French Polynesia Master

French Polynesia Master - Tahiti Liveaboard

Built of steel, the French Polynesia Master plies the waters of this island archipelago, welcoming aboard 25 guests for 7 or 10 night dive safaris. Our 4 decks provide ample space for relaxation and dive equipment and camera preparation. Our experienced crew will ensure you receive only the highest quality service on your diving vacation.

Built in 2016, the French Polynesia Master has joined the Master Liveaboards’ fleet and has now become a fully fledged member. The building process was managed by the experienced yacht building team of Worldwide Dive and Sail, Jan & Frank van der Linde.
