Parranda is an elegant, spacious motor yacht. Fitted with stabilizers to make cruising more comfortable, Parranda is fast, allowing for less travel time between islands. It is great for travelers who want to experience the Galapagos in comfort and refinement.  The ship was built in the USA.

The salon is ample and elegantly decorated, with large windows that allow the guests to have a scenic view of the outside. Equipped with TV, VCR and Stereo, this is the place to enjoy our video and CD collection. Aft of the salon is the dining area, which is very pleasant because it is open towards the stern of the yacht. It also has a roof and windows on its sides, so that guests receive fresh air but are protected from the sun.

The galley is fully fitted out to enable the chef to maintain the highest standards in cuisine and its presentation. The outside deck is extraordinary. Long and spacious, it has comfortable lounge chairs to read, sleep or relax, and is entirely covered by a canopy to offer protection from the sun.

Parranda is for travelers who want to experience the Galapagos in luxury and refinement.
