Introduction

The June Hong Chian Lee known as “The Junk” was built in Malaysia in Penang. Made in Teak wood, it is thirty meters long with about 330 square meters of sails.

It was built 1962 for charcoal transportation from Burma to Malaysia. Until 1985 the junk was used to transport merchandises as wood, mango and charcoal. Then it was modified to serve as a Yacht. The Junk was sold in 1997 and was restored and optimized to serve as a liveaboard.

All cabins have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning. There is a large salon used as a stylish restaurant.
