Steber International has just launched their fourth and largest vessel for the Fregate Island Resort in the Seychelles archipelago.

The multi-million dollar Steber 5200 (52ft) will be used for a variety of resort activities covering extended excursions, game fishing and diving.

Features include two sleeping cabins, two lounge areas, galley, two bathrooms, inflatable dinghy and crane. Additional on-deck seating is suitable for scenic tours and guest transfers from the mainland to Fregate Island and return.

The 5200 will join the fleet of three other vessels, the first of which was delivered back in 1999.

In 2016 Fregate Island took delivery of a Steber 3800 (38ft) which is being used to transfer clients between the island and mainland at present and will now expand into other resort activities.

Unlike the majority of fibreglass manufactured vessels, the hulls of the Fregate Island fleet vessels are finished in a unique Jade Mist Green colour.

The vessel will be delivered at the end of February following sea trials and final fitout.


The Seychelles archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean, north East of Madagascar and about 1600km east of Kenya. The archipelago consists of 115 islands.
