The newest yacht of the Golden Dolphin Fleet is launched in August 2020. The liveaboard yacht specialises in Egypt’s southern marine parks, however it operates trips throughout the Red Sea.

Golden Dolphin IV is a huge 46m long (and 11m wide) and can accommodate 28 guests in 14 air conditioned cabins on its 3 floors, each with its own bathroom and minibar. There is a spacious and dedicated dining room on the lower deck and 2 air conditioned lounges with TV/DVD on the main and upper decks. There are also 2 large and comfortable sun decks for you to relax in a comfortable atmosphere. The liveaboard has 3 bars, so there is no excuse not to grab a drink and socialise with your fellow guests.

The yacht is powered by 2 x 2200 PS K50 Cummins engines. It has 2 generators (2 x 125 KW und 1 x 80 KW), 2 x Bauer air compressors and a Nitrox Mattai 15KW compressor, and 2 x 10.000 litre desalinators. Dives are made from the 2 x 6m 85 PS motorised Zodiacs. The boat is also rebreather- and tec- diver friendly, and there is a wide range of PADI and SSI speciality courses available onboard. For passenger safety, Golden Dolphin IV has a satellite EPIRB, 2 life rafts, a satellite phone, life jackets, oxygen, fire extinguishers, a first aid kit, and even a defibrillator.

Golden Dolphin trip prices are inclusive of most extras, which is a point worth considering when choosing a Red Sea liveaboard, there are very few extras. And with the Golden Dolphin IV, you won'r find a newer option!
