Max Passengers: 32
Ship Type: Motor Yacht

This charming expedition yacht is ample enough to provide spacious staterooms, along with various social areas - including inside and outside dining - yet small enough for guests to be able to experience nature in an up-close and personal manner. Accommodating 32 passengers in 18 cabins, this artful combination of factors results in a yacht which offers excellent service, accommodations and attention to detail, while causing minimal impact on the environment.
