Romantic luxury Galápagos sailboat, evoking an age of high seas adventure.

This must surely be one of the most romantic and atmospheric ships sailing the waters around the Galápagos Islands. A square-rigged barquentine, slim and fast, she evokes a swashbuckling, seafaring era.

Mary Anne has 12 cabins, giving a maximum of just 24 passengers. Freshly decorated, they each have a laminate floor and white/aquamarine décor, creating a contemporary feel within the traditional framework.

Above the cabin deck, the main deck houses a wood-panelled dining room, galley, library and TV with video equipment. The sun deck has a covered seating area and al fresco dining areas.

Bartolome, Galápagos

What our clients say

  • "Exceptionally good food, friendly crew, excellent and knowledgeable guide.”

  • “The Galápagos cruise on the MaryAnne was quite exceptional and can't say enough how special it was. The leader, Carolina, had wonderful knowledge and authority, so getting up at 5.30am was no hardship! We were eating out of the palm of her hand, as she was so professional. The food was very good, too, and the crew so kind. Would strongly recommend this to any future client. I absolutely loved the snorkelling, walks on the islands, and sailing at siesta time.”

  • The guide, Fabian, was superb.  Likewise the crew were great, too. The whole of the boat trip. This part I cannot speak too highly about.

  • "We were concerned that this trip might not match our previous visit but it turned out as good if not better. Boat was bigger and more comfortable (no sea sickness), crew were excellent - efficient and friendly, and the itinerary was exactly as described and a very good, balanced view of the islands. Both (of 2) guides were excellent but lead guide (turned out to be head of the Galápagos Guides Association (500 guides) had exceptional knowledge and long experience of the islands.”

  • "I couldn't fault this in any way and strongly recommend to any future traveller. The guide Carolina was full of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble; the accommodation was comfortable and the food tip top. I loved every minute of it.”
