The MV White Manta Liveaboard

White Manta Liveaboard

MV White Manta replaces the older Black Manta which has been moved to dive Indonesia full time. Launched in April 2011, she is a 36 meter steel motor yacht who takes up to 24 passengers, or 26 guests on charter. She is IMO certified, very stable and seaworthy, and her twin 500hp Cummins engines makes her an ideal long range diving support vessel. MV White Manta is now Phuket's premier liveaboard diving boat and was designed by divers for divers. She boasts an enormous dive deck and spacious diving platform. Guests can dine and relax in style in our large outdoor dining area and enjoying exotic panoramic views of Thailand's tropical islands. Our large indoor saloon has a comprehensive digital multi media centre, sound system and widescreen plasma TV for your entertainment. An expansive sun-deck spans the length of the boat and incorporates lounges for those sun-worshippers. Alternatively, enjoy a soothing massage from our on-board masseuse.
