Reduced charter rate on Stella Maris in the Galapagos

Reduced charter rate on Stella Maris in the Galapagos

The 38 metre (124’) luxury charter yacht Stella Maris is offering a reduced charter rate, down from $150,000 per week to $128,500 per week in the Galapagos Islands until the end of 2015.

The only privately owned luxury yacht available for charter in the Galapagos islands all year round, Stella Maris was delivered by the Italian Picchiotti yard in 1987 and has been constantly upgraded since. A sensitive refit in 2014 saw her further adapted to fit in with the fragile eco systems of the islands.

This luxury yacht for charter sleeps up to 12 guests in six luxurious cabins, including a sumptuously appointed master suite on the upper deck with its own outdoor terrace, and all cabins have full en suite facilities. Complementing the yacht’s warm, contemporary interiors are a variety of amenities and outdoor spaces, perfect for socializing, entertaining, and dining al fresco.

Water toys include two Novurania tenders, two kayaks, snorkeling gear and diving equipment. Notably, noisy jet skis and Waverunners are excluded, in the interests of protecting the tranquility of the islands and also to avoid any injuries to divers.

Diving in these magical waters is a sensational experience and the Galapagos achieved an accolade from Travel + Leisure magazine as the world’s best diving area in 2015. Guests can expect encounters with sharks, sea lions, penguins, sea turtles, salt-water iguanas, giant tortoises, nesting albatrosses and blue-footed boobies, to name a few.

Visitors will also be aware that they are treading in the footsteps of history, for it was on a scientific visit to the Galapagos that British naturalist Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution. In 1859 he published his theories in the book ‘On the Origin of the Species’ which created huge controversy in the religious and scientific communities of the time. However, it has long been recognized as the most logical and elegant description of how the globe’s natural world evolved over millennia.

Stella Maris is available for charter through Worth Avenue Yachts.
