MV Liseron Review

Review of MV Liseron

The 1952-built cruise ship MV Liseron and the fleetmate MV Mist Cove are the perfect boats for fishing charters, wilderness discovery adventures or family travel vacations. The Boat Company (shipowner) has spent around 40 years cruising Alaska, offering small-ship tours carrying just 20-24 passengers. This provides a more intimate setting, a higher degree of personal attention and greater freedom to go “off-itinerary”.

Liseron cruise ship (The Boat Company)

The vessel is currently Australia-flagged (MMSI 503409900).


MV Liseron has 10 staterooms (6 on the main deck, 4 on the upper “skiff” deck), all with queen-sized bed and twin upper bunk. There are temperature controls in each stateroom, roomy built-in wardrobe, dresser and several drawers, as well as a private bath with sink, hairdryer, toilet and stall shower. The screened picture-frame windows may be opened.

Shipboard facilities

The Liseron ship was launched in 1952 in Tacoma (WA USA) and was later sold to France to serve as a minesweeper. It was acquired and restored by The Boat Company in 1989.

Accommodating only 20 passengers, the boat features a comfortable main salon (common room), a cozy entertainment lounge, an open bar (for beer, wine, premium liquors and non-alcoholic drinks), an enclosed observation lounge and library.

All meals and snacks are prepared fresh by the onboard chef and are included in the fare. The company provides trained naturalist guides, entertaining and educational presentations, as well as hiking, beachcombing, nature walks, picnics, kayaking, fishing and wildlife viewing (binoculars are at hand in every room).
