MV Addiction

MV Addiction is owned, operated and skippered by surfers, for surfers! They offer you guided surfing charters to the Mentawai Islands and North Sumatra giving you all the opportunity in the world to surf the kinds of waves you want.

MV Addiction is capable of 28 knots and for you 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've finished breakfast, the crew will have you on a new wave picking up swell from the other direction.

Tons of space on-board - 24 metres long and 8 metres across the beam means that this vessel is amongst the largest vessels in the Mentawai's. There are 5 guest cabins on-board 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 outdoor lounge and dining areas to just kick back and watch the surf, or enjoy dinner as the sun goes down! Most importantly - board storage - there's rack space on-board for up to 40 boards and that's in the shade!

MV Addiction is a commercially constructed catamaran and has all the safety features to 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 a 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.

MV 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, then this is the charter for you!​
