OUR BOAT

The impressive Yacht, was exclusively built to serve as the trusted vessel for today's discoverers on their journey to shed light on the hidden secrets of the Red Sea. Royal Evolution is a sleek 39m. The sheer stature of this four deck yacht as it towers over the water with purposeful style and once on board, the enticing comfort and class of the accommodation are two fantastic reasons to choose the Royal Evolution. 

OUR CABINS

There are 8 guest cabins in the Lower Deck and 4 Main Deck cabins. All have air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom - with tub shower, fridge, TV and video player. 2 of the Main Deck cabins are Twins and 2 are Doubles. There is a supplement to be paid at the time of booking for the Main Deck cabins so please do ask if they are of interest to you. One of the Main Deck cabins is fully converted for wheelchair access - please call to discuss Royal Evolution's protocols regarding wheelchair Divers. 

AMENITIES

With choices of 2 Sundecks and an enormous Saloon there is always a peaceful corner for relaxing. The Bar and Jacuzzi form the social hubs of the boat. Comfortable lounge areas are amply provided in the air conditioned interior. 

FOOD ON BOARD

When building this liveaboard the goal was to build something unique, not only in design, but also in service. After all, a delicious snack or dinner made with love and devotion will ensure that there is enough power for the next underwater adventure. Instead of the predominant liveaboard food, the Royal Evolution provides clients at the top end of the World's adventure holiday market with all the facilities of a first class hotel, a spacious dining area is the place for hearty meals, relaxed conversation and the beginnings of friendship. After a day's diving and an evening of wining and dining there are times when an armchair beckons. 

DIVING IN THE AREA

Liveaboard Diving in the Red Sea is spectacular, the land known for its ancient history, Pharaohs and Pyramids, is also a Mecca for Scuba Divers and Snorkellers. Wrecks, colourful corals and big fish abound but it's the off-shore sites only reachable by dive liveaboards which can provide the ultimate thrill and the best experience.

Egypt and Sudan share not only a land border but are also linked by the sea. The Deep South of the Egyptian Red Sea flows seamlessly into Northern Sudanese waters. The marine life that abounds in this region shares no respect for any geographic boundaries.
