PHUKET:-- A liveaboard dive tour boat valued at about B10 million was destroyed by fire while moored just offshore from the Royal Thai Navy base near Thap Lamu in Thai Muang, Phang Nga, early yesterday morning (Feb 11).


Phang Nga Marine Office Chief Nachapong Pranit confirmed that the boat – registered in Thai as “Saimai” but carrying the name “MV Moana” in English on its hull – caught fire at about 00:30am yesterday.


“There were three people on the boat at the time: the captain Amphon Phraekmuangtue, boat mechanic Wichan Namsuk and one cook. No tourists were on the boat when the fire broke out,” Chief Nachapong said.
