A sleek, twin-hulled catamaran, that provides its guests with a steady and safe cruise. The design of the Elite allows for more space per guest on board, including integrated social areas that blend indoor and outdoor designs and experiences. All Suites onboard the Galapagos Elite luxury yacht are spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed: the perfect place to relax and recharge after a day spent exploring the islands. Each suite has grand windows for panoramic ocean views, a private outdoor balcony, as well as a natural light frosted glass wall restroom in each suite. All beds are convertible in two twin beds or one king-size bed.
Our professional cuisine specialists aboard the Galapagos Elite yacht prepare three delicious, nutritious meals per day: breakfast and mainly lunch served buffet-style, with a more elegant sit-down dinner served in the al fresco dining area on the partially covered sky deck. Elite’s interior passengers’ lounge features a 180-degree panoramic view salon on the main deck. Guests of all ages enjoy the ample, semi-covered sky deck, the al fresco dining area, and the cozy bar-salon while aboard our Galapagos Island private yacht charter.
Meals are always made from fresh ingredients, locally provided from farms on the islands whenever possible. Special dietary needs are never a problem and kids' meals are available.
The Elite, a private luxury catamaran in the Galapagos, has an enviable itinerary with visits to the best visitor sites the Galapagos islands and seas have to offer. Within the archipelago, we have long and short itineraries covering Western, Central and Eastern islands.
Needless to say, the Galapagos Elite luxury yacht features state-of-the-art navigation computers and safety equipment; safety and reliability are essential parts of any Galapagos luxury experience.

Meals are always made from fresh ingredients, locally provided from farms on the islands whenever possible. Special dietary needs are never a problem for our chefs, and kids’ meals are available. Your onboard chef prepares three delicious, nutritious meals per day: breakfast and frequently lunch will be served buffet-style, with a more elegant sit-down dinner served in the al fresco dining area on the sky deck, weather permitting.
We are particularly proud of the panoramic windows featured in each suite: unlike the heavy, round porthole windows of the older yachts, each suite on the Elite has grand windows offering panoramic views. Your window to the world of Galapagos is a floor to cielling wall of tempered glass, with a glass sliding door to get to your balcony. Each morning and afternoon will bring a different stunning Galapagos seascape view from your room!
