Macaronis Marine Operation

Our recently purchased 11.5 meter x 3.5 meter aluminum power Cat – ‘Surfalot’, is powered by Twin 300 hp outboard engines and can carry 20 passengers with surf boards and luggage, ideal for guest transfers to and from surrounding ports, dive and surf expeditions, and as a safeguard to provide emergency evacuation. This vessel is exceptionally stable due to its twin hull design and has a top speed of 35 knots and cruising at 28 knots.

‘Surfalot’ – The Ultimate Surf , Dive & Explore Vessel

 

Plenty of seating & grab rails for Comfy travel

 

 

Luggage is stowed in the bow, below deck and roof racks are installed for surfboards. The roof and bow are spacious spots to relax, providing great vantage points for photography. The rear ladder makes it easy to step on board from the water. A blue-tooth stereo system allows guests to play their own music while watching the surf. Surfalot is fully decked out with bathroom, state of the art navigation / communications equipment and anchor winch.

Macaronis Resort also operates smaller aluminum speedboats and longboats that always carry radios and other safety equipment, as well as spare fuel and parts at all times. Marine operations are taken seriously to ensure safety and comfort for all guests.
