The galley is conected to the dining area, allowing for a fast and easy service.
The flybridge is now an 80 sqm sun deck. It is comfortably fitted with delightful sofas and sun loungers, and has both shaded areas and open areas. There is also a 24- hour services bar on the upper deck where you can sip a cokctail and watch the sun set over the water.
One of the best features of this Red Sea liveaboard are the diving facilities. Older or less mobile scuba divers will love the in-water easy-exit dive rail that runs around the entire stern of the boat. This rail allows divers to more easily manoeuvre to the 2 exit ladders. There are also 2 motorised Zodiacs that are often used to speed divers out the sites. The dive deck and platform are also quite spacious at 70 sqm, and nitrox is provided free of charge.
