Philippine Siren


Philippine Siren (Worldwide Dive and Sail)

The 40-metre Philippine Siren was built in Sulawesi from ironwood and teak and in the style of a gaft-rigged Phinisi. The Worldwide Dive and Sail team have used valuable lessons from their previous sailing yachts to incorporate features that offer luxurious comfort and safety and are proud to say “built by divers for divers”.

Philippine Siren can take up to 16 divers in 8 air-conditioned, luxury, spacious cabins which offer a choice of bed configurations. Cabins 1 & 3 have queen-sized beds. Cabins 4 & 5 can be configured as double or twin beds and Cabins 6 & 7 have three single beds, but are only ever allocated to 2 guests unless requested by family or friends, or if a whole boat is required. Cabin 8 is the ‘owner’s cabin’ and has a double bed. The cabin is a little smaller but has the advantage of a separate entrance and is the most stable cabin on the boat. Each of Philippine Siren’s cabins have a personal computer, audio visual system and en-suite bathrooms. Luxury touches such as hair dryers, individually controlled lighting and air conditioning along with massage service, and laundry service mean that quality is not compromised. There is an expansive leisure deck area for relaxation and an air conditioned saloon with cocktail bar, large flat screen and computer server supporting the inter-cabin network. The covered outdoor dining area offers super sea views while you enjoy gourmet dining.

Special services for underwater photographers include individual computers in each cabin along with multiple power outlets. The computer has a 20” flatscreen and is integrated into the yacht’s network server. There are workstations for the preparation and maintenance of cameras and large rinse tanks used only for cameras and videos. Diving usually takes place from one of Philippine Siren’s two powerful zodiacs. Nitrox is included in the holiday price for all Nitrox certified divers.

Safety is of paramount importance so Philippine Siren has been designed and constructed to the highest safety standards based on Lloyd’s Standards, the leading international body of maritime safety standards. The crew is specially trained in all aspects of safety including emergency and evacuation procedures. The boat is equipped with life rafts, life jackets, fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, emergency long distance radios and satellite phones.
