Boat description

The M/Y Passion was previously privately owned and has undergone a complete refit while still maintaining most of her original fittings. At 159 feet long and 28 feet wide she is the largest motor yachts in the Galapagos - yet only carries 14 guests with a ratio of 1 staff member per guest. One of the joys of sailing on the Passion is al fresco dining on the teak sun deck.

Unusually, as well as a 3 and 4 night short cruise, the M/Y Passion offers a choice of longer 8 night itineraries, ideal for those with a real intent in seeing as much of these special islands as possible.

Other public facilities include a panoramic sky lounge, bar, elegant dining room and jacuzzi.

All Staterooms are air conditioned with stunning private marble bathrooms. The VIP and master bedrooms have two bathrooms each. Four staterooms have a bathtub.

Ideal for families and private charters 

The vessel is a super choice for family groups. Many families opt to charter the whole ship where Veloso Tours works with the owners to ensure all your family requirements are exceeded.
