Overview of Cheng Ho

The Cheng Ho is a customised Phinisi Schooner handcrafted by Bugis master carpenters using only the very best, well seasoned ulin, or ironwood, available. Constructed with three decks the Cheng Ho provides guests with plenty of space whether it is in the air-conditioned comfort of the large saloon or on the decks in the shade of her huge sails. Cheng Ho offers a great option for dive groups wishing to charter the full boat.

Cheng Ho has 14 guest cabins across her 3 decks. Six double bed cabins on both the lower and upper decks. Four twin bedded cabins on the lower deck and four single bed cabins on the main deck. Accommodating up to 24 guests each cabin has private en suite facilities with hot & cold shower and air conditioning.
 
The onboard restaurant and saloon are also air conditioned and include a 42" and a 32" LCD TVs and DVD players. Relax and enjoy the tropical views at the top-deck bar and lounge on the sun deck.

Drink & Dine

The restaurant aboard Cheng Ho is air conditioned and includes a glass fronted chiller stocked with soft drinks and fruit. Three meals per day, water, tea coffee and snacks are included on a liveaboard safari on board Cheng Ho.
 
If you have a favorite snack feel free to bring it with you as availability may be limited locally. For any special dietary requests, such as vegetarian meals, please inform us at time of booking and mention it to the crew on boarding Cheng Ho.
