Le Bassac Cruise

Descriptions:

The Bassac II in particular and the Bassac family in general is entirely built of wood in a hull of gỗ sao, the now rare essence of wood used traditionally used for building quality ships. She can accommodate up to 24 passengers in twelve nicely decorated cabins, each with air-con and a private bathroom, and features a 500 sqft restaurant that opens all around, a large galley, a small office room and 1500 sqft of upper deck, mostly covered.

The Bassac II can take her passengers on cruises up to seven days without stopping, and offers a great flexibility in programming your journey. She also is so powerful and has such a shallow draft as to be able to cruise upstream the Mekong or bring you to your destination regardless of the season, the tide or the current

Cabins

Layout 8 cabins in the front of the main deck:
6 with twin bedding, 2 with a double bed.

2 small double-bedded cabins on the upper deck

2 large double-bedded cabins in the front of the hull.

Services Heat and sound insulation in each cabin.
Air conditioning, private access.
En suite bathroom with shower and toilet

The comfortable cabins are set in the front of the Bassac II or on the upper deck and well insulated so as to provide the passengers with a good night's sleep even if under way.
They are entirely fitted with wood, and equipped as rooms in a good hotel.
Owing to a large heat exchanger on the main engines, the Bassac II produces enough hot water for many showers a day.

Public areas

Restaurant and bar
The 500 square feet at the stern of the main deck accommodate the restaurant and the bar can be completely opened to outside for you to enjoy the evening.

Upper deck
1500 square feet, mostly shaded.
The front is fit for sunbathing and rest on sunbathing couches;
The bar at the back welcomes you for a drink outside as the sun sets.
Most of the Bassac II is accessible to the public, including the galley, which is the right venue for Vietnamese cuisine workshops to take place.
Each passenger can opt to join with the group in one of the common rooms, or look for a place to stay by oneself.
