The Hong Chian Lee Junk was built in Penang, Malaysia.

Built in 1962 to transport charcoal, the Hong Chian Lee Junk was part of a merchant fleet operating from Malaysia to the Burmese coast.

She was mainly used to transport charcoal and mangoes until 1985 when it was bought out, restored and refitted to be used as a classic yacht. In 1997, she changed ownership and was completely refurbished and fitted with modern amenities to become a diving cruise ship.
