18 passengers, 2 guides, 1 cruise director, 9 crew
Launching mid-2020: M/Y Conservation. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of this brand-new 18-passenger yacht. Giving honour to its name, upon arrival the M/Y Conservation will likely be the most sustainable vessel to cruise the islands, thanks to a new model of engine, which uses solar power technology and electric energy, as well as makes use of an eco-friendly propulsion system that will prevent bioaccumulation caused by gas pollutants. The propulsion system of the zodiacs is set to decrease gas emissions by 100 percent and be almost entirely silent, which means marine life won’t be disturbed.
Furthermore, no single-use plastics will be used on-board, amenities are natural and bio-degradable and the ship will even feature its own recycling facility.
The yacht will be launched in collaboration with the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galápagos National Park Directorate and a cabin will be donated to the Foundation at all times, which can be used by scientists for their important conservation studies. Guests on board are given the opportunity to speak with these passionate researchers and learn how they are committed to protecting this wonderful yet fragile ecosystem.
Whilst conservation and sustainability are top-priority, comfort and luxury will not be compromised. On the contrary! The luxury yacht will feature 10 cabins for a maximum of 18 passengers. Cabins will range from 20 square meters to the Master Suite which will be 35-40 square metres and offer a 180-degree view. The vessel will also offer one single suite, perfect for single travellers or groups with an uneven number of people. You will be able to relax in one of the two Jacuzzi’s or schedule a treatment in the on-board spa.
M/Y Conservation will sail 2 different 8-day itineraries to the most pristine corners of the Archipelago. More information coming soon and open to bookings shortly!Back to overview
