At 45 metre long and built in 2019 with a steel hull, Hammerhead 2 is one of Egypt's most modern and highest quality liveaboards. It operates 1 week Red Sea diving safaris for up to 32 divers in the Sinai Peninsula, the southern marine parks, and the Deep South of St John's and Abu Fendira.

This super yacht has 5 decks, making it very spacious even when at full capacity, and has the best panoramic views around. Yet it's sleek and low profile make it very stable in the waves. The upper and sun decks are where guests can enjoy the sea breeze and fresh air, and are designed to be able to seat all guests at the same time. There are huge and comfortable couches, cushions and pillows so guests can enjoy tanning in the Egyptian sunshine. Guests can also unwind in the Jacuzzi, enjoy the open air bar, and make use of the guest bathroom.

The cabins all have en-suite bathrooms and are among the largest in the Red Sea diving industry, with standard cabins on the lower and upper decks, as well as upper deck suites with panoramic views. A twin-machine guest laundry service is available. On the main deck is a large saloon with modern interior design, wi-fi, TV and sound theatre system, and a coffee corner and dining area where guests can enjoy delicious meals with outstanding seaviews.

Diving operations are conducted from twin 6.5m speedboats with 85 HP motor engines. The dive deck has 36 slots for scuba diver equipment. The area is designed to ensure that divers can move around safely, comfortably and freely. Nitrox is available and tanks are filled with 4 air hoses. It also has 2 bathrooms for guest use.
