The best when it comes to what the Red Sea has to offer. Dive in style with MY Blue.
MY Blue was completed in April 2016 at an impressive length of 43m and breadth of 9m. MY Blue is the combined result of Egypt’s years of yacht building experience and modern technology. Its temperate and elegant outlines are matched with a classic interior and layout.
MY Blue cruises all routes from the North to the South taking in the most famed and sought after itineraries from the classical Northern Wrecks & Reefs down to the marine parks of Brothers, Daedalus, Zabargad & Rocky offering you up to 21 dives per week.
Superlative in the Red Sea
Completed in April 2016 the ship accommodates a total of 24 guests, the space they need in order to feel comfortable. This begins in the eight lower deck cabins that are brighter than the conventional cabins due to the special light shaft technology and offer a space to relax with a size of nine square meters. Each cabin has two separate beds, a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and hair dryer, a TV / DVD combo, individually controlled air conditioning and plenty of storage space for clothes and travel items. In addition, there are four upper deck cabins with sea view, of which two are equipped with a double bed and two with twin beds. The icing is the twelve-square-foot suite on the main deck.
This vessel represents a new superlative in the Red Sea. It combines modern European design with Egyptian ship construction. It combines the touch of luxury that you wish for in your vacation with the functionality that you would expect as a diver of a diving safari boat. The “Blue” is one of the largest and especially modern safari ships in the Red Sea with 43-meter length and 9 meter width.
