Ecoventura Launching New Small Ship for Galapagos

Ecoventura is set to launch its newest Premium Class vessel, the MV Origin, in January 2016 for Galapagos Islands service.

The 20-passenger mega-yacht will feature 10 deluxe staterooms distributed on one floor, and a variety of onboard amenities designed especially for the discerning traveler, according to a statement. 

These will include a concierge, locally inspired gourmet cuisine, and recreational equipment such as a Jacuzzi and fitness center.

MV Origin will also feature indoor and outdoor social and observation areas. The vessel will alternate between two seven-night itineraries, including twice daily excursions with optional snorkel and kayak tours led by two onboard certified naturalists, who also join the captain in nightly briefings for guests.

Excursions are organized in small groups of no more than 10 passengers per naturalist to ensure a personalized and intimate experience through their tour of the Galapagos National Park. 

“MV Origin marks the expansion of our fleet into a higher luxury category,” said Santiago Dunn, Executive President of Ecoventura. “The yacht’s streamlined, spacious design and lavish amenities will allow for an even more intimate and superior guest experience.”
