Elegantly designed with the help of Dutch vessel consultants and naval architects, Race Class E was built with comfort and safety in mind. 

Straight off the bat, this liveaboard is unique in that the 6 ensuite luxury cabins on her main deck all feature their own private balcony!

On the lower deck there are 4 quad share en-suite cabins, which are ideal for families or small groups. 

Also, whilst most liveaboards have TV entertainment, none besides Race Class E can boast a 60 inch 3D TV, which shows all the latest movies and is located within the spacious air conditioned saloon. 

For a small extra fee guests can head to the private massage room and receive all the pampering that they need after a day’s diving. 

The sundeck is extremely spacious and features partial shading, furniture and sun mattes. It’s the perfect place to take in the views, especially around sunset and with a drink in hand. 

This is a great liveaboard for beginners, as guests only require their open water certification and ten logged dives! For an extra fee you can hire a private dive guide. 

With Dive Class E, you can discover the legendary Similan & Surin islands in Thailand’s North Andaman Sea. Witness stunning tropical forests, deserted beaches and boulder formations above water and spectacular coral beneath. 

The pristine coral gardens and walls of the Similan and Surin National Parks are home to hawksbill turtles, black tip reef sharks and leopard sharks as well as a myriad of colourful fish, crustaceans and mollusks. 

In between dives, you can look forward to plenty of beach excursions and the friendly and fun loving crew will also prepare giant inflatables to play on.

Race Class E has some awesome unique amenities and a fantastic itinerary that explores Thailand’s best diving region – with these things in mind, it’s quite surprising to see that she is also one of the least expensive liveaboards.

"We had a great time - we have dived with DiveRace a number of times from Singapore (Tioman Malaysia and Anambas Indonesia) but this was first time in Similan Islands leaving from Phuket area. As ever the whole team were tremendous - Ferri was an excellent Dive Leader, Philippe was fun to dive with and Other divers said Mas was too. I think I put on 3KG from all the wonderful food!!! Viz was not the best but all the plankton meant we saw lots of cool stuff - Deep Sea Manta Rays, Sea Horses, Harlequin Shrimp, Octopus, Nudis huge Barracuda and Andaman Anemone Fish (Red with Black spots - not Orange and white) plus many many shoals of reef fish. Whole experience was perfect from start to end and I would recommend DiveRace to anyone looking for a great live aboard experience".

"Richelieu Rock - best visibility and quantity of marine life. A whole day was spent there instead if the planned two dives. In fact you could spend a whole week there and not see everything".

Scuba fanatic, travel ecstatic and loveable rogue. A rootless divemaster and perpetual adrenaline-junky, Alex holds the esteemed rank of Grand Admiral of the Diving Squad; a title he most nobly awarded to himself. A scuba-junky since 2014, he's dived much of the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Red Sea, Ireland, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama. It's hard to say where he'll pop up next for he never settles; forever a leaf on the wind... or perhaps a lone bubble blasted along on the current.
