You can also enjoy piece of mind that you have contributed in the maintenance of this beautiful historic liveaboard vessel.

Built in 1962 for charcoal transportation, the June Hong Chian Lee was part of a small merchant fleet that traded up and down the coastline from Burma to Malaysia. After mainly being used to transport mango wood charcoal until 1985, she was restored and redesigned to serve as a classic yacht. The Junk is constructed mainly from a hard teak wood called Takien Tong. Extremely strong, the wood is used for the three masts that rise 23 meters above the deck - 28 meters above sea level. The trees cut for these huge masts date back over 300 years. According to legend, the June Hong Chian Lee has a murky past with stories of pirate cargo hidden beneath the charcoal. Secret compartments were often built deep inside the bulkheads, and there are old tales of junks dropping anchor beside coastal caves rich with gold ore and of pirates blasting out their booty and hiding it on board.

Dining Room & Bar

We realize that we can't control the menu of your underwater experiences but what happens above we will do our utmost to make that a first class experience. Good food is one of the areas were we make a special effort to excel! And that is one of the reasons that most of our agents mark our live aboard product five stars. In between meals there is always fresh fruit available, cookies in a jar, and after the night dive there will be some "sugar" waiting for you. This could be donuts (yes from Dunkin!) banana cake, cheese cake, custard, fruits in heavy syrup, nuts for the people who have a drink after the dive and so on...
