The Junk - Liveaboard


The most enchanting boat to grace the waters of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. The Junk or traditional name June Hong Chian Lee oozes celebrity status featuring in Hollywood Movies such as The Man with the Golden Gun, Swiss Family Robinson and more recently Shanghai so guests will be overwhelmed to have shared the same experience of The Junk with superstars. The Junk has beautifully designed rooms with Private Double available, Twin/Triple and Single Bed Quad Room all having Air-conditioning and Ensuite Shower Rooms. The traditional Saloon is very spacious with dining area and plenty of space for photo editing. Diving in Thailand has never been so romantic for the honeymooning couple staying on board The Junk right through to a group of Club Divers looking for a pirate-like adventure, she absolutely offers something for everyone. The dive deck is also very spacious with lots of kitting up space for each guest.

History of the June Hong Chian Lee is one of several junks built in Penang, Malaysia, and is a 30 meters, 140-ton three mast junk with 330 square meters of sails, Build 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. She was mainly used to transport mango wood charcoal till 1985 then she was restored and redesigned for the first time to serve as a classic yacht. In 1997 she changed owners and she was completely restored and set up as a liveaboard vessel. The June Hong is constructed mainly from a hard teak wood called Takien Tong.

Agent Liveaboard Verdict: With the amazing scenery in the Similans in Thailand with a backdrop of the magical Junk and the enchanting Manta Rays and Whale Sharks of the Sea is truly the perfect diving combination. We hope you will come and share a Magical Diving experience with us.
