A Message from Upali Gooneratne

Seal Superyachts Sri Lanka started out at a time when very few Superyachts had ventured to discover this island of irresistible charm. We felt that it was only inevitable that Sri Lanka would establish itself as a well known destination for yachts voyaging through the Indian Ocean. Our aim was to be there at the very beginning, to help develop Sri Lanka into a premier superyacht destination.

Today, we continue to grow every year and can confidently assert that we can handle the demands of the largest superyachts.

Upali Gooneratne
General Manager


Sri Lanka – the pearl of the Indian Ocean, is a beautiful tropical island covering an area of 65,610 square kilometres (25,000 square miles), situated southeast of the Indian subcontinent and 880 kilometres to the north of the Equator.

The islands eighteen million strong population provides Sri Lanka with an intoxicating mix of cultures and diverse ethnic groups, who have been practising their unique traditions for many centuries. Whilst Sri Lanka is progressive and forward looking in its outlook, it is at the same time deeply embodied with a sense of pride in its traditions and heritage. Sri Lanka is a must-see destination on any visit to the region.

M/Y Elandess

Mr Gooneratne was extremely helpful in assisting us long before our arrival in Sri Lanka ... however after and throughout our stay in Sri Lanka itself was where Upali really was invaluable in guiding us through the inexhaustible paperwork, visas, clearance and general officialdom.

In arranging and organizing everything for Elandess, from a very sick crewmember ... supplies, transportation and foreign visas, Upali remained fully in control ... I cannot recommend Upali enough as a true professional ... and someone who I would hope to call a friend after our first visit to Sri Lanka.

M/Y Al Shoua

Motor Yacht Al Shoua cruised in Sri Lankan waters from 27th October 2017 until 23rd February 2018. During this period, the owning company assigned SEAL YACHTS SRI LANKA as our main agent and we were happy to have done so. Under the assured and knowledgeable guidance of Upali, he managed to steer the yacht past the many levels of bureaucratic challenges we encountered and on the whole managed to deliver all of our requests. This is not an easy task since Sri Lanka is still new to the standard operating procedures normally afforded to yacht's in other parts of the world.

I would not hesitate to work with Upali and his team at Seal Yachts Sri Lanka at any time in the future.

Although we only had day 5 days to enjoy your wonderful country we definitely filled the time well. Your constant assistance in arranging clearance, provisioning, helicopter flying permits, the bunkering of A1 jet fuel and obviously you excellent guides at the various inland locations made for a memorable stay.

Thank you again Seal Superyachts Sri Lanka and I'll be in touch when we return.
