The large and well-maintained yacht can accommodate a maximum of 20 guests, mainly from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The ship is 34 meters long and 10 meters wide. With a width of 10 meters and the carefully built-in stabilizers, the AMBA is a very safe and quiet ship. There are a total of 4 floor levels, but for safety the ship is more wide than it is built high.
The motors and generators are very quiet and at night you will hear next to nothing but the sound of the sea. Even the cabins on the lower deck, which are close to the generators, are very quiet at night.
THE LAST RENOVATION
The ship was completely and carefully renovated over several months during the Corona crisis at the turn of 2020/2021 and offers a lot of space and comfort both inside and outside. In addition to a lot of technical work, new individually adjustable inverter air conditioning systems were installed in the cabins and the entire ship was freshly painted inside and out with a high-quality, non-smelling paint.
During the summer break in June, July and partly in August, renovations and painting will take place again.
THE LARGE CABINS
The upper deck has two premium and two luxury cabins, on the cabin deck there are 6 further spacious standard cabins with their own bathroom, individually adjustable new air conditioning and an additional fan. The mattresses and pillows are new, meet a good European standard and are thoroughly disinfected and cleaned before each tour. The bed linen and mattress covers are washed by a professional industrial cleaner before each departure.
The cabins are equipped with either double beds or single beds. Please ask your tour operator about this or take a look at the cabin categories with the new pictures taken in May 2021 on our website. The luxury cabins on the upper deck are larger and offer a fantastic view of the Indian Ocean from the spacious private terraces, half of which are covered. The cabins can be cleaned daily and provided with fresh towels if requested. We try not to unnecessarily pollute the underwater world with dirty water and therefore ask our guests to use towels several times.
We produce fresh water on board the AMBA ourselves. Two large, recently serviced systems ensure very good water quality that can also be used for brushing teeth. Both fresh water tanks and therefore all connections and piping are cleaned and disinfected with chlorine before every trip and during the basic cleaning. On the first day you may still notice a slight smell of chlorine. We certainly don't have any bacteria in the shower water anymore.
In the moderately (26 C) air-conditioned main salon, three fresh international meals are served daily as a buffet. The breakfast is international and the bread rolls are baked on board from fresh dough. At lunchtime there is a delicious soup as well as a rice or pasta dish, fresh salad, bruschetta, and of course a fresh fruit salad.
In the evening, everything your heart desires is properly served up. Fresh apples, bananas and oranges are available all day. The kitchen crew has been working on board the AMBA for more than 14 years and conjures up the most delicious dishes with fresh products from a local organic supplier who completely dispenses with pesticides. Of course, there is also really freshly caught fish for fish lovers. We support local small fishing families and buy the fish caught on the same day during the tour. Of course, this can also lead to days without fish.
First-class, very pure drinking water, black tea and instant coffee are included in the price. Good wines, cocktails, long drinks, beer, freshly brewed coffee or espresso as well as soft drinks and delicious fruit shakes and Electrolyte drinks as well as homemade iced tea are available at moderate prices from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the bar in the salon.
The covered outdoor saloon on the upper deck offers shade and is ideal for relaxing between dives or in the evening. A large sun deck, which is partially covered, invites you to sunbathe with sun loungers and spacious loungers.
Internet is available on board for a moderate fee. 5 GB for 25 euros.
