RV Kalaw Pandaw

  • Ship Overview
  • River Cruises
Kalaw Pandaw - Exterior

Sister to Kindat, and identical in design, Kalaw was launched  in 2014 and is named after the PS Kalaw launched in 1917 and sunk in 1942 in the War.  Paul Strachan witnessed the salvaging of PS Kalaw in 1998 and managed to acquire her name plate and bell, the former of which has been reused on her namesake. Like Kindaw, Kalaw perfects the concept of a two deck shallow draft vessel.  A vessel that could go just about anywhere, anytime, and was big enough to carry 30-40 passengers with lots of outdoor deck space. This was achieved by reducing weight and stripping both hull and superstructure down to the bare essentials. Pandaw had found with other vessels that about half the passengers want to eat outside and the other half inside so have created a flexible bistro space offering passenger indoor or outdoor dining depending on inclination, often prompted by the season. This makes for a very happy ship! The ship has quality mountain bikes for your independent exploration. .
