The 36 metre MY Pelagian was designed as a wide-ranging luxury motor yacht and is stoutly constructed from steel to the highest international safety standards.

With a maximum of only 10 guests accommodated in en-suite cabins, this Sulawesi liveaboard is ideal for dive adventure cruises to the remotest islands and offers new and exciting opportunities with diving trips to Wakatobi and Banda Sea. Wakatobi is home to one of the most prolific coral reef systems in the world.

What's more, with such a remote dive location as Wakatobi, you may be wondering how on earth you'll get there, and anticipating long waits at far-flung airports for connections that may never arrive. Not with the Pelagian! Return private charter flights from Bali direct to the boat are laid on for all its guests.

Pelagian has a camera workshop and 2 custom built 18 foot rigid inflatable dive tenders (RIB style), complete with their own tank racks, steel ladders, camera rinse tanks and oxygen. With whips from the Pelagian, the tanks are filled quickly where they stand on the dinghies. This means there's no need to move your scuba equipment off the tender until the end of the cruise - a great convenience.

With a wealth of experience operating in the area and numerous film and magazine credits, including The National Geographic, it's no wonder Pelagian has a hard-earned reputation as the pro' diver's liveaboard of choice.

Cabins, Berths, Showers, Bathrooms...
There is 1 Master queen-size double bed cabin on main deck, 3 double bed cabins with extra bed (1 Deluxe and 2 Superlux), and 1 Standard cabin on the lower deck.

The Master cabin is exceptionally large, with its own sofa and TV and DVD player. Because the cabin is on the main deck, you'll see that it's light and airy, and most accessible.

The double cabins are suitable for couples or friends as they have both double and single beds. They are long cabins, so are naturally lighted by several port holes each.

The Standard cabin is smaller (but still reasonably well sized), with a single bed only.

All the cabins have:
  • Toilet and hot water shower - unlimited showering
  • Individually controlled air conditioning
  • Sea-view portholes
