The Dahabiyyas (often spelled dahabeahs or dahabiyas) are beautifully-crafted two-masted sailboats that allow those who like serenity to explore the Nile in a small intimate sailing vessel. Sailing is under sail power much of the time (of course that depends on the winds!) . Being slower allows those on board to watch the Nile riverbanks pass by from down near the water level.
