The 142 ft MV Origin made her debut on February 28th 2016 and is among the newest, most environmentally friendly and arguably most comfortable deluxe mega-yacht operating in the Galapagos archipelago at this present time. Despite its luxurious aspect, the MV Origin represents an ideal marriage between technology and sustainability; its unique design reducing fossil fuel consumption by over 30% and yet still enabling it to travel 30% faster than its contemporaries.
Rating as a mid-size vessel - ideal for poor sailors! - it features 10 tastefully appointed deluxe staterooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and stylish contemporary décor. All are equipped with the latest technology - climate controls, docking stations, satellite TV and radio – while 2 triple cabins and 2 with interconnecting doors make it ideal for families. All cabins lie on the same Beagle Deck and are complimented with oversize windows to drink in the light and wonderful views.
On board, you can enjoy locally inspired gourmet style menus either in the dining room or al fresco on deck depending on the weather.
The MV Origin boasts an abundance of space inside and out. Relax at the bar, in the library or one of the lounges or unwind in the Jacuzzi or out on the sun-deck as the islands drift by. Or for the energetic, why not head to the gym and fitness centre to work off the wonderful food?
The MV Origin offers a combination of 6 and 7 night cruises to explore the breathtaking flora and fauna of the Galapagos. Daily excursions are led by the 2 on-board naturalist guides and there are regular opportunities to swim, snorkel and take advantage of the on-board kayaks.
The MV Origin has raised the bar for Galapagos cruises and would suit both couples and families alike. Recommended!
