The French-built Lagoon 500 vessel was previously owned by a Malay princess and joined the Burma Boating fleet in 2015. It sails five-night cruises and private charters in Myanmar's Mergui Archipelago.

The vessel has four passenger cabins, each with king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms and separate air conditioning. The owner's suite, situated in the starboard hull, has its own couch area and a larger bathroom. Cabins are accessed through the central saloon, where the open galley and navigation station are located. 

Meltemi has a bright, wooden interior, which gives the boat a modern feel. Amenities include a sound and video entertainment system and bow nets that passengers can lie in while the vessel is sailing. The ship has a kayak, fishing rods and snorkelling gear. A stand-up paddleboard and diving compressor is available on request. There is no internet onboard.

Cruises are fully crewed and catered and the onboard chef specializes in Thai cuisine, and can cater for dietary requests. Cruises include all onboard meals, water and nonalcoholic drinks.

The best time for sailing the Mergui Archipelago is between November and the end of April.
