Master Liveaboards - Switching Boats in the Pacific

Posted in:

Press Release

COVID-19 has given travel businesses all over the world challenges they were not expecting. Master Liveaboards is no exception and while their vessels have had extended downtime, this unique situation has given them time for some self assessment.

The company is evolving as many changes, large and small, are implemented. From fundamentals like branding and safety, all the way through to hygiene in the ‘new normal’, no stone has been left unexamined. Today though, marks the announcement of one of the bigger changes, and an exciting one for their guests.

April 2022 will see the beginning of a switch in destination for two of their vessels. The outcome will ultimately be Solomons PNG Master and Truk Master trading places and become Pacific Master and Solomons Master respectively.

The timeline for the switch will be complete in October of 2023. While this is a relatively extended period it will allow Master Liveaboards to offer customers, old and new, maximum choice and flexibility in their bookings. This most obvious in Bikini as 2022 and 2023 will see both of the vessels operating trips to this remote tech diving destination. 

“Our Bikini trips are already over-subscribed and COVID-19 has left many of our customers disappointed” said COO Mark Shandur.

“By adding a second vessel for two full seasons we hope that we can offer as many people as possible a second chance to dive this bucket list destination” he continued.

Offering this double season, coupled with some very attractive pricing for diving the Solomons in late 2021 and throughout 2022 mean everyone is a winner with this change.
