Originally built as a private luxury yacht, the WildAid Passion motor yacht (M/Y) has been completely refurbished while retaining many of its original elegant features, such as its rose-colored marble bathrooms and teakwood decks that make the vessel one of a kind. A vessel of great character, she now offers her guests a sense of refinement and exclusivity while providing all of the modern passenger comforts.   WildAid Passion Motor Yacht is the largest charter yacht in the Galapagos, boasting 48.5 meters in length (159 feet) spread over four decks, which means there’s an exceptional amount of space for her 12 passengers. The yacht possesses ample interior and exterior social areas, a panoramic sky lounge with bar and sliding glass doors, separate dining room and wonderfully spacious decks with a further secluded sundeck with lounge chairs and a Jacuzzi – all beautifully set off by the more than 200 square meters of fine teak decking.   All six cabins on board are fully air-conditioned and incredibly spacious. The two (2) VIP cabins not only feature king-size beds and their own en-suite restrooms (with his and her bathrooms), but each has a private lounge area as well. Meanwhile, all of the four (4) ample ocean-facing state cabins have their own private bathrooms as well – each with a tub and shower.   All six cabins are fully air-conditioned, incredibly spacious, and come with a hairdryer, high-definition TV, 110/220 volts outlets, and a USB charger.   With a 1:1 service ratio (one crewmember per guest), the M/Y Passion ensures a service second to none, while the first-class galley produces gourmet cuisine that meets international standards. When chartered, the chef will tailor each meal based on the passengers’ requests. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be served al fresco in the exterior dining area (if the weather allows) to enjoy the amazing views of the Galapagos Islands, where the sunsets and moonrises are stunning.   To fully discover the living laboratory of the Galapagos Islands, the M/Y Passion’s expert naturalist guide will lead you on daily land excursions and brief you every evening about the adventure planned for the following day.   Special occasions are taken to an entirely new level, as the yacht’s crew members are experts in hospitality and party planning. They can make a birthday, an anniversary or a family reunion the most memorable of a lifetime.
