MV Giamani Liveaboard: Details

Dive Race Liveaboard

The Giamani is a 24m (80ft) steel vessel built in Phuket by an Italian boat builder. She has an interesting look about her, a nice style, especially compared to the common wooden South-Thai style boats there are so many of here.

Her Accommodation

Giamani is unique in that she has a little bit different setup on her cabins than most of the other boats. She has four deluxe cabins on her main deck which take either two or three passengers in twin beds with en suite bathrooms. Two of the deluxe cabins have double bed as well as two twin beds. Two of the deluxe cabins have bunk beds and a single twin on the other side of the room. Her two standard cabins are up top and also have twin beds, but these share one bathroom between them.

The deluxe cabins can be booked by two or three people. If you book two people only, you pay a bit more than if you book three. Each deluxe cabin has its own air conditioning unit, en suite bathroom and the cabin door opens to spectacular sea views. All cabins are air conditioned.

The Saloon

Enjoy the air conditioned saloon for watching a movie, playing back your digital images from that day’s dives, or browse through our extensive library of marine books.

On the upper deck, there is an outdoor relax area on the stern, made popular from Giamani's sister ship the Colona. The dining area is on this deck as well.

Dive Deck

The dive deck is spacious with camera tables and rinse tanks making this an ideal boat for serious photographers.

On the main deck all meals are served buffet style, the food is plentiful and diverse, Thai cuisine and International dishes are served, special diets can be catered for if we know in advance.

Our ice making machine ensures you can enjoy chilled drinks while watching the sun set and our onboard freezers means ice cream can be enjoyed after a hot day. MV Giamani has a full complement of safety equipment making her a spacious, safe and diver-friendly boat.

Giamani offers a nice selection of four-day and six-day Thailand itineraries, as well as longer 9-day itineraries to both Thailand and the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (Burma).
