Measuring 26 meters in length, the Hope Cruiser is a diving liveaboard yacht that was built with safety, stability and passenger comfort in mind. Capable of cruising at 12 knots, this twin diesel-powered yacht hosts up to 12 passengers across its 6 cabins.
The main deck of the Hope Cruiser is equipped with an air-conditioned saloon and bar as well as entertainment options in the form of a TV and DVD player, games, books, movies and music CDs. Passengers have the option of dining indoors in the air-conditioned dining room or dining alfresco at the aft dining area offering fantastic views of the surroundings. There is a sundeck on the yacht’s upper deck where passengers can enjoy comfortable mattresses, tables and chairs and of course more amazing views.
For easy access to the water, there is a ladder for swimming and a nearby freshwater shower for convenience. Diving is conducted from the diving tender which is large enough to store all scuba equipment boxes and is equipped with compressors for tank refills. Passengers who are divers can expect to dive up to 3 times every day, depending on the water and weather conditions, with night dives included in the itinerary. Divers need not worry about bringing their own weights and tanks as these are provided for no additional fee. Dives are led by a professional dive guide who has insider knowledge of the sites and will add to the experience of diving in the Maldives.
The Hope Cruiser welcomes as many as 12 guests aboard at any one time and has 6 staterooms located on its lower deck. All the cabins onboard the Hope Cruiser are air-conditioned individually with a private bathroom, hair dryer and closet space. There is also a porthole in the cabins.
The staterooms feature a double bed and a single bed arranged in bunk bed style.
