Charaidew II

We are delighted to have chartered the RV Charaidew II for our scenic cruises along the Brahmaptura River in 2019 and 2020. Due to be launched in September 2018, this charming vessel features a range of comfortable cabins, all with French balconies. Accommodating a maximum of just 34 passengers and with an equal number of crew, the vessel will be sure to provide a friendly and welcoming atmosphere on board. With its expansive Sun Deck there is ample opportunity to watch the world gently pass by as you relax on board your floating hotel.

Please note that the images shown are of the RV Sukapha, a sister vessel to the RV Charaidew II.

Whilst the décor may differ slightly the overall look and design of the vessel once launched will be very similar to the images shown.
