Mekong Pandaw

Pandaw's boutique ships were built new and designed and finished as replicas of colonial river steamers, replete in teak and brass, potted palms, open decks, and quality cotton sheets on your bed. These replica ships, while reminiscent of the past, incorporate modern navigation and safety equipment, as well as modern bathrooms and air-con in each cabin. These small ships have the highest passenger - space ratio of any ship afloat. Dining is single sitting with buffet breakfast and lunches, and informal dinners with waiter service. Smart casual dress is expected in the dining room. With the highest staff guest ratio of any ship in the world there is an incredible level of care. It is more like being on a 1920's private yacht party than a cruise ship. The much loved Pandaw staterooms are roomy at 15 square meters. Finished in traditional marine brass and teak, all cabins have the necessary modcons, and those on the Main and Upper decks open onto promenade decks with their own rattan seating. Sailing on a Pandaw is essentially an outdoor experience. Whilst the staterooms are very comfortable and roomy, passengers prefer to spend their time sitting outside, on the promenade decks or on the vast observation deck above. Unlike other cruise ships every window (except port holes on lower deck) can open. The Pandaw's have an ultra shallow draft enabling them to moor where larger ships could not stop. Inland water navigation in these regions is challenging and the Pandaw's have been specially designed to cope with constantly changing river conditions. With modern navigation aids and very experienced crew, a Pandaw boat is one of the safest on our rivers.

Meltemi

Meltemi is named after a wind in the Mediterranean Sea. She is our first catamaran: a French-built Lagoon 500, one of the most successful yachts ever designed for high-end charter. Her previous owner was a Malay princess. In 2015, Meltemi joined Burma Boating's fleet for private charters and our Luxury Sailing Adventure cruises in Myanmar's Mergui Archipelago. Meltemi is easy to sail, all winches are electric and can be fully controlled from the large flybridge. She's a great yacht for groups of friends or families and there is lots of space to play or lounge. When under sail, most guests just love to lie in the nets at the bow with the water splashing below.

Meta IV

Meta IV, was designed by the naval architect Thomas E. Colvin, who gave the vessel her beautiful shape and robust hull. She is made entirely of Thai teak, one of the best woods for building classic boats. Meta IV was constructed in 1998 as a private yacht for a Swiss businessman who made his fortune in hotels. In 2010, captain Herbert Mayrhauser found her at a pier in Phuket and immediately fell in love. After two years of intensive restoration work and refitting, Meta IV started her new life as a luxury charter vessel in the fall of 2012. Meta IV measures 85 feet in length or 25 metres. That's longer than the Santa Maria, the boat that Christopher Columbus sailed into history when he discovered the Americas. In fact, with all her space, you could almost forget you were holidaying on a yacht. The sheer size, and the facilities on board, make for a holiday getaway that your family or friends won't forget. It's your trip of a lifetime. And the crew of Meta IV will do everything possible to make it an amazing experience. Man the wheel, navigate the waters, or simply relax and snooze in the sun.

Murray Princess

PS Murray Princess is purpose built for the Murray River. She is faithfully designed as a modern romantic representative of a time when hundreds of such vessels plied the river. Unlike most modern-day river vessels with imitation paddles, Murray Princess is propelled by an authentic, massive stern paddlewheel. There’s no better way to see the Murray River and a slice of the hauntingly beautiful and dramatic Australian outback, its unique flora and fauna, and the rich legacy of old riverside ports and indigenous culture close up than to drift unhurried and quietly under the power of the paddle-wheeler. Accommodating just 120 passengers, Murray Princess brings the unique advantages of small ship cruising to the Murray River. The Captain and crew know the river intimately and are delighted to share with you their knowledge and stories. The lounges and dining saloon are spacious with a character and charm of yesteryear. Grand in name, yet relaxed and informal by nature, Murray Princess fosters a warmth and friendliness unique to the river.
