A great value option for exploring the archipelago in a lovely small ship with excellent service and comfort

The Monserrat is a 28m motor yacht with a speed of 12 knots. The vessel has a capacity for 20 passengers in ten air-conditioned cabins - 6 on the upper deck and 4 on the lower deck all with en-suite bathrooms. Interiors are modern yet simple and bright. There are 11 crew members including two naturalist guides, one of the best ratios in the archipelago.

Facilities include a dining area, lounge/bar with TV for presentations and relaxation plus two sundecks and an outdoor shaded area where you can enjoy alfresco dinning or simply to relax and admire the views as you sail around the islands.
