Rhapsody: Liveaboard diving

The Rhapsody is a 25 meter long and 5,5 meter wide wooden motor yacht, built for comfort, safety and stability. She cruises at 11 knots, is diesel powered and has 220 volt electricity onboard.

 

What makes Rhapsody unique is the size of her cabins and the fact that we maximise the number of guests to eight - you can imagine the superior space you’ll have on board! Rhapsody is the perfect choice for those who appreciate a boat with a warm, friendly and personal feeling!

In the stern you find the dive platform and the dive deck. Here you also find all our diving facilities, gear-storage, tanks as well as our kitchen. One level up from the dive deck, you find one of our Superior Cabins with a lower double bed and a single upper bed. (All our cabins of course have air conditioning and en suite bathrooms.) On this level you will also find the salon; our air conditioned indoor area where you can flee the hot sun for a while and maybe listen to some music. Here you also find the fridge, loaded with chilled soft drinks, sweets and ice cold beers. You may help yourself to complimentary coffee, tea, cookies and fruit. Inside the salon you will find the door to the second Superior Cabin equipped as the first. Down one level you will find two more cabins: the Deluxe Cabin, a generously large cabin with a king-size double bed and the Executive cabin, a very spacious cabin with a large king-size double bed.

Back outside again, at the back of the boat, you’ll find the stairway up to the sundeck, where you can catch some sun or perhaps make hilarious stage dives down in to the crystal clear water! Here you also find our sun roof covered open dining area, where you will enjoy your breakfasts, lunches and dinners, – as always on our Atlantis liveaboards you may choose from our unique 40 dish menu – relax, socialise and admire the stunning sunsets of the Andaman Sea.

In short, Rhapsody is for those who truly treasure a cosy, personal boat with peaceful ambience, good atmosphere and spacious cabins. A boat where you really will get to know new friends, enjoy the extraordinary food, and simply…have a really good time. Welcome onboard!
