Alta is one of the most beautiful yachts in the Galapagos, and suits those seeking a certain style and the special charm of a sailing ship.
She is fitted with 8 tastefully decorated cabins that accommodate up to 16 passengers. Each cabin has ample hanging locker and drawer space as well as private facilities with fresh, hot and cold water showers.
The main salon is inviting and comfortable, with a curving banquet and coffee table stand opposite a cabinet holding the TV/Video system. It is here you will meet your naturalist guide for daily briefings. For meals, there are two alternatives: the interior the dining salon or al fresco on the foredeck.
Alta offers several spots for relaxing or sunning, including a sundeck with lounge chairs just forward of the bridge, and another with cushions on the bow of the yacht. When conditions are appropriate, the sails are hoisted and Alta takes on her full character.
The romance of the Alta comes from being a single hulled sailing vessel. The arrangement of her cabins makes the most of the available space, and provides an authentic sailing experience in reasonable comfort.
Even with all the amenities, individual cabin space aboard a sailing vessel can feel limited. If you require something more spacious we recommend taking a look at the larger cabins and suites on our other yachts so we can best meet your needs.
