The jewel in the crown of the Emperor fleet, the Emperor Elite is the highest quality example of the custom-designed and purpose-built boats in their Red Sea line. It is also winner of our 2011 'Liveaboard of the Year' award.

At 38 metres long and 8 metres wide, the Elite is the largest in the fleet and can comfortably accommodate up to 26 guests. All the cabins have en-suite facilities and are air-conditioned. Being their flagship liveaboard, the Emperor Elite has flat screen media players and minibars in every guest cabin.

As you can expect from the entire Emperor fleet, the Emperor Elite provides creature comforts beyond the expectations of most guests, such as bathrobes, hairdryers, complimentary dinner wine and free internet usage. The Emperor Elite is generous with space too, which is fully utilised with no less than 3 sundecks, huge dive deck with platform, air-conditioned saloon, with bar and a dining room.

Additional scuba delights include free nitrox, free 15 litre tanks, and the Emperor Fleet's guarantee of a minimum of 2 Red Sea liveaboard dive guides per trip.
