Similans Boat D1

MV DiveRACE Class E, launched in 2015, is the newest luxury liveaboard to sail Southeast Asia and elegantly designed with comfort and safety in mind. She was constructed following international standards, with the aim of being a luxury liveaboard of excellent quality, providing the best for each passenger on board during trips. And with a maximum of 20 guests with berths for 28 everybody will get the best. She is fast and comfortable, with all major systems in pairs to ensure that we have spare in the event of any breakdowns.

DiveRACE provides a host of facilities and services. Luxuriate in the warm rays of the sun and enjoy a chilled drink on our spacious sun deck. Between dives, you may choose to watch the latest movies on a 60" 3D TV in the comfort of our air conditioned salon, or indulge in a relaxing massage in our private massage room. Photographers are welcome to utilise the multimedia stations to edit their works. Exquiste meals are planned and executed for guests everyday, special diets catered for, and a hot towel and tea after each dive awaits every diver to soothe and refresh themselves. Fresh towels are brought to your room daily and laundry services are available on request.
