With spacious graceful decks

The MY Merit provides you with 24x6 meters ample space for all kinds of convenience. A maximum of 16 guests are welcomed onboard, to cruise on our Liveaboard Dive Tours through the Andaman Sea.

The main deck

The cabins

On the main deck you will find 4 Master cabins, which are all equipped with attractive en-suite bathrooms. A hot shower, a sink and a European toilet are here at your comfort. Enjoy the light in your room, the views and the breeze of the ocean through the large slideable windows. For your convenience, there is also a fan and air-conditioning in all Master cabins available. Further more there is also a Standard cabin on this deck available. The Standard cabin has a slideable window and a fan. Within all cabins the configurations are flexible: they can easily be adjusted either with twin beds or a double bed.

The galley

On the same deck, the large galley is located, in which our cook prepares delicious varying European breakfast and Thai- and European dishes. Regularly we also serve buffets and BBQ's onboard. Snacks and fresh fruits are served multiple times a day.

The diving area

At the aft of the vessel, next to the galley, we find ourselves on a spacious dive platform, where easily 20 divers can gear up. The dive platform is about 6 meters wide and 3 meters long and offers plenty of space to gear up, and to store and handle the dive equipment.

Two Bauer compressors ensure rapid tank fillings with clean air. Our Nitrox system, including 10 oxygen tanks, allows Nitrox filled tanks on request.

At the dive deck, a wide staircase leads to the upper deck.

The entry / exit platform

Next to the dive platform, you'll find the entry- and exit platform and the dinghy. Two stairs are attached to the platform, allowing easy returning to the boat after diving, snorkeling or swimming.

The upper deck

The lounge area

Once you come up the stairs, you will enter the lounge area. Here, a huge couch invites to shaded open-air relaxing, while facing the panaromaric views of the ocean. Vis-à-vis a cozy rattan sitting area is situated. All in all, the lounge can easily accommodate 12 people to relax during nice chats, reading exciting books, or playing fun games together.     

The dining area

A huge dining table, which can accommodate up to 20 people, is located at the center of the deck. Here we serve breakfast, lunch and diner and snacks and fruits inbetween. During the day, you can often see guests sitting here too, while they are filling out log books, watching photos on their computers, having a break with a cup of coffee or tea and so on.

All day long you're invited to make yourselves coffees, teas or hot chocolates at the coffee and tea area. Fresh drinking water is available here too. Out on the ocean, drinking lots of water is refreshing but also important, especially when you are diving too.

The cabins

On the upper deck, we have two more cabins, the Superior cabins, which have great views over the ocean through the large slideable windows. Also here, the cabin configurations are flexible and can be adjusted either with twin beds or a double bed. The Superior Cabins have a shared air-conditioning and shared bathrooms.

The wheelhouse

The wheelhouse is equiped with all navigational and safety instruments, like GPS, depth sounder, radar and radio. Our experienced captain has been driving at the Andaman Sea for more then 20 years. Together with the engineer and the boats boys, he ensures you will have a safe ride while being out on the sea.

For your safety, there is a life raft onboard, safety jackets, buoys and fire-extinguishers. Also in each cabin are safety jackets and a separate fire extinguisher.

The sunny area

In front of the wheelhouse, you will find a nice area with sun beds to enjoy the sun in the day time or to gaze at the stars during the night time...
