms are cleaned daily by our crew.

The public areas include a main air-conditioned saloon, as well as a covered open-air back deck/leisure area, a padded sundeck and netting on the bow which serve as suspended hammocks for guests to relax and unwind.

Our service is what sets us apart from most small-ship cruises. With a mostly Seychellois crew attending to our guests, traditional Creole cuisine prepared daily and a relaxed, casual atmosphere on board, we’ve created a special brand of hospitality that is natural, authentic and true to the Seychelles. Sea Pearl is hosted by a crew of 8, to ensure our crew-to-guest ratio is always at least 1-to-2, even at maximum occupancy. The crew includes a captain, engineer, 2 deckhands, 2 stewardesses, a dive instructor and a dedicated chef.

Breakfast features fresh fruit along with one of our chef’s preparations, such as eggs or crepes, with toast, juice and tea/coffee. Buffets for lunch and dinner provide a culinary tour of the archipelago and its wide-ranging influences from Europe, Africa, South Asia and the Far East.

Meals can be enjoyed in the air-conditioned saloon for seated dining, or picnic-style on the back deck lounge area or sun deck.
