The Huey 1 is a 27-metre ex-customs patrol vessel customised for surf charters.
About Huey 1
The Huey has completed over 15 seasons in the Mentawais making it one of the most experienced vessels in the region, with owner Sooly and his highly skilled staff having over 25 years experience travelling through Indonesia and its waters.
The regular Mentawai charter runs for 10 days and 11 nights with most of the traveling being done at night to maximise surf time.
The Huey can accommodate up to 11 guests upon request with all cabins having ducted and split system air-con. The Huey has been fully set up to make your surf trip as comfortable as possible with luxuries like a dedicated TV room with full surround sound, satellite TV and a library of 800 movies for your down time.
On deck, there is a huge shaded area out with hammocks perfect for chilling after a day of epic surf. The dining area also on the deck provides views of the surf and scenery. Included in the charter are your transfers, 3 incredible meals, 6 pack of Bintangs per day, full use of amenities, camera equipment so bring your hard drive to take all your pics home, unlimited use of the speed boats to access surf breaks, and your Mentawai taxes. It is also possible to use the satellite phone and for extra beers or wine will come at your own cost.
The Huey has just added a brand new 7.2-meter aluminum speed boat to its arsenal and by all accounts it is a weapon, designed and built by the man himself, Sooly!
