MV Sawasdee Fahsai Liveaboard

MV Sawasdee Fasai is a large and luxurious purpose-built scuba diving liveaboard boat, and the newest addition to our fleet. The boat has just undergone a full refit in August & September 2016 in preparation for the upcoming Similan Islands diving season. With a steel hull and air-conditioned en-suite cabins, guests are guaranteed to enjoy safe and comfortable 4D4N dive cruises at Thailand’s best dive sites around the Similan & Surin national marine parks. We dive the best dive sites in the area based on conditions that day. We normally do four dives each day except on the last day where we do two dives before we head back to Khao Lak. Please see our itinerary for more details.

Enjoy fully serviced dive trips and first class facilities including A/C rooms, NITROX availability , traditional Thai style decoration, comfortable living area and entertainment facilities including flat screen TV, DVD player and WiFi in selected areas.

MV Sawasdee Fasai is 37 meters long and can accommodate up to 26 guests in air-conditioned cabins, most of which have private en suite bathrooms. During the summer of 2016 MV Sawasdee Fasai had a thorough refurbishment and refit.

Starting with the cabins, MV Sawasdee Fasai has 13 cabins, each accommodating two guests. On the boat’s upper deck there are two large master cabins and five deluxe cabins. The masters sit at the front of the boat with good views of the ocean. Each master cabin has a large double bed and en suite bathroom. The deluxe cabins also have en suite bathrooms and accommodate guests in twin bunk beds.

On the boat’s lower deck are four standard cabins and two budget cabins. All of them are air conditioned. The three budget cabins share a bathroom that has hot & cold shower and wash basin. MV Sawasdee Fasai’s standard cabins can be configured to have one large bed for couples or twin beds for friends or solo guests who will be paired with a same-sex other. The standard cabins have porthole windows and private en suite bathrooms with hot & cold water showers. Each guest will be supplied with one large and one small towel and toiletries.
