Dahabiya Hadeel

The Dahabiya Hadeel combines the traditionally crafted sailboat of days gone by with all the modern comforts and luxuries expected in today's world. Dahabiyas were used in the days of the Egyptian Monarchy (1920's - 40's) when aristocrats and sophisticated travellers would hire the boats for weeks at a time so that they could sail from temple to temple at their own pace. Today, the Hadeel will take you slowly up and down the Nile powered by the wind in her sails and is a wonderful alternative to the large Nile cruise ships. On occasions, when there is little or no wind, the Hadeel's own tow-boat will be used to help you along. There are just 8 cabins on board, all with private en suite facilities. Due to licensing restrictions, alcohol cannot be sold on board but you can bring your own and the crew will happily store it and serve it to you without charging a corkage fee.
