Stella Maris Galapagos Charters
Offering only private charters, and touting itself as one of the most luxurious yachts based in the Galapagos Islands, the Stella Maris motor yacht responds to the most demanding and discerning clientele. This is a unique Galapagos sailing ship, for unique explorers, in a unique destination.
Accommodating up to 14 guests in the ultimate of style, the ship is available for fully customized private charters or for complete pre-established 8-day cruise itineraries in which you and your party can thoroughly explore the “cageless zoo” of the Galapagos Islands from end-to-end.
The yacht’s interior boasts a clean and inviting contemporary décor, with well-appointed panoramic windows that allow for natural light. Luxurious accommodations — the likes of which have never been seen in the islands — set the tone of the yacht. This lavish ship features seven (7) suites: four (4) expansive suites on the aft/lower deck, two (2) suites on the front main deck, as well as one (1) master suite on the second aft deck, with this master suite featuring its own private access to an outdoor lounge. All suites are fully air-conditioned and offer private en-suite facilities. Note that as each of these spacious suites has its own private balcony, yours will become your own private sanctuary.
Aboard the luxury Stella Maris yacht, guests will find plenty of exterior living space. On the main deck, aft doors lead to a large shaded social area, perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining. This deck also features a beautiful central staircase that provides separation from the luxurious formal dining room and the ample living room with TV entertainment. The upper deck has a spacious aft deck, complete with open-air dining and a wet bar. In turn, the sundeck’s elegant design is complemented by a spa pool tub, chaise lounges, and spectacular views. Kayaks are also available for use. In addition, this 38-meter-long ship is specially designed and refitted to be as ecologically friendly as possible so that it does not disrupt the delicate balance of the islands.
These grand appointments and an attentive crew are important aspects contributing to the overall experience aboard the cruise; however, the ship’s savory is its crowning jewel. The M/Y Stella Maris’ exquisite cuisine and its excellent selection of wines & spirits are available 24 hours a day, while among the crew are some of the most qualified chefs.
But a trip in the “living laboratory” of the Galapagos is more than sunning on a ship’s deck. This destination is home to a vast array of wildlife – from tropical penguins and schools of manta rays to giant land tortoises. Visitors can enjoy diverse experiences such as swimming with playful sea lion cubs, taking leisurely walks along the beach, or witnessing the kaleidoscope of brilliantly colored fish while snorkeling. From the Stella Maris, you can explore volcanoes, vertical cliffs, and caves on expertly guided naturalist tours that provide endless hours of exploration and fascination.
The best part is that the expedition is dedicated just for you, making this a real VIP cruise! There’s no better way to revel in the beauty of the archipelago than booking a private cruise, and there’s no better yacht for this than the Stella Maris. It will take you to your own private Galapagos!
