MSY Seahorse - Indonesia Liveaboards - Dive Discovery Indonesia

For luxury cruising, diving & recreational charters in Indonesia
Taking you where others have yet to dive!

The Sea Horse is Indonesia's fastest Phinisi liveaboard with a top cruising speed of 12 knots. Built in 2004 with speed, safety and comfort in mind, the ship spans an impressive 33 meters long and 8.5 meters wide, all powered by a 380 hp MAN marine engine. The elegance of her solid iron wood hull and teak wood interior combined with luxurious air conditioned cabins and modern safety, navigation and diving equipment make her the superior choice amongst liveaboard dive vessels in Indonesia.

Indonesian 'Bugis Prahus', commonly known as Pinisi, are made from locally-grown timber (Ironwood & Teak amongst others) according to a tradition that dates back to long before Portuguese colonists reached the area. The classic beauty of the MSY Sea Horse combines this traditional craftsmanship with modern conveniences, providing our guests with luxurious comfort even in the remotest waters of Indonesia. The MSY Sea Horse is Indonesia's ultimate luxury liveaboard scuba diving vessel.
