    VIP ONE - 5* Class Liveaboard

Enjoy a week of luxury accommodation while diving the most exciting dive sites and wrecks of the Northern Red Sea. VIP One is a truly five star vessel. It has a very impressive client list, ranging from world renowned underwater cameramen to music industry figures. VIP One is a state of the art, luxury motor yacht which comfortably accommodates 16 passengers in its 8 spacious, en-suite and air conditioned, double cabins.

This luxury motor yacht is built to offer the best in comfort and safety and to provide exceptionally first class service. It is a spacious 29.5 meters in length, the interior is fully air-conditioned with large double cabins complete with private en-suite bathroom and shower, large saloon, dining room, bar and a sundeck equipped with a BBQ. VIP One can comfortably accommodate 16 people in 8 spacious cabins.

 

The entire interior of the boat is air conditioned meaning that the in-house saloon, dining room and bar remain comfortably cool all day.

The entire crew of VIP One are dedicated to making your stay an unforgettable one.

 

VIP One was built with comfort and luxury in mind. With attention to the smaller details, every effort has been made to ensure that your stay with us will be first class in every sense of the word. Full air conditioning, an adjustable piped sound system and a silent generator are many of the features which have been added to ensure your relaxation.

 

With great diving on a daily basis your safari will be further enhanced with superb dining. Our chef has been hand picked by the owner, Mr Alain Sobol, for his superb catering skills. The menu is wide and varied and the chef is more than happy to prepare individual meals for those with specific dietary requirements.

When not enjoying one of the three delicious daily meals or relaxing on deck, guests are able to enjoy either of the two fully stocked on board bars.

Following numerous requests for rebreather liveaboard trips, we are happy to announce that VIP One is now rebreather friendly, with all the facilities on board to cater for rebreather divers, including a booster pump, allowing us to fill oxygen tanks to 200 bar. Rental units (Poseidon, Evolution Plus, Inspiration, Megalodon and Sentinel) are available if you want to travel light and not be weighed down with your personal unit. Also, special “rebreather only” trips and trimix rebreather trips are being scheduled as we speak. If you have a group of 10 rebreather divers why not contact us and book your own private trip, we can open up a safari especially for you (subject to the boats availability).
