The Junk Liveaboard in Thailand is a 33 metre Chinese sailing vessel, The Junk – June Hong Chian Lee Liveaboard.
She started life as a cargo ship in Malaysia in 1962. After arriving in Thailand in the early eighties, she was redesigned as a pleasure craft. In 1997, she was fully converted into a liveaboard diving vessel. There are no other vessels of her heritage left in the world; she truly is a unique boat!
She accommodates a maximum of 18 guests in three cabin types – double, twin and quad share – all with an en-suite bathroom and individual air conditioning controls.
The spacious salon also serves as the dining area and a place to prepare photo or video equipment. There is a library, movie collection and entertainment system.
Her huge deck allows divers to suit up in comfort and relax between dives. Diving is conducted with the experienced dive crew and uses the dinghy drop-off/pick-up system to allow divers to get dropped in the ideal location on the reefs and pinnacles for the best entry point. The Junk is renowned for the high level of service her crew provides.
Her claim to fame is having been featured in several movies, most notably James Bond’s “The Man with the Golden Gun” and recently, “Shanghai” starring John Cusack and Gong Li. As such, she is one of the most recognisable and well-known liveaboards in the region.
