Built from salvaged Indonesian woods, the classy Phinisi liveaboard, Tiara, offers loads of space indoors and out.  The very large top deck sun lounge allows divers to catch some rays and view the scenery in ultimate comfort. 

Downstairs on the main deck, the living area is equally as spacious, allowing plenty of place to spread out in comfort.  Soft sofas are a great place to socialize, have a nap, read a book or watch a film.  You'll also find in the lounge a bar stocked with imported wines and a selection of other drinks, an ice machine, a coffee machine, a wine fridge, a juice extractor, an herbal tea station and a drinks fridge.  Dinner can be served here as an alternative to the main deck exterior dining area depending on weather conditions and your personal preference

The six cabins are all located on the lower deck and all feature en-suite bathrooms, hot water showers and environmentally friendly toiletries.  Two cabins are set up with the possibility of being family cabins, each with capacity for 2 adults and a child. 

Also located on the main deck is the dive deck which has individual setup areas and hot showers.  Photographers will appreciate the indoor camera room which has plenty of storage space ... and, of course, the onboard PCs for editing photos or videos.


For between-dive activities or for non-divers looking for some sporting fun, Tiare offers snorkeling gear, the use of 2 kayaks, a stand up paddle and a towable water tube. There are also shore excursions and visits to Indonesian villages where possible.
