Egyptian Dive Vessel Launched

Monday, October 30, 2006
The Red Sea is noted as one of the finest dive destinations in the world. Many visit Egypt’s coastal resorts and hire boats to take them to nearby reefs. With the launching of the 39 by 8.6-meter M/S Royal Evolution the area that is open to divers has been significantly increased. With a 2000 nautical mile cruising range and licensed to operate up to 600 miles from refuge, the new BV-classed SOLAS compliant vessel can take visitors to some of the best dive spots in the region.

Powered by a pair of 1100 hp Cummins KTA38 M1 main engines the boat has a 14-knot maximum speed and 12-knot cruising speed. Accommodation is provided for 24 passengers and 16 crewmembers. For dive support, scuba and nitrox filling stations are provided along with individual dive lockers for the 24 guests and four guides.
