16Ship Type: Motor YachtOperated by: Golden Galapagos
Starting operations in July 2018. This luxury catamaran has a capacity of 16 passengers, eleven crew members, and a naturalist guide, offering a service ratio of almost one to one.
Being the first catamaran of a new generation of catamarans, the Endemic gathers elegant exteriors, spacious areas for high-end accommodation, social, and open areas. Navigation between the islands is fast and seamless due to Endemic’s design which delivers transverse stability when cruising around the archipelago.
On board the Endemic, the eight Golden Panoramic Suites are airy and comfortable; four of them are located on the main deck and the rest of the upper deck. Each suite has a private balcony; all suites have personalized air conditioning control and panoramic views of the islands due to its wall to wall glass doors instead of walls toward the outside. A small social area, closet/drawer, desk, and sofa-bed are part of each suite as well. Matrimonial king-size or two single twin beds are available in each suite for flexible accommodation. Private bathroom, hot and cold water and amenities.
Single Occupancy: The Endemic features a single cabin with private balcony, perfect complement for small groups and families. No single supplement will be applied.
On the Main Deck, the Endemic in the front features a briefing area for briefings, lectures, and it is also the point of information for Galapagos travel with videos, books, and personalized assistance. The interior passenger's lounge and dining area offer also a panoramic view of the islands during navigation and excursion while enjoying the exquisite cuisine. Two platforms allow passengers on and off the catamaran, offering super easy access to the yacht.
Passengers access the Upper Deck through interior steps. There are four suites, a sun terrace and a secluded social area for relaxation and wildlife observation. Passengers can also reach the upper levels of the Endemic through exterior steps. On the Sky Deck, the Endemic features al fresco dining, bar, exterior passengers lounge, BBQ station, Jacuzzi, sun chair and seating area.
