The Solita comfortably accommodates twenty-seven guests in easy seating on the flybridge, rear and front decks. Beneath the spacious deck are the beautifully handcrafted teak interiors of a lounge room, fully-equipped pantry, two cabins with attached toilets cum shower. The twin 145 hp diesel engines from John Deere have a cruising speed of up to 10 knots per hour. In her two decades of sailing, the Solita has hosted private parties for filmstars like Amitabh Bachchan, official events for heads of state - and she has even been the most beautiful 'white wedding horse' for celebrity restaurateur A.D. Singh.
Raise anchor while the sun is gentle for the active morning cruise and look for humpbacked dolphins that regularly accompany and keep pace with us as we cruise along the sun drenched beaches of Candolim, Calangute and Baga.
Drop anchor in a sheltered bay and dive in for a cooling swim. You could have a light but filling lunch after to round off a spectacular morning.
A mellow sunset cruise - perfect for a very special date, or to invite friends and watch how the sea breeze and gently lulling waters inspire laughter and conversation. Sample cocktails made by our trained bar staff and dine under the stars on delicious homemade Goan food.
Be lulled to sleep by the gently-lapping waters in the Solita’s sumptuous, en-suite cabins that are perfect for couples looking for a uniquely romantic experience as well as families.
The aft cabin is more spacious, with a double bed and a single bed that could be used as a day bed or by a single child. The en-suite bathroom also features a shower. The front cabin is cosy and fun for being in the bow of the boat and will delight younger children with its secret nook-like feel.
Take to the quiet of the backwaters of the Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary to watch waders and aquatic birds grabbing a snack. We often see white-breasted kingfishers perched on a convenient branch, Brahminy kites and fishing eagles circling the skies, cormorants drying their feathers, and herons and sandpipers wading along the shores.
