Our concept: Low Guest Numbers = A lot of space AND COMFORT.
MARI was built by traditional boat builders in South Sulawesi for their own use as a diving live-aboard in all Indonesian waters – from Sumatra to Papua. For this reason, the boat builders used particularly strong ironwood. MARI is on deck 34m long and can accommodate 14 guests in 7 cabins. Due to the large space available, MARI is also for non-divers and families particularly suitable. Because of her large action radius, MARI is ideal as a platform for special excursions as well as filming or research missions in remote areas.
The MARI explores the best of Indonesia’s dive sites to offer exciting year-round adventures. Divers can explore the sea and island world in the national parks of Raja Ampat, Triton Bay, the Banda Sea, Forgotten Islands and Halmahera. During our thoughtfully mapped out safaris, divers can expect thrilling dives with majestic manta rays, reef sharks/fish/creatures, and huge schools of fish, as they explore one of the most diverse marine environments in the world. With the chance of seeing everything from pygmy sea-horses to whales and whale-sharks, our experienced dive guides will make certain that this breathtakingly beautiful and diverse underwater world will leave an unforgettable impression. The spacious dive deck with gear storage and individual rinse tanks, 3 large dive tenders for getting you and from the dive sites, a onboard Nitrox-Membrane-System, as well as the recently installed Solar Power System for a lower CO2 footprint, will ensure a most comfortable dive liveaboard.

Our main diving area is one of the most diverse marine environments in the world – the famous Coral Triangle.
The Coral Triangle is a marine area located in the western Pacific Ocean. It includes the waters of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands. Named for its staggering number of corals (nearly 600 different species of reef-building corals alone), the region nurtures six of the world’s seven marine turtle species and more than 2000 species of reef fish.
