Back in 1966 the M/Y Samba, a luxury yacht was built by the Dutch for their private voyages; and now after four decades, the same sailboat has been revamped, reflecting a modern outlook, to serve as one of the tour yachts that will allow you to cruise Galapagos in Island flare. The yacht whirls against the serene Pacific waters, circumnavigating most of the Galapagos archipel, following one of the itineraries tailored according to the Park Authority voyage requirements. With lavishly decorated interiors, a spacious sundeck, and choicest cruising routes, the M/Y Samba promises a mystique voyage around the archipelago.
The yacht / sailboat is 78 feet long, and its beam measures 18 feet. Its average speed is about 8.5 knots. The crew includes 5+ members along with a guide. This Galapagos sailboat can accommodate no more than 13 passengers and hence is ideal for a small group. The value oriented pricing makes the Samba a good choise for private charters.
