The M/Y DAMAI I was built in Tanjung Bira, South Sulawesi, by Pak Hadji Baso, the most prestigious builder in the area in 2009. The collaboration of traditional skills with years of experience in the Indonesian liveaboard diving industry has created a remarkable vessel.
The vessel has been designed to offer a personal service dedicated to small groups. With an overall length of 40 meters (130 feet) and a beam of over 8 meters (26 feet) the vessel has 7 staterooms with a choice of single cabins, twins, doubles or two spacious master cabins. With sizes ranging from 18 sq meters / 194 sq feet for the single cabin to 40 sq meters / 430 sq feet for the master cabin, all are furnished with either queen- or king-sized beds, en-suite toilets, and showers.
The vessel has been designed with three large deck areas for relaxing in sun or shade and enjoying rejuvenating massage and spa treatments. Specifically designed for divers, the vessel offers large dive stations with individual rinse tanks, a camera room with separate workstations, and an integrated 110v and 220v charging station for each photographer.
The vessel is the first in Indonesia to offer 3 local dive guides and 1 Instructor on board throughout your trip. With only 12 guests on most trips and 14 on some (full boat charter only), this is a good 4:1 guest to dive guide ratio. We also have 2 custom designed high speed tender boats used to transfer guests to and from the dive site safely and comfortably. Behind every detail is our objective to ensure the best service and diving experience for our guests.
