Plenty of Space
There is still plenty of space on this girl and she boasts a HD TV, a open dining area and large sundeck to work on that tan. She provides a buffet style selection of foods and there are always snacks and fruits on board. The on-board dinghy allows you to do some exploring on the stunning Similan Islands in between dives as well.
