Speed : MV Addiction is capable of 28 knots and that means more surf time. If you wake up in the morning and the swell has dropped you don’t have to travel most of the day at 10 knots to get to a new break. Before you have finished breakfast our crew will have you on a new wave picking up the swell from another direction.

Space : Space and tons of it. 24 metres long (80ft), 8 metres across the beam and approx 100 gross tons means Addiction is amongst the 3 largest vessels in the Mentawais. There are 5 guest cabins each with a double bed and single bunk, a large gourmet galley, dinner seating for 12 and a saloon/lounge area to die for. There are also 2 large outdoors lounge and dining areas to just kick back and watch the surf or enjoy dinner as the sun goes down.

Safety : Addiction is a commercially constructed catamaran and has all of the safety features that go with it. Unlike most others we have no accommodation in the hulls of the boat. The hulls are set up as watertight bulkhead compartments that offer maximum protection in the unlikely event of hull breach. The engine rooms are fitted with air cut off switches and a CO2 fire suppression system. The safety of our passengers and crew are all the more important to us because of the remote areas in which we operate.

Comfort : Nothing offers comfort like a large catamaran. No need for gyro controlled stabilizers here because we use the best stabilizing system around, 2 hulls and an 8 meter beam. Whether flying along at 20 knots+ or just sitting at anchor Addiction will be the smoothest ride you ever get.

Value : Addiction is a super luxury surf charter boat without the super price tag. If you value your safety, enjoy a bit of extra space and comfort but don’t want to pay top dollar, Addiction is the boat for you!
