Launched in late 2007, Dorado is a strongly built 20 x 5 mt hardwood boat weighting some 40 tonnes with twin 320 HP diesels, large fuel and water tanks and attendant safety features. Her design criterion is that of being a leisurely long-range cruiser, with passenger comfort to the fore.
This is a perfect yacht for fishing and diving both for day as well as live aboard trips around Phuket.
This vessel offers sleeping accommodation and substantial space on both lower and upper decks for eating, sleeping or just lazing in the sun or shade.
The saloon has two separate dining areas, whilst the extensively shaded aft deck has further tabling for eating and drinking al fresco and from where all the fishing and swimming action can be shared. The large foredeck makes it ideal for sun bathing or as a fishing platform (i.e. for popping), whilst the upper bridge deck, has more covered outdoor seating and tabling.
The sleeping areas are generous; the fore cabin comprises a very large "v" sleeping platform comfortably taking two couples sharing. There are also two separate "queen size" single bunks for the larger adult adjacent to the fore cabin and a further two single bunks on the upper deck cabin, thus offering alternative sleeping accommodation for up to six passengers.
This vessel is suitable both for day and live aboard trips around Phuket in Thailand.
