MV Lapat

A small and intimate ship

MV Lapat is a small and intimate liveaboard ship that is suitable for you if diving is the main thing on liveaboard and the luxury of surface time is not essential. The best moments on Lapat are in the evening when the ship quiets down after the day trippers have left.

The ship's air-conditioned cabins are located on the diving deck. The cabins are reduced and the ship has shared showers/sanitary facilities for standard cabins. Master cabins have their own shower/toilet.

The ship comfortably accommodates 16 customers, which means that the atmosphere is usually more relaxed, especially in the evenings, than on large ships. 

Lapat has a weekly schedule, according to which it sails between dive sites. It is therefore easy to plan your own liiveaboard according to your favorite destinations. For example, on Saturdays Lapat spends almost the whole day at his favorite destination, Richelieu Rock, and on Sundays they hunt Mantos on Koh Bon all day.
