DIVE BOAT M/V MATCHANU – EXCLUSIVELY FOR ALOHA DIVING CUSTOMERS

The charming diving boat M/V Matchanu offers divers every comfort and sufficient space. It is outfitted with all safety equipment and an air fill compressor. The former fishing boat was completely overhauled and converted into a safe and reliable boat by us in 2019. The low center gravity ensures a steady and enjoyable ride, even in rough sea. The spacious, shaded dive deck (aft cockpit) with its bathing platform is equipped with benches, tank racks and a solid ladder. The cozy saloon has a comfortable seating area with a foldable table and a buffet with a kitchenette. It offers ideal shelter in all weather conditions. The heads (toilet) and a freshwater shower are located on the main deck. The covered upper deck provides space to relax on beanbags and pads around a side table. M/V Matchanu is further equipped with a tender boat, a kayak and SUP for non-diving activities (at no extra charges).

M/V Matchanu is different to the other boats in Phuket because:

  • It accommodates max. 12 divers or 20 non divers (all other boats take 30 divers+)
  • The pleasant and friendly atmosphere on board (no mass processing)
  • It is neat and tidy, reliable and charming
  • The owner joins every tour in person
  • It is consistently and well maintained by the owner
  • The annual refit in the shipyard is done diligent
  • All required safety equipment aboard is in proper conditions
  • Solar power instead of a generator does not cause disturbing noise and can be considered as environmentally sustainable
  • Every litre of diesel used (carbon foot print) is compensated in form of a donation to Oceans For All
