At 33 metres in length, S/Y The Junk is a stunning luxury dive vessel that offers liveaboard diving holidays in Thailand. Originally built in 1962 as a charcoal transportation vessel, she was completely overhauled and refit in 1997 to the vessel she is today. Built from the finest Asian wood teak known as Takien Tong, she is a three mast junk vessel with 330 square metres of sails that are both functional and beautiful.
S/Y The Junk welcomes 18 divers on board. Accommodation is provided in two private double bed cabins, two triple cabins, and two cabins that can sleep up to four divers in bunks. All cabins are air conditioned and offer their own en-suite facilities.
The spacious, air-conditioned saloon is exquisitely fitted with hand carved shelves, drawers and cabinets, behind which is hidden the on board entertainment selection. Guests can choose from a library of books, videos and mini discs to entertain themselves when out of the water. A large flat screen TV is perfectly positioned for optimal viewing while relaxing in the spacious saloon area.
Dining on board S/Y The Junk is truly first class. With a wide selection of dishes ranging from Asian themed cuisine to more traditional Western styled dishes, guests are spoilt for choice. Alongside the regularly scheduled meals throughout the day, fresh fruit and additional snacks are always available. Meals are served in the saloon, which with its open design and many windows offers incredible views of the surrounding oceans as guests tantalise their taste buds on the exceptional cuisine on board.
An expansive dive and leisure deck provides ample space for kitting up even when the vessel is full. Underwater photographers and videographers will appreciate the large fresh water rinsing tanks and designated areas for charging and preparation of equipment.
