Mermaid 1 luxury Indonesia liveaboard

Komodo, Raja Ampat, Banda Sea

Mermaid 1 luxury liveaboard

Mermaid 1 is our favourite luxury Indonesia liveaboard for individual bookings. Many Indo liveaboards only really cater to dive clubs and full charters, but if you are a couple or travelling solo them Mermaid 1 is ideal. It also has Komodo trips that start and finish in Bali, so no need to book unreliable domestic flights. Raja Ampat trips start from Sorong.

Mermaid 1 offers comfort, lots of space and a good turn of speed to get divers to the dive sites sooner. She was custom built for divers and has a huge dive deck. She has an experienced crew and is well set up for underwater photographers. This is also one of the few boats with a single cabin.


  • Max 15 Guests in en-suite double and twin cabins.
  • There is one single bed cabin.
  • Cabins have hot water showers, TV’s and air-con.
  • Cruising Speed of 10 Knots
  • 28m length, 7m beam
  • Lots of space. Large sun deck, large kitting up area and dive deck.
  • Very experienced dive guides
  • Two dinghys with ladders for quick pickups after the dives.
  • NITROX is available at extra charge. Nitrox courses can be taught on board.
  • Fabulous Asian and European Food.
  • 3G boosters for phone and internet access throughout the Komodo region and in many parts of Raja Ampat.
