Introducing MY Drenec

Drenec was built in the Netherlands as a working boat designed to spend long weeks on the open seas.

In 1986, she underwent a major overhaul and was reborn as a high-class expedition vessel. Drenec spent the following years on expeditions to the Arctic, the Indian Ocean, Central American waters and the Mediterranean.

In 2012, she was completely refitted and upgraded in Malta.

Drenec joined Burma Boating’s fleet in 2015 to explore the wonders of Myanmar’s hidden islands.

Cabins & Quarters

Drenec has five spacious guest cabins, four with double beds and one with a twin bed. All cabins have ensuite bathrooms equipped with heated towel holders and the large owner’s suite additionally features a bathtub.

With designated workspaces and sofas, the cabins feel like comfortable hotel rooms, designed with great love for detail.

All cabins are fully air-conditioned and have flatscreen TV sets. Guests have access to the large digital movie library through the yacht’s on-board media system.

Drenec has all the luxury comfort you can expect from a yacht of her size.
