The  award winning MV Hurricane was launched in 2004.  At 36m in length and with her steel hull she was designed specifically to offer a stable and luxurious dive platform from which to explore the Southern Red Sea.

Accommodation comprises of eleven spacious air conditioned twin en-suite cabins.

All meals are served buffet style in the large and modern dining area on the main deck. A spiral stair case gives access to the saloon and a bar stocked with a selection of beers, wines and soft drinks. A large screen and entertainment centre provides the opportunity to view either a movie or the days’ footage from the cushioned benches in the saloon.

All outside areas have teak decking and shaded areas. The double doors from the saloon open directly onto a large cocktail deck where snacks are served in the late afternoon.

M/Y Hurricane is fully tech friendly and able to meet the needs of every type of diver.
