The MY Andaman Explorer was built as the MV Atlantic Guard in 1963 in Norway as a Norwegian coast guard vessel. She is 61 metres long with her original Rolls Royce engines. She retired from coast guard duties in 1998 and was acquired by Doctor Bogazzi, an Italian oligarch whose family owns the Carrara marble quarries. Dr Bogazzi lavished many a million on the ship, now renamed the MY Marina, completely refitting her with eleven very generous suites and a jacuzzi on deck. Much of the ship is floored with Carrara marble. In recent times she has belonged to a powerful shipping family based in Dubai who maintained the ship to a very high standard. She is now undergoing redecoration in Thailand so the photos of the interiors shown here are as she is now and not as she will be once...
