At 52m in length, Solitude One is a huge and spacious steel-hulled liveaboard which cuts an imposing figure moving around the islands of Palau. Up to 22 divers can be easily accommodated in 10 cabins on cruises of 6 or 9 nights.

The huge dimensions of this Palau liveaboard mean that you will never feel cramped and everything has a bright and roomy air. The cabins and ensuite bathrooms are larger than most liveaboards and the saloon, outdoor shaded areas and sun deck also enjoy an impressive amount of space. If you want to be sociable you can but equally if you want to find a quiet spot for a bit of ... er ... solitude, then that is always possible too.

Solitude One has a number of excellent features that very few other liveaboards can boast. The cabins all have a flat screen TV with USB media support (so you can enjoy your own entertainment) and a networked system so you can access the library of movies and TV shows. The electrical sockets are universal and have USB charging ports. Taller guests, for whom liveaboard boats can sometimes be (quite literally) a headache, literally, will appreciate the added headroom throughout and the extra long mattresses. Features that photographers will love include 2 camera rinse tanks, air gun and special towels for cameras, plus of course the digital studio with computer stations and power surge protection.

Diving is conducted from 2 tenders which come equipped with medical oxygen, first aid, GPS navigation and VHF radios. Equipment rental includes a dive computer and lost diver device. All of this adds to the sense that you are in good hands with the crew of Solitude One.
