Bassac III 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 III 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.
Owing to its large engines and specially
designed hydraulics, the Bassac III can pull up to 12 knots and go upstream
the powerful Mekong, even facing strong currents.
As the Bassac III has a shallow draft, she can go through all the main
waterways regardless of the tide.
