M/V Bahamas Master
The Vessel… Originally based in Panama, this 35m steel vessel is now part of the Master Liveaboards fleet as the M/V Bahamas Master.
She’s equipped with 8 well-designed cabins that can comfortably house 16 divers between them. You’ll have a choice of three cabin types: two premium cabins on the main deck containing double beds (and one of them also has a single bed) as well as private en-suite bathrooms; two en-suite classic cabins; and four standard cabins sharing two bathrooms between them, on the lower deck.
Between dives, you can relax in the communal areas of both the upper and main decks or in the indoor lounge. Upstairs you’ll find a spacious outdoor covered bar and dining area as well as a sundeck where you can relax and top up your tan after a day spent underwater.
The rear of the main deck is where it all happens though. Here you’ll find space to set up and store all dive equipment in a personal location with under bench storage for masks, fins and anything else you need. Rinse tanks for cameras and computers are also provided. Underwater photographers can take advantage of the indoor camera station where you can show your photos on the TV.
Other than that there’s the Captains fly-bridge where you’re always welcome to soak up the incredible views of the paradise that is the Bahamas.
