Paukan 1947 (as it was originally named) is an original colonial era twin screw steamer, built in 1947. The famous shipbuilding company of Yarrow & Co. of Clyde on the River in Glasgow built the Pandaw for the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company.

By 2014 we will have twelve beautifully crafted Pandaw ships in operation that we built ourselves. Each ship, hand finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen are in themselves objects of great beauty.
The secret of our success is that on our ships, whilst luxury and comfort are discreetly present, it is the colonial character and friendly atmosphere that predominate. All our Pandaws have ultra-shallow drafts and can travel to remote areas, which would be unreachable by other vessels, let alone overland.

Arriving in Myanmar in 1950, under the ownership of the Inland Water Transport Board (IWTB) she ran on the Irrawaddy River from Mandalay to Bhamo, one of the most popular routes on this great river. She began a luxury life as a passenger cruiser in 1998, under the management of a new Irrawaddy Flotilla Company and was taken over in 2003 by Ayravata Cruises after extensive renovations and refurbishing.

The vessel was renamed Rv Paukan1947 in the 2011. On boardhere are altogether 16 teak-walled deluxe cabins with proper beds and hot and cold showers.

 

The lovely Paukan is a boutique hotel on the river, beautifully furnished with a unique combination of modern and traditional motifs. The timber-walled cabins are furnished with colonial style cupboards, dresser and doors while the ceiling is traditional Myanmar.

 

The single or double beds are proper and comfortable ones and not mere bunks, enough room for 55 passengers who will be looked after by a 30-member crew
There is one main deck with cabins, an upper deck with cabins and a dining room at the stern and a salon at the prow.
