Mermaid I

Mermaid I Dive and Cruise

After many years of working with different boats, we knew exactly what was needed to create the perfect diving vessel. In 1999 construction of the MV Mermaid I began in Bangkok, where she was built by an experienced and highly professional team and completed after two years. The immense effort finally paid off and this vessel became the flagship of our fleet complete with IMO certification.

The luxurious MV Mermaid I offers all amenities you can dream of. All 8 cabins are fully air-conditioned and equipped with TV & DVD player, single, twin or double bed, a large wardrobe, plenty of storage room and an en-suite bath room with hot water shower, toilet and sink. We also provide fresh bath towels daily, beach towels, bathrobes, hair-dryers, towels, soap and shampoo for your comfort.

The MV Mermaid II was built and started her duty in the year 2000. She has been constantly improved and after five years of cruising experience, we can proudly say that she is possibly the best in her class – one of the most comfortable and diver friendly liveaboards in Indonesia.

Our 8 deluxe cabins offer all the comforts you need. Deluxe cabins offer a large panoramic window. All cabins offer private en-suites with hot water showers and sink, camera-charging outlet, storage space, wardrobe and life jackets.
