Galapagos Islands Luxury Motor Yacht - Evolution


The Evolution Yacht is another of those historical Galapagos ships that hark back to the "roaring '20s" and the age of the steam ship. Today, however, this motor yacht is one that sleeps 32 guests in comfort and style, having been renovated in 2017 to yield to the wants of today's expeditionary adventurers with their modern cruising needs. 

You already have a vision for your Galapagos bucket-list trip, filled with crystal-clear waters, exotic creatures, delicious Ecuadorian bites, and the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. Imagine all of that—without the crowds.

Your dream trip doesn’t have to be a distant scene any longer. The Evolution Yacht gets you up close and personal to the wildlife you’re seeking, while delivering an unparalleled onboard experience of spacious privacy and luxury. When you explore the Galapagos Islands on a safari-style yacht, it’s everything you hope it will be—but better, because our small-group approach makes Darwin’s paradise your own.
