Petrel is a small, smart motor yacht catamaran offering intimate cruises in the Galapagos Islands

The new luxury motor yacht Petrel has only been cruising the Galápagos Islands since 2015 but is already wowing guests with its generous space, smart furnishings and fixtures, and stability (it’s a twin hull vessel).

The Petrel is a good choice for the visitor seeking high level comfort, excellent cuisine and top quality guiding in a small, intimate vessel. She only had two suites, six convertible staterooms for two passengers each and a single cabin. Each has a private balcony, private bathroom and panoramic windows. Décor is smart and business-like with plenty of nautical blue and white, while furnishings are lean and contemporary – there’s nothing fussy here, just pleasing modern lines.

You can relax in the spacious lounge but there are plenty of opportunities for active guests, with kayaks, snorkel and exercise equipment on board for your use.  With 10 crew and a bilingual naturalist guide of a maximum 16 guests, service is a top priority.
