Boat Description

The first class Letty motor yacht is custom-designed for cruising the Galapagos islands and operating 7-night itineraries enabling a more extensive exploration than a shorter cruise. Built in 1991 and refurbished annually, the Letty accommodates no more than 20 guests since the number of guests on each cruise will vary from week to week. The Letty has a compact, functional layout as shown by the deck plan, with three decks with polished teak interiors trimmed with shiny brass fittings.

There's a dining room, well-stocked bar and conference area with a flat screen TV, library and panoramic picture windows. Or you can relax in a lounge chair on the sun deck, enjoying sea breezes and a sky full of stars. Guests have use of snorkel equipment, wet suits, sea kayaks and paddle boards. In the evening, guests are enthralled by enrichment lectures and briefings on the adventures ahead the following day.

Accommodation include ten double outside-facing cabins with a window or porthole view, one double bed or two twin lower beds, fully air-conditioned with private bathroom (hot and cold water showers), bio-degradable soap/shampoo dispensers, hair dryer, closet, drawers, intercom and separate climate controls for your comfort.
