SY Diva Andaman Details
The SY Diva Andaman offers fantastic journeys into the past aboard a classic sailing yacht. During the tour you will appreciate our broad range of activities and be delighted by our fine Thai, Asian and international cuisine with world-renowned Thai hospitality and sense of service. Most other boats in the Phuket area have cooks; we have a chef and she lives up to actual four or five star standards of meals and presentation. The boat features two specially designed wine 'cellars' to keep wine at the correct temperature in the tropics. The chef will surprise you with such delicacies as foie gras prepared in front of your eyes. Nothing about this vessel, crew or trip is ordinary.
Besides a relaxing luxury cruise with idyllic panoramas, you will also enjoy our broad range of activities included in our package, such as scuba diving under professional guidance for certified divers, island touring and kayaking. Within the supplementary services offered aboard you will appreciate the traditional Thai massages, a relaxing moment with a cocktail as well as a selection of fine wines and Grands Crus.
The large brand new sailing boat SY Diva Andaman is 35 meters (115ft) in length with a seven meter (24ft) beam and over 200 square meters (2200 sq. ft.) of deck area. She offers eight comfortable fully furnished cabins with marine seawater cooled air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and LCD screens with DVD players (or plug in your iPod or iPhone). She takes a maximum of 16 guests which guarantees that each have a real feeling of privacy aboard. She has six cabins with double beds and two cabins with twin beds. She has a total of 10 bathrooms or heads on board complete with hot and cold showers. She carries 4000 liters of water, but can make up to 5,000 liters per day from her water maker. You'll never go dry.
The boat was designed and built by a Belgian engineer here in Thailand. She is a schooner-rigged, classic junk-type vessel which were popular in Southeast Asia in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. She has 400 square meters of sail, with two main sails and two jibbs complete with classic shrouds. She displaces 185 tons. She has two assembled hollow masts which rise 25 meters (83ft) above the sea.
On arrival and departure, you will also benefit from our exclusive lounge in Phuket where you can relax and refresh. For transfers from/to the airport or hotels, transportation can be arranged by our staff. With that we welcome you aboard and wish you a Bon Voyage!
