Description

A Captain's dream - made into reality- for you to experience and enjoy

MV FeBrina came to Papua New Guinea as the life time dream of Captain Alan Raabe, combined with the foresight of Max Benjamin at Walindi Resort.

With Walindi Resort as her home Port, and under the management of Alan, MV FeBrina has evolved into a Boutique Liveaboard dive vessel, providing a unique diving experience in the bountiful waters of West New Britain.

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, with many further upgrades since then.

Today, MV FeBrina is 73 feet of liveaboard comfort and convenience. She is an older, traditional style vessel, a very stable and extremely seaworthy motor boat, well set out and catering for serious Divers and Photographers who want a total PNG dive experience. 

Your perfect 'Platform' to discover PNG from....

Built with a steel hull and steel/aluminium superstructure, MV Febrina's classic design and below deck cabins makes for a comfortable journey. Fitted with all modern navigational and safety equipment, large water and fuel tanks, individual air-conditioning to all areas of the vessel and water level duckboard, MV FeBrina is a perfect platform to explore the waters of Papua New Guinea.

MV FeBrina has three decks where you will find you own space to contemplate the next dive or just catch the rays. The Lower Deck houses the guest accommodation and engine room. The Main Deck is where you will find the Saloon and Galley, the Dive Deck, Dive Platform and Sundeck. The wheelhouse, laundry and crew quarters are located on the Upper Deck.

Let the food do all the talking...Continental Breakfast - Sit-down Dinner

Guests will enjoy a variety of cuisine on board, from a continental breakfast served from 5.30am to a beautiful sit-down dinner served after the night dive. The attentive crew of the MV FeBrina are on hand to assist to any requests.

Custom built Cabins on the MV FeBrina

MV FeBrina has accommodation for 12 passengers in 7 air-conditioned cabins. All cabins are situated on the Lower Deck, with access by traditional boat style ladder stairs. Cabin styles are Twin (2 beds), Double (1 bed) and 2 Single cabins.  All have been custom built to make maximum use of space available. .
