MY Blue is a sumptuous 43m liveaboard from the esteemed Blue Planet fleet. This is a spacious and very comfortable motor yacht that takes up to 24 divers, in 12 well-appointed cabins, to the best dive sites of the Red Sea.

With a beam of 9m this is a large boat with a variety of relaxation spaces to choose from. There is a large air-conditioned saloon/dining area with TV, music system, games and a library. There is another lounging space with comfortable chairs and beanbags. In the open air lounge you can relax on comfortable sofa-style seating, chatting with your fellow divers. There is also a large sundeck with sun loungers where you can work on your tan.

Other features that are evidence of the quality of M/Y Blue are that all twin bed cabins have ensuite bathrooms and feature beds side by side, not bunks. The cabins also feature light shaft technology making them bright and well-lit.

Divers will appreciate the large and well planned dive deck with 2 showers and 2 toilets for those urgent moments before and after dives. There is also free nitrox, rebreather compatibility, 15 litre tanks available, camera rinse tanks and tables, plus free Wifi internet when within range. 2 comfortable RIBs with ladders for egress also make life on these Red Sea liveaboard safaris a breeze
