Bassac Cruise I actually once was a rice barge, which we bought and overhauled into the cozy cabin cruiser it is today, and although Bassac Cruise II and III are entirely new hull designs, more adapted to their present purpose, they were built with the same craftsmanship and according to the same tradition.

The cabins feature soundproofed partitions and double glazing to protect the passengers’ sleep from the noises of the river. These partitions are also heat insulated and meant to slow fire in case of an emergency. The access to outside is immediate. The cabins are scented by Laurent Séverac, perfumer in Hanoi. All the cabins have air-conditioning; with split systems to allow for a quiet night –indeed the boat’s equipment themselves are quiet even though some must run all night long.

The passengers can enjoy privacy on board, as the layout allows the crew to be discreet and offers several living areas so that different groups may make the journey their own. Wide access to outside while still retaining the capability to serve even in bad weather guarantee a good experience of the Mekong Delta.
