North Sulawesi Aggressor
 
The 107ft aluminium North Sulawesi Aggressor was built in 1988 but was refurbished throughout in 2000, with new air-conditioning plants, compressors & gen sets, redecorated cabins & saloon, a redesigned upper deck allowing for the addition of an extra suite and a new hot tub on the sun deck. For those who can’t keep away from the office email allows communication with the wider world via the ship’s modern satphone.

Upon boarding the North Sulawesi Aggressor the first thing you will notice is the expansive dive deck that takes up the back third of the boat. Individual gear bins & tank racks allow each diver their own personal space, and separate rinse tanks for dive gear & cameras are provided. A large camera table with under storage allows budding photographers to tinker to their heart’s content! At seas level there is a large dive platform with easy entry/exit ladders and 2 freshwater showers to rinse off after a dive. At the forward end of the dive deck is a head for those who can’t wait! Either air or Nitrox is available, fed to your tank by whips from the huge banks housed in the engine room. Then boat also has a deco station that can be suspended under the boat, with integrated air/EAN capabilities with 02 clean regulators for divers who performing extended range or semi-technical diving. The North Sulawesi Aggressor dive crew allows you to maximise your time at Truk, giving you the choice of doing as many or as few dives as you wish.

Forward of the dive deck is the main superstructure, which houses the galley and dining area, with proper tables & chairs for the full compliment of guests. Breakfast & dinner are served here, while lunch is eaten al fresco on the shaded sun deck. Forward of this is the saloon (or salon, as the Americans like to call it, though I am yet to have my hair done on a dive boat!), with comfy sofas a massive 27" wide screen TV, video editing suite and music system. A large library of CDs, videos and books allows you to watch those old movies, listen to the latest in Trukese garage & house and read trashy novels to your heart’s content! An excellent range of fish identification books and reference books on the WWII wrecks and action in Truk are available for your usage, as is a large battery charging area. Slide tables, projector & screen allow you to view your slides once the photographic professional aboard the boat has processed them. (E6 processing only.) Large panoramic windows on 3 sides give wonderful views of the surrounding islands.

2 sets of stairs in the dining area take you below decks to the 6 of the 7 twin cabins that constitute the bulk of accommodation on the North Sulawesi Aggressor. Each has a queen-sized bed below and single bunk above, en suite bathrooms and individually controlled air-conditioning. The 7th cabin is accessed by stairs down from the saloon to the forward section of the boat, near the separate crews quarters.

From the dive deck a stairway takes you to the upper deck. The forward section, over the galley, diving area and saloon, contains the bridge, captain’s quarters and the 8th guest cabin. A quad cabin, with 2 sets of single bunk beds, en suite bathroom and individually controlled air-conditioning, this cabin is larger than the others, but is offered at a slightly reduced rate to the twin cabins. Aft of here is the partially shaded sun deck. The covered area contains a bar, cold drink fridges and a cosy seating area for you to admire the scenery. On the open sun deck astern can be found the hot tub and sun loungers for those who like to boil the nitrogen in the their blood or fry their skin in the tropical sun!!!!

Having undergone her refit in late 2000 the North Sulawesi Aggressor is now a state-of-the-art dive vessel offering the finest range of dive facilities to be found anywhere in the world.
