Galapagos cruise and tour aboard the Samba

This is a 14 passenger, 78-foot solid, steel-hulled motor yacht (with stabilizing sail) built in Holland. She is comfortable and well laid-out, offers good cabin and public-area accommodations and has all the basic features that characterize the yachts we market.Sturdy, stately and very comfortable, the motor-vessel SAMBA is a true Dutch European classic and best in her class. A great ocean vessel with a specially designed high bow, she provides safe crossings and boasts a special stabilizing sail.

Her main salon and aft dining facilities make her socially versatile while top-side settees and a flush and ample forward deck provide great getaways or extra space for group activities such as stargazing, whale watching or simply sunbathing. The SAMBA accommodates 14 guests.

Accommodations: Seven air-conditioned cabins with ensuite bathrooms. Ample dining-room/saloon, connected with outdoor dining facility with large tables, TV with video-system, sound-system, mini-library with books and videos and a small bar.

"We had a great trip. The crew and accommodations on the Samba were terrific and the Galapagos was our favorite part of our South American journey. The boat was clean and well designed.  The crew was terrific and attended to our needs. The food was great and we felt very safe in the Captain's hands. Our naturalist guide was extremely knowledgeable and brought a lot of education on wildlife and the history of the Galapagos Islands, he was great." - Kelly Ruebel, USA
