Cruise the Galapagos onboard Grace Kelly’s former yacht

About M/Y Grace

The stellar past of this 16-guest Camper & Nicholson yacht includes ownership by millionaire tycoons, the royalty of Monaco, and a stint in the British Navy during WWII. Guests who cruise aboard the M/Y Grace will get to experience the islands the way Darwin did in the past: personally and privately, but with the added distinction, comfort and elegance of today. Cruise the Galapagos Islands like a Prince and Princess, aboard Grace Kelly’s royal honeymoon yacht.

M/Y Grace is an authentic classic adventure yacht for those seeking to explore  the  Galapagos  in  true  style.  Her  history  includes  distinguished  service in the British Navy during WWII and a pedigree that lays claim to ownership  by  tycoons,  industrialists  and  royalty.  Her  comfortable  and  tastefully designed cabins offer full ensuite bathrooms. There are three levels  on  which  to  relax  outdoors  and  under  shade  while  inside,  the  yacht  is  fully  air  conditioned.

The  main  saloon,  where  your  guide  will  give  presentations  on  the  each  day’s  activities,  provides  a  relaxing  environment  with  a  full  entertainment  center.  An  onboard  boutique  carries   both   necessities   and   souvenirs.   M/Y   Grace  provides  fine onboard dining in both her dining room and al fresco on the rear deck. At sunset,  happy  hour  is  a  highlight  atop  the  sky  lounge  bar  and  is  often  accompanied by leaping dolphins and rays. Did we mention the yacht’s sundeck and sizable Jacuzzi to warm up in after snorkeling?
