Evolution | Yacht

Evolution

Our vision for this mega-yacht is to give our passengers the feeling of going on board a vessel that brings back memories of travels to far away and exotic lands. She looks as boats did in the 1920's but brings a level of comfort and safety of today. Our clients will live an experience of close contact with nature on land and in the water... the Voyager way. The most important issue for us is to show our clients the Islands at their best. Our Nature is Galapagos...

The M/V Evolution is a 192 ft / 58.5 m. L.O.A. Cruise Ship that accommodates up to 32 passengers in 16 cabins, single or twinOutfitted for individual passengers or chartersspecial family departures and departures for the more active groups, she offers a mix of beautifully furnished salons, open decks and private areas for those looking for a close experience with the surrounding environment.

This vessel preserves the smaller boat atmosphere and attention to detail we pride ourselves in having on all our boats, with features such as an al-fresco dining area for all 32 passengers, a library/video room. Additionally, the yacht has such amenities as a small hot pool & bar, sunning deck, outside social/observation under a canopied roof deck & bar, air renewal system, boutique and infirmary with a MD on board at all times.

The Evolution carries only 32 passengers on each Galapagos tour, she features 16 stylish cabins each has its own private facilities with hot water shower and plenty of space so you feel you are on a larger boat (2 suites on the boat deck, 8 cabins on the main deck, 6 cabins on the lower deck).

The friendly crew is ready to see to your every need. A special tour leader will oversee your yacht, and depending on the size of your group, you will have up to two naturalist guides. The Evolution also offers unique perspectives on your Galapagos tours, carrying clear acrylic sea kayaks for 'glass-bottom' glimpses beneath the calm seas, and 'snuba'* for longer, deeper explorations of underwater life. We dedicate the Evolution to the astute world-traveler whose voyage of discovery is boundless and never-ending!
