Schedule MV Febrina - Papua New Guinea
MV FeBrina was purchased by her current owners, Max Benjamin and Alan Raabe, in 1991. At the time, FeBrina was a fishing and diving charter vessel operating out of Gladstone, Australia. Prior to delivering the boat from Australia to Papua New Guinea, the boat was totally refurbished to cater especially for divers and underwater photographers. Since that time, there have been many changes to FeBrina, including the addition of an upper deck and relocation of the wheelhouse from main deck to upper deck, total rebuild of the forward cabins to 3 x ensuite cabins and total re-power of the boat with replacement of main engines and generators. Today, MV FeBrina is 73 feet of liveaboard comfort and convenience. She is a stable and extremely seaworthy motor vessel, well set out and catering for serious divers and photographers who want a total PNG dive experience. FeBrina`s crew are locally trained as divers, and they specialise in combining excellent service and meals in combination with the ultimate diving experience. The crew are friendly and humble, always ready to offer a smile and a helping hand. They are extraordinarily good "spotters" often pointing out elusive and rarely seen critters, much to everyone`s delight. The boat has 7 comfortable, individually air conditioned cabins in various configurations, catering for a maximum of 12 guests. The dive deck is well set out and diving couldn`t be easier, donning your gear at the dive consoles and entering the water via the water level duckboard. One giant stride and you are immediately enveloped in yet another extraordinary diving experience!
