The MV Carpe Diem is a 35-m long motor safari yacht with a wooden hull. It has 3 decks plus a sundeck with 10 guest cabins divided in 3 categories and can cater for a maximum of 20 guests. The main open air dining area and bar area is located at the back of the boat where you will be served semi buffet meals prepared by the fine dining chef. From the dining area a staircase ultimately leads you to a 115 sqm sun deck, which is partially shaded and has a sitting area in the middle and some lounge chairs to catch that nice tan.
