MSY Dive Damai II, like her sister ship, the Damai I, has a sense of adventure, plotting some of the most exciting routes in Indonesian waters. This adventurous spirit is elegantly combined with luxurious cabins, a large dive deck and relaxing dining and massage areas. Damai II has a deck length of 40 meters and a beam of 9 meters at its widest point. It is built to an uncompromising standard and fitted out with all the latest diving, navigation and safety equipment. Driven by two 320 horse power Mitsubishi engines the vessel can cruise at 10 knots.

MSY Dive Damai II features two stern Master cabins and four below deck cabins. The stern Master cabins boast their own private deck with loungers, a super-king size bed, day beds, two desks and private shower. The below deck cabins possess a level of luxury not seen on any other vessel in Indonesia. Each cabin has a private shower, a queen-size bed, an additional single bed or day bed and are finished with the highest quality furnishings. The dive systems have been made even more accommodating on the new vessel. The dive station is larger and is served by large rinse tanks. The camera room has been enlarged also. The max 4 diver to 1 guide ratio that customers enjoy so much on the Damai I has, of course, been maintained and there are three custom designed high speed tender boats. The Damai II is slightly larger than her sister ship, making ample space for three large outside deck areas with an outside dining facility, Damai’s famous massage and spa treatment area and plenty of extra lounging and sunbathing space.
