The MY Liburan is a liveaboard tours in Indonesia operating out of Manado, North Sulawesi, which takes relatively small groups (maximum of only 14 divers
) around the finest waters the region has to offer including Bunaken, Lembeh, Bangka and Sangihe.
Length: 31 metres / 102 foot
Beam: 7 metres / 22 foot
Cruise: 9 knots
All the cabins enjoy air-conditioning and the vessel contains many of the same facilities and modern equipment as their more expensive competitors. The Liburan may not be the height of luxury but it is well-equipped and efficiently run, and provides all the comfort most scuba divers would need. This includes en-suite cabins
with hot showers, a saloon with full entertainment systems, and a very spacious sundeck where you can soak up the sun or relax in the shade with a good book or magazine.
The MY Liburan represents a very good value-for-money option for a Manado liveaboard and is a great choice for groups or for a whole boat charter trip, in which case they have a flexible schedule - they will go where you want to!
With 12 crew to cater for the needs of up to 14 guests, you can also be sure of attentive service and, since the boat is German-owned, there will always be someone to communicate with in German, as well as English and Indonesian. As an indication of their emphasis on safety, the boat is steel hulled
and guests must be certified and have 50 logged dives to join a tour on the Liburan.
