Below Decks
Ruby is a beautifully finished yacht and is spacious inside and outside. The large saloon seats 10 persons easily around its 2 beautifully varnished saloon tables, with the well equipped u-shaped galley directly opposite. If need be the saloon can be cooled by a high capacitiy airconditioning, potentially making lunch and dinner a 'cool' event next to being a culinary adventure into the best the Thai cuisine has to offer.

From the saloon you walk down to the spacious double cabins located in the hulls on both sides. Ruby features three en-suite double cabins with private bathroom/shower and one double cabin with access to a shared bathroom/shower. There is ample room for your private belongings. Everything breathes an atmosphere of luxury and an eye for detail. Of course there is maximum ventilation: each cabin has two electric fans to keep you comfortable throughout the night as well as an opening hatch to let in the exotic smells and sounds of the tropics.

Above decks
Stepping outside from the saloon brings you into the cockpit. You'll find Sunbrella seat cushions throughout and a large teak cockpit table for stylish lounging (would you choose to sleep outside: the cockpit table converts to a queen size bed!!). A large fixed awning covers the whole cockpit keeping you out of the sun and - nice touch - there is direct access to a large fridge in the cockpit providing the cold drinks you long for. Direct access to a washroom is available from the cockpit.

The very spacious decks offer plenty of room for everyone. A big flexible awning provides the necessary shade while the coach roof can accomodate the sun worshippers. Large comfortable Ferrari nettings let you relax in the softest way possible.

Access to the warm tropical sea is easy and comfortable: aft stairs lead to a sea level swim platform with a retractable swim ladder for easy access.

More about diving on SY Ruby

Diving is not Ruby’s first reason for being but sailing through some of the worlds best dive sites without a glance would be a crime. Our experienced dive master will be happy to show you the wonders of the Andaman Sea under water world.

There is no better platform to dive off than Ruby. She is stable, lots of room to put on and stow your gear and the easiest of entries and exits from the sea level dive steps. We have a top of the line dive 210 L/H compressor that fills a bottle in 8 minutes. This high capacity limits the time the compressor has to run.

We have 6 complete dive sets including BCD’s, regulators, wet suits, fins, masks and ten tanks. We are not a specialized dive boat so we must limit the dives to three per day per person. For novices, there is a PADI Open Water course available on the boat give by our PADI certified Dive Instructor. It includes all theory, practice at a suitable beach and four open water dives. The course normally takes four days but can be stretched to accommodate the sailing schedule. It truly is the nicest introduction to diving you can have. Totally personalized, no travel back and forth, real world instruction rather than in a pool with 20 people. Learn at your own pace. More advanced diving courses are also available. Please inquire.
