RV Mahaythi

Cruise company: RV Mahaythi

Cruise type: Midrange, Private

Destinations: Myanmar - Myanmar

RV Mahaythi is the first ever tourist class boat introduced Yangon river sightseeing cruises since 2006 October. It started with day cruise tours to Twante and Yangon River sunset cruises on daily guarantee departure basic. Up on completion of our second vessel RV Mahaythi-02, we have extended our operation by running overnight cruises to Ayeyarwaddy Delta Area on charter basic as well as regular departure basic. Unfortunately, our frist boat was destroyed in May 2008 by Tropical Cyclone Nargis. Then, we have replaced her with two smaller boats named RV Mahaythi-01 and RV Mahaythi-03.

Mahaythi is licensed by the Department of Marine Administrationand Ministry of Hotels & Tourism as a passenger-carrying vessel and also licensed as a floating restaurant. Her elegance and comfort make 'Mahaythi' equally suitable for business entertainment, holidays or for that special occasion such as a honeymoon cruise.Based on an antique rice and sand carrying barge, 'Mahaythi' is almost totally constructed from Thingan wood and furbished with Golden Teaks; she has many unique concepts which make her stand out from the other barges on the river. After an extensive re-furbishing program, the barge 'Mahaythi' is the latest, first ever, and undoubtedly, most tourist class vessel to enter the Yangon river trade. Catering to travellers and business persons alike, 'Mahaythi' plies the Yangon River and Twante Canal and its tributaries, providing an unforgetable trip and facilities in a luxurious yet traditional style. Her air-conditioned upper deck includes an air-conditioned lounge and dining area that is inspired by turn of the century colonial architecture. It can accommodte up to 20 clients for dinning. Below deck could also accommodate 4 to 10 passengers in the relaxation style. Our fleet currently consists of three boats which can accommodate different numbers of clients comfortably


In order to accomplish our commitment to continuous improvement of our facilities and services, RV Mahaythi-02 was constructed and in service since October 2007. She was almost totally constructed with Golden teak and added many unique concepts that were missed in the first boat which makes her stand out from the other boats on the river.



She is another replacement boats for former RV Mahaythi which was destroyed by Cyclone Nargis. She used to be a shallow water pulling boat for bamboos and logs in upper Myanmar. We refurblished it in December 2008 and now it is serving her clients.



RV-04 is now underway for her renovation project. She would be ready to serve our client before end of October 2013. Up on her finish of renovation works, she would be able to serve 65 passengers for day cruises. She will become a part of our fleet for Mandalay-Bagan-Mandalay ferry route.



We are introducing another unique vessel to the market soon for Upper Myanmar Exploration tours. She was once a traditional cargo Barge used in shallow water area like Monwya, Bhamaw, Mandalay, Bagan and Chindwin River. She is also under her renovation works and targeted to finish and service in coming November 2013
