MV Eco Blue is a 32m wooden-hulled Maldives liveaboard taking up to 20 guests around the best of the central Maldives atolls, as well as trips to the northern and southern atolls.

This liveaboard is a comfortable, yet affordable home from which to dive the Maldives. The interior, including the 11 cabins, features wood panelling throughout. Outdoor relaxation spaces, including shaded and sun exposed areas, have soft outdoor lounge seating and sturdy bean bags. The air-conditioned saloon/dining area comes complete with audio-visual entertainment systems and a library of books. You can also enjoy paid use of the Wi-Fi on your device. Other interesting features include a bar with beer on tap and a Lavazza coffee bar.

On the diving side you can enjoy the accompanying dive dhoni where equipment is stored and tanks are filled. It features both air and nitrox compressors plus oxygen, 15 litre tanks for rent and warm water showers. Photographers will appreciate the camera rinse tank of the dhoni, plus the saloon’s charging station with individual compartments. For budget-conscious travellers, a week-long Maldives trip on board MV Eco Blue liveaboard could be the best way to dive in paradise without breaking the bank.
