The steel-hulled Solomons Master (formerly Truk Master) boasts eight double occupancy cabins providing comfortable accommodation for up to 16 guests* with a choice of classic, premium or superior cabins. Each cabin benefits from ensuite bathroom facilities and individually controlled air-conditioning.
Solomons Master benefits from a large dive deck with individual set up stations, under-bench storage and an entry platform at the rear complete with deco bar. The boat is fully equipped to cater for recreational, technical and rebreather divers, but will be exclusively for technical divers when in Bikini Atoll.
The main deck houses a spacious indoor dining room as well as a camera station complete with numerous charging points and storage space. After a fantastic day of diving, unwind and relax in Solomons Master’s indoor lounge and bar area which is equipped with a plasma screen ideal for watching a movie or photo viewing. Alternatively, head out to the shaded relaxation area or the large sundeck on the upper deck and sink into a lounge chair to soak up the atmosphere and stunning views.
*NOTE: On Bikini Atoll itineraries, Solomons Master is limited to a maximum of 12 guests due to space limitations for equipment storage. Spaces will only be available in premium cabins located on the lower and mid decks. Cabins 1 and 8 are not available for use by guests’ use on Bikini Atoll trips.
