Introducing the Mergui Island Expedition

Introducing the Mergui Island Expedition

June 10, 2015 in Mergui Island Expedition, 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.

As all of our yachts, Drenec is also available for private charters with groups of up to 11 guests.
