The Galapagos Endemic
Imagine a magical world of soaring frigate birds, lumbering tortoises, frolicking sea lions and sleek sharks. Imagine cruising through cerulean waters on a luxurious, intimate yacht with your significant other, family or friends. Picture a deluxe cabin, spacious and inviting as warm sea breezes blow in gently from the balcony. The staff is courteous and professional, the naturalist guide is knowledgeable and friendly and the chef somehow sends one masterpiece after another out of the kitchen. This is your dream. This is the Galapagos Endemic.
It is not only the newest catamaran cruiser in the Enchanted Islands but also the most luxurious. The outer design is sleek, streamlined and attractive: the gentle curves of the hull and decks make the Endemic looks like part of the unique Galapagos ecosystem.
The Galapagos Cruise Experience on the Endemic
Cabins on a luxury catamaran like the Galapagos Endemic are typically much larger than cabins on old-fashioned single-hulled yachts, and ours have been created by professional designers with shipboard experience for maximum comfort and elegance.
Each cabin has personalized air conditioning control, a balcony, spacious private bathroom and either a king-size bed or two twin-size beds. Naturally, each cabin also boasts closet/drawer space as well as a writing desk and strongbox.
As you can see, the engineers and designers who built our yacht left nothing to chance. It is our privilege to provide our guests the style and comfort of the Endemic, the finest ship cruising the Galapagos Islands!
