Operating since December 1999, this is one of the most comfortable yachts to cruise the Galapagos. Sagitta is a splendid 120-foot steel-hulled vessel of great sturdiness. Rebuilt for 16 guests and crew, she offers ten double air-conditioned cabins with double lower and single upper berths. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms with hot-water showers. This sailing ship boasts a homely salon/bar, a comfortable dining room with large picture windows, a separate conference room that doubles as the library / entertainment center, and an additional dining facility "al fresco". Easy-access, ample deck space with plenty of comfortable seating makes her truly a great vessel for Island cruising. Solid and stable, the Sagitta is a superb choice for those who are still finding their sea legs. Enjoy your cruise at a relaxing pace in comfort and casual luxury.
