Diving boat

About dive boat

Hey there! Welcome to our page about the Buddy Boat! We’re thrilled to show you around our dive boat that offers scuba diving, freediving, and snorkelling in Malta. The Phoenix 29 boat model is the perfect fit for our versatile design, praised by fishermen and divers worldwide. Let’s get started with a tour!

The Saloon

First up, the saloon! It’s equipped with a comfortable kitchen, shower, and toilet, accommodating up to 6 people. For all you tea and coffee lovers, there’s a coffee maker and kettle, and a microwave for quick snacks. Plus, multiple charging stations so you never have to worry about a dead battery on your phone, computer, or underwater camera.

Dive deck

Moving on to the dive deck, originally a sport fishing boat, our Phoenix 29 has an unusually large cockpit. We’ve equipped it with mounting for 18 cylinders, trempels for wet and dry wetsuits, and hinged drawers for small accessories. There’s even a tub for desalination regulators and cameras, and an underwater base for decompression stops. Comfortably accommodating 6 divers, everyone has a place for their equipment.

Swim deck

Don’t forget about the swim deck! We’ve enlarged and strengthened it, installed a comfortable diver’s gangway, and a handrail for getting out of the water without removing your fins. And if you’re looking for some tailwind, head to the flybridge or skipper’s area. Here, you’ll find the main helm and navigation equipment, along with seating areas and places to stand with your arms spread out.


Last but not least, power supply and motors. With the BLUETTI AC500 + B300S system, Buddy Boat has several days of autonomy, and the cabin has 8 USB and 4 type-C sockets for charging. The two Volvo diesel engines, totalling 400 HP, provide a cruising speed of 15 knots.
