Master Liveaboards Adds New Vessels to Fleet: Blue Horizon, Blue Melody and Blue Voyager
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, October 27, 2023 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

Master Liveaboards has announced the addition of three liveaboards to its extensive fleet, which includes the Palau Siren, the Bahamas Master, and the Solomons Master. The vessels are established liveaboards operated for many years by UK-based diving holiday provider Blue O Two: Blue Horizon and Blue Melody in the Egyptian Red Sea, and Blue Voyager in the Maldives.

Blue O Two and Master Liveaboards have enjoyed a close business relationship over the last several years, jointly operating liveaboards in the Red Sea and the Maldives—for a period rebranded as the Red Sea Master and the Maldives Master—but this announcement means Master Liveaboards takes over both operations and sales of the three vessels. We can expect the three boats to be rebranded, but the teams won’t change.

Check out the press release below for more information. Read the DPG articles, “Maldivian Wonders with Master Liveaboards” and “Diving in the Land of the Pharaohs with Blue Horizon,” to get an idea of the awesome diving and underwater photo opportunities on offer in the Maldives and the Egyptian Red Sea.


Master Liveaboards introduce 3 new vessels and 2 new destinations

Master Liveaboards are very excited to announce 3 new vessels and 2 new destinations to their portfolio. From Tuesday October 31 onwards, Master Liveaboards will be taking over both operations and sales of Blue Horizon and Blue Melody in the Egyptian Red Sea, as well as Blue Voyager in the Maldives.

Blue O Two has been operating these award winning vessels for many years and on the ground, the same great team will be waiting for customers, both old and new. However, both the management and the branding of the vessels will be shifting to Master Liveaboards who will bring their wealth of worldwide vessel operations to the already excellent team. They will also continue to push things forwards, as they always have.

Master Liveaboards will also bring their world class sales and reservations team into play as the main booking hub for all Master Liveaboard vessels. This will mean even more choice for Master Liveaboards clients, all in one place.

Both the Red Sea and the Maldives offer not only world class liveaboard diving, but also a huge variety of things to see on those dives. From colourful reefs, to iconic wrecks, to huge drop offs, and of course a stunning array of large pelagics. There really is something for everyone, whatever itinerary in whichever destination you choose.

All information can be seen on the Master Liveaboards website and bookings will be available online to everyone to all from the 31st October.
