The Junk

Economy & Premium Liveaboards Similan Islands

The Phuket liveaboard June Hong Chian Lee (a.k.a The Junk) was built in the port city of Penang, Malaysia in 1962. She was originally designed to carry mango wood charcoal, which she did until 1985. She was then turned into a classic yacht and in 1997; a two-year overhaul began to turn her into the stunning liveaboard vessel that she is today. Movie buffs may recognize her distinctive shape from her big screen cameos in The Man With The Golden Gun, Shanghai and the Swiss Family Robinson. But don’t let the classic looks fool you; she is fitted with all the mod cons. Air-con in all inside spaces, TV, DVD and an extensive library inside the saloon and a foredeck that is perfect for sipping cocktails as the sun goes down.
