What sets this luxury yacht apart from its competitors is the staggeringly size of the cabins – over 340sq. ft. of your own space. At times, it is easy to forget you are on a boat! The best way to remind yourself that you are, is to step out onto the cabin’s equally roomy, private balcony and take in the stunning panoramic views of the Galapagos. With the twin-hull design of the catamaran providing excellent stability at sea, the ship maintains a peaceful equilibrium in the water. The award-winning Endemic, along with her sister ship The Elite, is purpose built specifically for sailing the Galapagos Islands and – in our opinion – has been the best way to do so since her maiden voyage in 2018.

Deck layout

The Endemic has 3 decks. The Main Deck has a large observation deck at the bow (front) along with a large briefing room equipped with comfy seats, a screen for presentations and a library area. Centrally located are 4 suites (cabins). Towards the stern is the dining area and lounge, with panoramic views on both sides. Outside is the access point to the ship’s two panga (dinghy) boats, along with a snack bar and drinking water station.

The Upper Deck contains 4 suites plus the single cabin. The 2 suites on each side can interconnect, if required. There is a sundeck on both the stern and bow. Finally, the Skydeck offers an ideal place to relax and enjoy the views. The Skydeck features a Whirlpool hot-tub, sun-loungers, outdoor bar and a restroom. This also doubles as an al fresco dining area for BBQs.


The Endemic has six different itineraries, offering 3-, 4-, 5- and 7-night expeditions. All itineraries start and finish with pick-up/drop-off from Baltra airport. These can be combined, to create all-encompassing Galapagos adventures!


The Endemic has eight ‘Golden Suite’ 32m2 cabins, with either King bed of twin bed formations available in all. There are two pairs of interconnecting cabins, ideal for families. All cabins have wall-to-wall glass doors opening to a private balcony. There is also a single cabin (14m2) that would be suitable for a solo traveller or a child. All cabins are equipped with air-conditioning, en-suite with shower, wardrobes & drawers, safe-deposit box, sofa, desk, dressing gowns and in-cabin speakers – to ensure you don’t miss any activities!

Features & inclusions

All land and water activities, led by the on-board experienced naturalist, are included. Snorkelling equipment, wetsuits and fins are also provided. The Endemic has paddleboards and kayaks available for use. The kayaks are transparent, allowing you to see the wildlife frolicking beneath you! All meals are included and served buffet-style; and snacks are provided after each activity. Water stations provide limitless drinking water for guests, who each get a drinking flask to keep. These water filtration stations have reduced plastic bottle usage by approx. 25,000 bottles per year.
