This vessel was built in Guayaquil-Ecuador during the years 2003 and 2004. The San José is a very spacious yacht with 110 feet length and 25 feet wide.
Each of the eight double bedded cabins have private bathrooms, fully air conditioned and were build from port to starboard giving our guests incredible space, the dimensions are 5.80 m by 2.50 m (18.8 feet by 8 feet). All of the cabins also are exterior and have a great view of the ocean.
With a well thought out design the engine room is located below the living and dining room, in this way all the cabins are quiet giving our guests the possibility to rest well during all the nights they will spend on board our Yacht.
The San José also offers you lots of open space areas, such as, two sun green carpeted deck areas with sleeping comfortable chairs, beach tables and benches, where you can enjoy our navigations, the sun, the landscape of the islands, and with a little bit of luck dolphins or whales.
Our guides are among the top multilingual in the Galapagos Islands, trained by the Galapagos National Park Service and the Darwin Research Station. Our nine crew members are experienced, well trained and certified by the IMO (International Marine Organization).
Safety is very important for us, and for that reason this brand new Yacht has very sophisticated navigation equipment, which has surpassed international safety regulations. We have two Navigations Radars, 2 Sonar and GPS systems, all the emergency devices such as an EPIRB, Satellite signal device, emergency flares, 2 inflatable emergency rubber boats, life vests in each cabin, etc. During our daily excursions we always provide our passengers of two "zodiac" boats, each for ten persons, life jackets for adults and children.
The San José is equipped with two 340 H.P. Detroit diesel engines, two 60 KVA and TWO Perkins generators, which power the boat with a maximum speed of 10 Knots per hour.
