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.
