The Curacao Princess
A Mike Fitz 42 foot dive boat. This is the only boat we had when we started in 2003. New engines – 350 horse power Caterpillar twin engines – were added to give her new life in 2008.
She has two sister ships in Bonaire. One is named the Coral Sea.
The Curacao Phoenix
Our most comfortable and versatile dive boat, equipped with Twin Caterpillar engines (450 horse power each). This really is the Cadillac of boats!
Originally the private diving boat, named Happy Diver, on a mega-yacht. Before setting sail for Curacao this boat had been on the deck of the mega yacht after a short dive trip in the red sea.
The Phoenix was sailed to Curacao from Ft. Lauderdale by our team of Captains.
The Curacao Star
A 36-foot Seahawk 360 Divemaster built in 2006. Our second dive boat so we wanted really big engines.
