Yakouta Dahabeya is a luxury sailing vessel that cruises the Nile. Powered by the wind, the Dahabeya translated to “Golden Boat” in Egyptian. They were originally used by kings to travel on the Nile. Unlike the cruise ships, dahabeyas can berth at any suitable place on the banks of the Nile.
Yakouta Dahabeya features six cabins each with en suite facilities, air-conditioning, panoramic windows, in-cabin safe and mini-bar. The Sun Deck is ideal place to sunbath, read under the awning or relax in the open air Jacuzzi. The Salon is the place to meet other guests for drinks at the bar before dinner or late into the evening. The dining room serves a wide range of dishes including local Egyptian cuisine.
