Explore the wonders of Myanmar’s hidden islands in style aboard Drenec, a luxury motor yacht. Refitted in 2012, this beautifully crafted yacht features three decks with teak wood flooring and contemporary furnishings and is set to be the largest and most luxurious vessel to cruise the Mergui Archipelago, when she launches towards the end of 2015. Offering an unparalleled level of comfort and an exciting itinerary, it will appeal to adventurous travellers seeking an unforgettable experience in one of Asia’s last untouched destinations.
Drenec accommodates up to 11 guests in five spacious and elegant cabins with rich timber interiors and contemporary furnishings.
As you cruise around 800 uninhabited islands, you’ll get the chance to visit local villages, relax on pristine white-sand beaches and see the Moken sea gypsies. Back on board, sip a cocktail on the sundeck as you relax and enjoy the views or be pampered with a massage.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Myanmar into a greater Asian holiday.
