ex San Cristóbal (Galapagos yachts and cruises, Galapagos)


A 142 foot luxury motor yacht custom-designed in 2016 for Galapagos cruising, and built for fuel efficiency and stability. She sleeps up to 20 passengers and has modern interiors, large picture windows, a sun deck with Jacuzzi, and plenty of outdoor space. Cruises at 12 knots. 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.


10 air-conditioned, ensuite deluxe double staterooms with large panoramic windows. All guest cabins are on the main (Beagle) deck. 2 cabins are interconnecting and 2 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)
