There are twin 1,200 hp engines to ensure journeys between the best diving sites of Myanmar are smooth & fast.
Unlike a lot other liveaboard dive boats in the Mergui Archipelago which are converted wooden-hull fishing boats, Dive RACE Class E was designed from the start to be a top-quality diving yacht, and give its passengers comfort and convenience at all times. From the vast sunbathing area up top down to its lower deck, every section and feature was designed to make sure that DiveRACE Class E guests just think about relaxing between dives at some of the best locations in the world.
Dive RACE Class E can easily accommodate 28 lucky guests, in twin, double and quad-bunk cabins. However, when sailing in Thailand & Myanmar, the quad bunk cabins are limited to just two guests each, therefore reducing the total guest capacity to 20. For Indonesia & Malaysia trips, up to four guests can enjoy the comfort and space in the quad-bunk cabins. All cabins are air conditioned and have en suite bathrooms.
In the large saloon, there are lots of sofas around a wall-mounted 60” 3D television used for movies & videos of the day’s diving. The delicious food are local & western cuisine, and served throughout the day. After each scuba dive, the guests are welcomed back with a hot towel.
