ex San Cristóbal (Galapagos yachts and cruises, Galapagos)


A 142’ luxury motor yacht custom designed for Galapagos cruising in 2016 and carrying up to 20 passengers. She has modern interiors and large picture windows, a sun deck with Jacuzzi, and plenty of outdoor space. Cruising at 12 knots she is built for fuel efficiency and stability. There is an open bar policy.




20 passengers


Two experienced naturalist guides lead daily island, panga and snorkelling excursions. Each boat also carries kayaks that can be used at certain sites permitted by the national park (and stand up paddle boards pending approval). Wetsuits and snorkelling equipment are provided.


Ten air-conditioned en-suite deluxe double staterooms with large panoramic windows. All guest cabins are on the main (Beagle) deck. Two cabins are interconnecting and two can be made into triple accommodation (using a pull-down berth).

Our comments

The yacht offers regular family departures.

Client comments and reviews

Open QuoteThe Origin is a very comfortable boat and I would recommend it to anyone. We were especially lucky with the other guests who were all very pleasant and we all settled in together within the first day. Guides on the boat were exceptional and very experienced.Close Quote - PB, May 2017
