MY Andaman Explorer

The MY Andaman Explorer was built as the MV Atlantic Guard in 1963 in Norway as a coast guard vessel. She is 61 meters long with her original Rolls Royce engines. The hull is built to ‘ice class’ with extra thick plates and has the power to withstand north Atlantic storms. Very handy when cruising in tropical waters!  She retired from coast guard duties in 1998 and was then owned by an Italian Family who lavished millions on her. The ship was then completely refitted with eleven very generous suites.

Much of MY Andaman Explorer is floored with Carrara marble, pleasantly cool under foot for those who go unshod. In recent times she has belonged to a powerful shipping family based in Dubai who maintained the ship to a very high standard. Today the MY Andaman Explorer is owned by Pandaw River Expeditions and cruises the Mergui Archipelago on a 7-night expedition. The MY Andaman Explorer offers 10 generously proportioned suites with separate sitting room area, private bathrooms, and air-conditioning.
