8Ship Type: Sailing Vessel
Meta IV is a classic wooden two-master and was constructed in 1998 as a private luxury yacht. Meta IV measures 85 feet in length or 25 meters. The Meta IV offers ample common areas and spacious cabins compared to most sailing vessels. With all her space, you could almost forget you were holidaying on a yacht. The sheer size, and the facilities on board, make for a holiday getaway that your family or friends won't forget.
The yacht was designed by the naval architect Thomas E. Colvin and is made entirely of Thai teak, one of the best woods for building classic boats. After two years of intensive restoration work and refitting, Meta IV started her new life as a luxury charter vessel in the fall of 2012.
Each of the 4 cabins has electricity and fans. Cabins each have en-suite bathrooms with showers and Western-style toilets. There is a generous dining area and kitchen in the galley. Chefs specialize in Asian cuisine but also serve Western dishes.The spacious upper deck provides for two shaded dining and seating areas as well as the cockpit in the rear area and plenty of room for relaxing, sunbathing or playing in the front and on the galley.
Cruises typically include a crew of four, comprised of an experienced skipper, a Myanmar guide, a chef and a deckhand. The ship is fully equipped with safety gear meeting international standards. Also equipped with a 15.7 liter engine, generator, and radar, the Meta IV is able to motor through when sailing conditions are not ripe. A dinghy allows for coastal explorations and beach stops along the way.
