Tradition, comfort & flexibility

Accommodation on board Thailand and Myanmar’s most iconic diving liveaboard.


The Junk proudly presents her sister boat: The Phinisi, officially known as ‘Cheng I Sao’. The Phinisi (pronounced: Pinisi) operates liveaboard cruises in Thailand and Myanmar.
While a remarkable history and character unites the two yachts, The Phinisi complements The Junk by offering a variety of itineraries in Thailand, plus another exciting destination: the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar!
