After undergoing a complete refit through 2016, the Truk Master is now starting its operations in Truk Lagooon, running 7- and 10-night itineraries to explore some of the world’s most exciting—and photogenic—wrecks. The Master Liveaboards yacht boasts luxurious cabins with en-suite bathrooms, as well as a special camera setup area.
Truk Lagoon is a historically important site that is home to numerous World War II wrecks of the Japanese Imperial fleet as well as various merchant vessels that have, over time, developed into beautiful artificial reefs. The U.S. attack on the Japanese naval base at Truk in February 1944 resulted in a collection of dozens of wrecks closely packed into the coral lagoon, many of which lie at depths easily reached by recreational divers. Some of the wrecks in deeper water can be penetrated by tec and wreck specialist divers.
Highlights include the Fujikawa Maru, a 430-foot armed cargo ship featuring a six-inch bow gun that was carrying several parts of a Zero fighter aircraft, such as propeller blades and engine parts, still visible today; Submarine 1.169, which sank after the crew forgot to close the valves in their haste to escape the attacks; and the Nippo Maru, a 390-foot cargo ship carrying a tank and Howitzer guns.
