The Pattaya Dive Centre is now constructing a new dive boat for all our divers and students, it will be the fastest, newest and safest dive boat in Pattaya.. The new dive boat is a 16 metre long by 4 metres beam made from fibreglass. The boat will be the only new dive boat built to ISO standards in Pattaya, carrying 25 customers at 22 Knots to the dive sites. This is about 3 times faster than any other dive boat in the area.
As many regular customers will know we where the first dive centre to introduce a fast dive boat to Pattaya. When we sold our catamaran many of you missed the fast shuttle service to the islands, saving up to 2 and a half hours traveling time to and from the far islands. The new dive boat will be back soon.
The new dive boat will be fitted with 2 X 315 HP Yanmar Diesel engines, GPS, Depth sounder, marine radio, full complement of life jackets, first aid kit and oxygen, fire fighting equipment. The underside of the dive boat is made up of 8 sealed compartments making it virtually unsinkable. The new dive boat will have a large dive platform at the rear of the boat at the water level with 2 boarding ladders. Making the new dive dive easy to enter and exit the water.
We are looking for a name for the new dive boat and will give away a free days diving to anyone who comes up with a good name for the boat. Please e-mail names to us on [email protected] or post them on our facebook page.
So if you really want a 5 Star Dive centre look no further than the Pattaya Dive Centre. Setting the standards others try to achieve. The new dive boat will be ready for the Christmas holidays.
