Stretching 48.5 meters in length, Passion is the largest charter yacht in all of the Galapagos Islands. Originally built as a private luxury yacht, Passion later underwent a complete refit – and is now a luxury motor yacht designed exclusively for extended adventures in the Galapagos Islands. Once named Bellisina, today, Passion offers a sense of relaxed refinement unlike any other yacht; likely due to the fact that, also unlike other yachts, it has never before been used for tourism.
The interior design of the yacht is equal parts timeless and sophisticated. Steeped in elegance, Passion still retains many of its original features, including rose-colored marble bathrooms and teak wood decks, two elements that are unique to Passion alone. Spread over four decks, Passion has a spacious interior filled with plenty of social areas, a panoramic sky lounge and wet bar, and a separate dining room. In total, Passion can accommodate up to 12 guests.
Outside, Passion is equally luxurious. Its spacious decks are outfitted with ample lounge chairs and fine teak decking; and the sundeck, specifically, is home to a large Jacuzzi. On Passion, the crew member-to-passenger ratio is 1:1, making the guest experience on this yacht far better than any other yacht currently in operation.
Passion can accommodate 12 guests in 6 staterooms.
The two suites ( Master and VIP) feature 2 en-suite bathrooms each as well as a private lounge area.
Four additional staterooms are fully air-conditioned and spacious, each with its own private bathroom.
