Accommodation on board is in five private twin share cabins. Six of ten large beds are wide enough to comfortably accommodate a couple, and the other four beds are large enough to accommodate large surfers. The maximum surfers allowed on board is 10 people.

Aileoita 1, has a cruising speed of 9 – 11 knots and is powered by two 180 HP Mitsubishi engines perfectly suited to attain its optimal hull speed. 2 engines = much greater safety at sea, as well as increased speed, but also higher fuel costs. When looking into different boats for your next Mentawai vacation, and how they are priced, please keep in mind that Aileoita 1, is competitively priced with several single engine boats, despite it’s higher fuel consumption.

The Aileoita has an immense back deck with wrap around benches and a roof, which also has wrap around benches, and a big out door dining table, which is great for a nice dinner with your friends, hanging out, and waiting for a bite on the trolling gear. The runabout is a 17′ fiberglass tender with 40 HP outboard engine, and 25 HP back up engine.

The highly experienced crew on the Aileoita, with over 68 years of experience operating in Mentawai between them, includes the captain, a mechanic, an incredible chef, one deck hand, a highly experienced surf guide / professional photographer who knows the surf spots, wind directions, swell directions, and secret spots like the back of his hand.

Standard Trip: The standard trip duration includes 11 days of surfing – 12 nights on the boat overall, but longer, or shorter packages are available upon request, as well as Surf Charter Boat / Kandui Villas custom combo packages.
