It is with deep regret that we need to inform you that VIP One has been severely damaged during fires at the Suez dry dock on the evening of Friday 29th January 2010. Fortunately, no persons were injured in the blaze, which also destroyed other well known Red Sea Liveaboards. The fire, which started on another boat, quickly became out of control and efforts by the fire crews could not prevent the fire from spreading from boat to boat, destroying everything in its path.
After the fire had been extinguished and on viewing the dry dock, we can give you an update regarding the position of VIP One. Although VIP One was affected by the fire, the proximity of the boat to the other 4 -that are truly destroyed- has meant that the damage is limited compared to the other boats.
If all goes to plan, VIP One will be back in the water and resuming normal schedule within 2-3 months. We are already making alternative arrangements for the very early part of the season should it be required.
So we will not be absent from the 2010 liveaboard scene.
Looking forward to a new season!
