Boat design

The two sister boats Dragon Eyes I and Dragon Eyes II were build in the traditional style of the Mekong Delta river boats of An Giang Province. Their elegant, slender and shallow hulls enable the Dragon Eyes to cruise also the secondary side canals which are too small for the larger cruisers to explore. There we find serene river front life that makes the Mekong Delta so unique.

At the same time the boats are big enough to provide you with ample space for relaxation and privacy. Each of the Dragon Eyes provides around 100 m2 for its guests:

Two spacy private cabins (14 - 16 m2), providing a nicely designed bath room, a French balcony, sitting area, individual air conditioning, fans and fantastic river views through the panorama windows.

In the indoor panorama lounge you can watch the hustle and bustle of the Mekong Delta sitting in the cool and cosy front salon with air condition and large panorama windows and 270° views on the river.

On the sun deck on the top deck you can enjoy a sun bath while watching the scenery passing by. Indulge in the culinary specialities of Vietnam in the roofed outdoor restaurant or enjoy a sun-downer in your private bar on the top deck - all with fantastic river views.

Our crew of five will do their utmost to provide you with all the services and comfort you need. Your captain and his deck hand are in charge of the technical details and the routing. An experienced chef and the service staff will take you on a culinary journey through Vietnam. Your personal guide and cruise director show you all the sights you need to see and will explain life and culture of the Mekong Delta. Our staff get regular safety trainings. They will do their best to fulfill the special requests of our customers.

The boats were built by local ship builders from following traditional designs. The cabins and the interior were build by Vietnamese master craftsmen. Most interiors and furnitures are built from exclusive tropical woods, where available with certification for sustainable forest plantation. All critical technical equipment like engine, navigation, rudder, air-conditioning, water purification or fire protection system are imported from Japan or Europe.
