MV Giamani - ready for you!

On Wednesday night we had a little launch party for the MV Giamani, a new liveaboard for the 2007 - 2008 season. The first trips on the boat are scheduled for early November. Jamie turned up early to get a few photos before dark. The boat is not typical of Thailand liveaboards. It is not locally built and has a very different look. Giamani is built to IMO standards and from the moment to step on board you get the idea that this is a very well built and safe boat. Maybe not as pretty as some others, maybe lacking sleek lines, but this is a dive boat, not a racing boat!

The dive deck is nice and large, with a folding dive platform that is raised when the boat is moving. The upper deck dining and seating area is spacious plus there is an indoor salon which will be equipped with TV and DVD, plus a computer for guests to use.

The standard cabins are on this upper deck - with 2 bunks, the lower one being almost a double bed (for 2 smaller people at least!) The 2 cabins share a bathroom.

On the main deck behind the dive deck you find 4 triple cabins which can be booked for 2 or 3 people. Beds are all bunk, and all cabins have a bathroom. If booking these cabins for 2 people you will find them nice and spacious. We'll wait a while for some nice cabin photos, as it was a bit dark and cloudy on Wednesday.

Giamani is not luxury, but is good quality. Importantly for us, the boat is being operated by the same group as the Colona 6, which has been providing good service since 2000. We are confident that the Giamani will be a success this season.
