SY Ruby

SY Ruby Yacht Charter Sailing ThailandSY Ruby is a luxurious, fast charter catamaran with spacious areas both inside and outside the yacht. She boasts a large salon, seating 10 guests, sufficiently air-conditioned and two slick varnished tables where you can sit and enjoy your culinary adventures into the best Thai delights you can find in the country, with class. The salon leads to a u-shaped galley just opposite. From this area you reach the spacious double cabins within the hull of each side of the vessel.

Ruby’s three cabins with ensuite bathroom and shower are sure to provide you with all the comfort you need, with wide storage spaces for your personal items and maximum ventilation with fans and air-conditioning, including opening hatches letting in the fresh sea air and allowing comfortable sightings of the stunning environment around the waters and the sound of the sea first thing in the morning. She also has a double cabin with access to a communal bathroom and shower. Ruby was built with a view to offering you a sense of luxury during your liveaboard sailing.

Above deck and all around the cockpit area Ruby is complete with Sunbrella seat cushions and a large awning covering the entire area, providing much needed shelter from the sun, when your tanning mission is complete. Just then, simply walk to the cockpit fridge where you will find a variety of cooling drinks to quench your thirst and reclimatise; should you need to, you also have easy access to a washroom from this area. A stylish teak table further furnishes the cockpit and can be converted into a comfortable queen size bed, should you wish to lounge under the stars later in the evening.

Ruby‘s decks are spacious enough to provide comfort to all the vessel’s guests. She has a large flexible awning offering further shade when you have sat on the coach roof under the sun for too long. Welcoming large Ferrari nettings are also there for you to relax from your scuba diving adventures.

Complete with state of the art entertainment systems, SY Ruby has all the amenities necessary for fantastic live aboard dive trips and is crewed by warm and friendly staff, eager to please you and guide you around and down into the most spectacular dive sites in the world, meanwhile showing you the most stunning beaches in the islands surrounding them. SY Ruby is the perfect yacht for your luxurious liveaboard scuba diving adventures.

SY Ruby is built in such a way as to make diving as comfortable as diving can be and she does a good job accomplishing this. Stable, with lots of room for storing your diving gear, and the easiest access to and from the water with sea level steps, she boasts the best diving platform you can find in these waters. Furthermore, she has a silent built-in compressor, able to fill a bottle in just under 8 minutes.
