blue o two announces M/Y blue Voyager’s move to the Maldives and competition



blue o two

In response to the increasing popularity of the Maldives and the wishes of the blue o two customers, blue o two have announced that M/Y blue Voyager will be moving from her home in the Red Sea and relocating to the pearls of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives.

Refurbished in 2015 ready for her move to the Maldives, M/Y blue Voyager is a 37 metre, steel hulled vessel that boasts three spacious double and ten twin cabins. She features a separate outdoor dining area, bar and sky lounge, as well as a Jacuzzi. All cabins are air-conditioned with modern and comfortable interiors and fittings, en-suite bathrooms, and in-cabin entertainment.

Now welcoming 26 divers on board, M/Y blue Voyager is an ideal diving liveaboard for the Maldives. Her steel hull will provide additional stability sailing around the Maldivian atolls. She has been fitted with new twin 600hp Cummins engines, providing additional dependability when compared to a single engine vessel.

Company director Jason Strickland says: “We are very excited for M/Y blue Voyager’s move to the Maldives. The Maldives is one of the finest diving destinations in the world, and we are thrilled to be able to expand our blue o two fleet in this stunning destination. We look forward to welcoming you all on board!”
