The FeBrina was built in 1972 in West Australia and has been refurnished and modernised in the years 1977, 2010, and 2013. The ship has a length of 22 meters and consists of a stable steel hull with steel-aluminium superstructures. It has three decks.
The main deck is the centre of activities. Guests have their meals in the dining area and relax in the lounge. The diving area with the diving platform is located in the stern. A sun deck is also available. The upper deck comprises the crew quarters, the wheelhouse and the laundry..
A maximum of twelve guests stay in seven cabins on the lower deck that is accessed via a steep, ladder-like staircase. All cabins are equipped with air conditioning and a good supply of towels (changed daily). All cabins are designed with functionality in mind. The cabins 1 and 2 have their own bathrooms. Cabins 3 and 4 are twin cabins (bunk beds) and have their own bathrooms as well. These cabin are located behind the engine room. In front there are cabins 5 and 6 (two bunk beds each) and a master cabin with queen-sized bed and individual bathroom (shower and toilet are separate).
Dinner is served in the air-conditioned salon (don’t forget to bring a sweater!). The crew is very helpful and ready to assist you in anything you need. Please let them know in advance if you have special dietary needs. All meals and drinks for dinner are included; the bill for soft drinks and anything else is settled at the end of the trip.
The crew of FeBrina is well-experienced in catering for the needs of videographers and photographers and provides camera tables and storage and power connections for charging (Australian adapter necessary!).
Enthusiastic divers enjoy the up to 5 dives a day. Diving takes place directly from the ship (no dinghies). The captain of the FeBrina has been travelling in the waters around New Britain and in the Bismarck Archipelago for more than 25 years. The dive guides have been working on board for many years and never cease to amaze with their exceptional expertise. Diving is highly versatile, including muck diving, drift dives, walls and coral opulence. The dive spots between New Britain and Papua New Guinea’s northern coast are famous for their biodiversity and the intactness of the coral reefs.
