Passion is a spacious yet intimate yacht offering no-holds-barred luxury for just 14 guests.

The MV Passion was designed and built as a luxury private yacht, and it shows.  At over 48m long and with four decks it offers masses of space for its 14 guests to lounge in, possibly more per person than any other yacht cruising in the Galápagos.

The décor and furnishings are, for an expeditionary yacht, relatively sumptuous.  Each of the six staterooms  is individually decorated, with large windows allowing light to flood in, and wide views out across the ocean. There’s plenty of storage space and marble-effect bathroom with bath-tub (That’s certainly not standard on Galapagós yachts!). If you’d like even more personal space, the VIP and Master suites have separate private saloons.

When you want to be sociable, you can relax in the panoramic sky bar or take to a lounger  on either of two sun decks, one of which has a Jacuzzi.  Guests enjoy gourmet meals together at one table either in the interior restaurant or al fresco.

It’s not just about the facilities though: with a staff to guest ratio of not much less than 1:1 you are assured of impeccable first class service.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: Probably a sea lion playing underneath me and showing off whilst I was snorkelling.  Beautiful.

  • Most Memorable Moment?: The obvious answer is the whole thing!  If I had to choose, I'd say the experience of arriving at the top of the Prince Phillip Steps on Genovesa to be confronted by a sea of roosting and nesting seabirds completely unfazed by our presence. Of course I'd read about it in advance but nothing really prepares you for experiencing it for yourself.  Another key moment was going snorkelling for the first time at the age of 70 and immediately having underwater encounters with a sea lion and a green sea turtle. My prescience in investing in a GoPro camera ahead of the trip paid huge dividends in terms of lasting memories.
