Grace

Cruise the Galapagos on Princess Grace Kelly’s former personal yacht with 18 privileged passengers aboard. With a classical Mediterranean yacht design, this luxurious yacht features interiors designed by Ecuador’s top-known interior designer Adriana Hoyos. Including a large salon, a stern resting area, al fresco dining, and a large sundeck, the M/Y Grace doesn’t disappoint. The cabins include private bathrooms with room service available. The elite staff is available 24/7 including a gourmet chef and a bilingual naturalist guide. The Grace was designed to enjoy the beautiful natural history of the Galapagos while keeping it as classy as Princess Grace herself.

The Grace is a luxury yacht with capacity for 18 guests in nine spacious staterooms, five of which have twin beds and four of which have double beds. This intimate and luxurious yacht has a stabilizer system for smooth sailing, a main salon with plush sofas and an entertainment system, and a front sun deck with a hot tub and ample space for sunbathing. Delicious, high-quality cuisine can be enjoyed inside or outside. The Grace is also ideal for private charters for a special shared adventure with family or close friends.

SERVED THE BRITISH ROYAL NAVY DURING WWII

Built in 1928 in Southampton, England, the Grace has been owned by millionaire tycoons and royalty, and even was selected to serve in the British Royal Navy during WWII.

BETTER ACCESS TO HARD TO GET TO COASTAL SPOTS

Due to her smaller size, the Grace is able to visit certain sites in the Galapagos that larger ships are banned from.

IDEAL FOR couples and families – this is the most elegant yacht in the Galapagos with a rich aristocratic history

Grace is one of our preferred ships when travelling in GALAPAGOS
