Our expedition yacht MY Drenec spent a few weeks in the Seychelles this summer before continuing her passage to Myanmar's Mergui Archipelago. We put together a few of our favourite images taken by the Danish photographer David Høgsholt. In October Drenec will arrive in the Mergui Archipelago, just in time for the coming season.
Interested in a Trip on Drenec?
With the beginning of the coming season, we are introducing two completely new cruises: The Mergui Island Expeditions aboard classic exploration yacht MY Drenec. The cruises are designed for travellers with limited time and high expectations.
Drenec is the most luxurious yacht in our fleet. Her five guest cabins offer an unparalleled level of comfort. The 120-foot yacht will sail two 3-night trips per week, each with different itineraries. Both trips can be combined to a 6-night cruise. On the South Route (starting on Fridays), we explore the most southern and western parts of the Mergui Archipelago, where you will discover unforgettable beaches and gorgeous bays. The North Route (starting on Mondays) will take us all the way to famous Lampi Marine National Park, where snorkelling enthusiasts will find the most beautiful reefs. On both trips, we will visit communities of the indigenous Moken sea nomads, which has proven to be a highlight of all our cruises.
All trips depart from the city of Kawthaung, just across the border from Thailand. Rates start a EUR 1,700 per person, including all meals, all non-alcoholic drinks and activities on board.
Drenec was built in the Netherlands as an offshore vessel. In 2012, she was completely refitted and upgraded in Malta with interiors designed by Sophie Bouakel-Kastelein. The yacht is currently under passage from Spain to her new base in Myanmar.
Here's a first look at our new yacht, the expedition vessel MY Drenec, which will be joining our fleet with the beginning of the coming season in November 2015. Drenec is a beautifully designed and very well-equipped luxury yacht. In her previous life, Drenec spent years exploring the Indian Ocean and remote areas such as the Arctic. We will keep you updated on our new cruises!
