MY Excellence is a stylish purpose built Hurghada liveaboard running diving charters around some of the best dive sites of the Southern Red Sea, both in Egyptian and Sudanese waters. Up to 22 divers can be accommodated in 11 twin and double en-suite cabins. 3 of the cabins are on the main or upper deck giving superior views and more natural light.

The decking is teak wood and all the interior spaces are tastefully furnished and comfortable. You can hang out in the large air conditioned lounge and dining room on the main deck which comes complete with full multimedia entertainment, free internet facility, and even a bar for those post dive tipples. This is the main social spot on the boat, as well as the partially shaded sundeck which suits sun bathers and shade-seekers alike.

At 34 metres long, MY Excellence boasts a huge dive deck where there is always plenty of room for kitting up, preparing for dives on air, nitrox or with rebreathers. Spacious, comfortable and stylish, MY Excellence excels among Egypt's liveaboard dive charters based in Hurghada.
