Solitude One

Solitude One Glowing 786 opt

Solitude One, a 52-meter (171 foot) steel-hulled merchant vessel, was transformed into a stunning diving yacht.   She is now offering 7 & 10 day programs diving the best of Palau.

"The transformation of this vessel from her life as the very popular but very basic, Big Blue, to her new incarnation as the luxurious Solitude One, has been an incredible success.   She now spends part of the year in Palau and part in the Philippines.  I haven't been out to visit her since her make-over, but I'm itching to go!  I understand she's a beauty."  ...   Dominick Macan

Micronesia Solitude One interior set 2 sharp


A new life for a classic yacht

In the complete rebuild from her original form, the present owners tell us that they have set very high standards in hospitality and professionalism.

In the redesign process, the digital darkroom was given as much consideration in the overall design of the vessel. Occupying premium space on the 'A' deck and placed adjacent to the lounge, the space is designed for safely stowing camera and video equipment, for prepping, charging batteries and working on.

Computer terminals are available if you want to leave your laptop at home and a library of carefully selected periodicals and books will give you all the intellectual stimulation you need.

She has a comfy lounge and covered & uncovered sundecks - plus the deck is also great for watching out for dancing dolphins and breaching mantas or hanging out in the evenings to look at constellations in the night sky.

Meals are carefully prepared, special needs are happily accommodated and the bar offers an excellent supply of spirits, wines and beers.


Solitude One spends part of the year in Palau (September through March) and part of the year in the Philippines (April to September).   

Nitrox is available and for full charters rebreather support is possible with advance notice.
