M/Y Grace's stellar past includes ownership by millionaire tycoons like Sir George Tilley and Aristotle Onassis, a brief stint in the British navy and the vacation home of guests recognized worldwide, including Winston Churchill. Built by Camper & Nicholson, this yacht has traversed the waters of this world under many names, but has been rechristened with a name that takes her back into her history, to the very best of her times. Named after her late owner, Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco, the name is a representation of her elegance, beauty and prestige.
Grace is the ideal yacht for the traveler who seeks a true explorer experience, complemented with excellent service, superb accommodations and excellent dining. All who travel aboard this yacht will be part of a unique mission: to bring to life the natural living legacy of the islands through an experience unlike any other in Galapagos.
Grace is outfitted to allow for a variety of cruise styles: for individual passengers, private charters, family departures, and active departures that include more kayaking, snorkeling and hiking.
Grace features a main salon equipped with a bar, TV/Video system and stereo system, Jacuzzi, and sea kayaks. Snorkeling gear and wetsuits are available for use (currently at no charge.) SCUBA diving is available on an "occasional" basis on certain dates.
For meals, served buffet style, passengers can choose to eat inside, in the interior dining room or outside at the al-fresco dining area. Meals are wholesome with a variety of menus, with tropical exotic fruits always available.
The sundeck has a bar and plenty of space. Guests can also relax in the front of the boat where the jacuzzi and sun chairs are located.
