The Aileoita 1, is a beautifully crafted surf charter boat, specially designed from the ground up, by a surfer for surfers, specifically for a safety, comfort, and convenience standard, which is a step above the rest. Aileoita 1, has been featured prominently in a number of Mentawai Islands related articles and features in a variety of publications and web sites all over the world. Aileoita's crew are one of the most experienced crews available with 46 years of combined experience, a track record that is second to none, and consistently deliver their guests the trip of a life time. By request, the Aileoita 1, is also available to take trips up to North Sumatra.
The standard trip duration includes 11 days of surfing - 12 nights on the boat overall, but longer, or shorter packages are available upon request.
Aileoita is a 70' x 15' custom built hard wood boat. The Aileoita is outfitted with all the amenities of home including full air conditioning, LED TV, Play Station 3, Internet (optional), DVD player, i-pod ready Amplifier, indoor & stereo speakers, fridge, freezer, radar, depth sounder, gps,VHF/HF radio, Satellite phone, 2x 220V 20 KvA generators, life jackets, flares, EPIRB, 20 person Life Raft, first aid kit, tender and outboard, a generous living room with sofas, and indoor dinning room table, 3 shaded spacious out door hang out areas including front deck, the back deck with benches, and tables, and the upper deck, with a large out door dining table, and wrap around benches.
Accommodation on board is in five private twin share cabins. Six of the 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.

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 14 foot fiberglass tender with a 25 HP outboard engine, and back up 15 hp engine.
The highly experienced crew on the Aileoita, with over 35 years of experience operating in Mentawai between them, includes the captain (Hendra), a mechanic, an incredible chef (Hengki), two deck hands, 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, Sebastian Imizcoz, or Bruno Veiga.
