MV Virgo

The MV Virgo is a 105 foot (32 metre) motor yacht with plenty of space for only 15 divers accommodated in 8 cabins. Virgo is a good option if you are looking for a smaller liveaboard, with a bit of luxury on a budget. It is one of the few liveaboards in the Maldives that is rebreather friendly and can support Poseidon MKVI, AP Vision and manual megaldon units.

7 night trips depart Male including Best of the Maldives and 5 Atolls Sharktastic itineraries depending on the season. Special and longer itineraries may be requested by charter groups.
