M/S Samba Galapagos Yacht Description:

This 78-foot solid, steel-hulled motor yacht (with stabilizing sail) was built in Holland. She is comfortable and well laid out, offering good cabin and public-area accommodations and has all the basic features that characterize the yachts we market. An ample dining-room/salon connects to an outdoor dining facility with large tables, TV with video-system, sound-system, mini-library with books and videos and a small bar. You will enjoy comfort, space and stability on board the Samba. Her ample deck space is perfect for dolphin and whale watching or just breathing in the pure air of Galapagos, and cozy outside seating will surely tempt you to dine under the stars. One of just 14 passengers, you will be pampered by Samba’s friendly, professional crew who are there to make your Galapagos visit the experience of a lifetime. Samba meets stringent environmental and socially responsible business standards. By sailing on Samba you are helping protect the magic of these enchanted islands.
