MY Drenec

Drenec was built in the Netherlands as a working boat designed to spend long weeks on the open seas.

In 1986, she underwent a major overhaul and was reborn as a high-class expedition vessel. Drenec spent the following years on expeditions to the Arctic, the Indian Ocean, Central American waters and the Mediterranean.

In 2012, she was completely refitted and upgraded in Malta with the interior designed by Sophie Bouakel-Kastelein.

Drenec joined the fleet in 2015 to explore the wonders of Myanmar’s hidden islands.

Behind the cockpit is the triple stateroom. The entire aft of the boat is shaded and fitted with multiple dining spaces and sunbathing areas.

The boat’s centre is dominated by the generous galley and saloon dining area. But chances are that you’ll be enjoying most of your meals outside in the sun or in Myanmar’s mild evenings.
