Don Questo was built in Selby, England in 1964 as a trawling
1984 she was transformed into an oceanographic research vessel
under the Italian flag.
1991 she had a complete overhaul and in 1998 the Don Questo
was fitted out to become a diving liveaboard ship. New toilets
and cabins were added, the restaurant and kitchen were renovated,
state of the art compression systems were installed and a hydraulic
platform was built.
diving area is arranged as a long bench with slots to store
your cylinder. Dive gear can be stowed away underneath the bench.
The compressor system runs along this bench which makes it very
easy to re-fill your cylinders instead of having to move them.
Don Questo is the only ship in Sudan to have a recompression
chamber on board.
