London: Prince William and his wife Kate, honeymooning in Seychelles, have chartered a super luxury yacht to cruise between former pirate hideouts Praslin and La Digue.

The plush boat named Sea Stream costs 26,000 pounds a week to hire, and can do top speeds of nearly 40mph. It is equipped with its own jet skis and scuba-diving gear.

"It may be the Seychelles but the area is like something out of Pirates of the Caribbean. There are tropical swamps and the most spectacular wildlife you can imagine," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

The royal couple reportedly dined on sushi, Parma ham and other delicacies during their stay on the 2006 Ferretti motor yacht. The machine is said to be the fastest luxury crewed boat for rent in the paradise island group.
