Stella Maris

The Stella Maris is a 38-meter, charter-only luxury yacht specially designed to explore the Galapagos Islands sustainably and ecologically, aiding in keeping the delicate balance of the islands in pristine condition. The Italian Yacht builder, Picchiotti built the stylish and accommodating yacht. The Stella Maris was once known as the M/Y Talon and M/Y Alta. After a significant refurbishment, the ship is now ready once more.

Available as only a charter, the Stella Maris has 7 suites in total. The Master Suite, better known as the Crown Jewel, has spectacular views of the surrounding Galapagos, and in addition, there are two VIP suites, four other suites on the lower deck, and another suite on the front main deck.

In addition to the lavish suites, the Stella Maris offers its passengers an Al Fresco dining area, a Jacuzzi on a spacious sundeck, a bar, and many more outdoor deck spaces to enjoy the refreshing elements of the surrounding Galapagos Islands.

Spaces Aboard The Stella Maris

  • Main Deck

    As these young islands were cooling off some two million years later, certain species gradually began to arrive to the archipelago. It is speculated that these newcomers arrived in the Galapagos on large rafts of vegetation that broke off from the shores of Central and South America. Upon arriving in the archipelago, these species had to rapidly adapt to a radically new environment.
