Princess Grace

Princess Grace is a stunning motor yacht that was once owned by Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco. In her current representation she maintains all of her elegance, beauty and prestige. Princess Grace is the ideal yacht for the traveller who seeks a safari experience, complimented by excellent service, superb accommodations and excellent dining. She also has one of the best expert naturalist guide to guest ratios of any Galapagos yacht at 1:9.

Princess Grace can accommodate up to 16 guests within her 9 luxurious staterooms. All cabins are equipped with air conditioning, private en suite facilities, telephone, safety deposit box and ample storage space.

Guests can enjoy delicious meals either in the comfort of the interior dining room or in the al fresco dining area. The main salon is a great place to relax and socialise, complete with a TV / Video system and stereo system. Alternatively, guests can soak up the atmosphere and marvel at the beauty of the Galapagos from the spacious sundeck or in the jacuzzi. There is also an outside bar, which makes for a great vantage point for spotting local wildlife.

Princess Grace is also equipped with sea kayaks, a great way to explore the cliffs, shores and hidden coves of the various islands. Snorkeling gear and wetsuits are available for those keen to get even closer to nature and explore the fantastic marine life of one of the world's largest marine reserves.
