Originally crafted by Camper and Nicholsons, this 147-foot vessel was gifted to the American actress and Prince Rainier III by Aristotle Onassis for their 1956 wedding. During their honeymoon, the newlyweds explored the shores of Corsica and Sardinia before parting ways with the yacht in 1958. In 2007, it was christened as "Grace." While the yacht had seen renovations prior, this recent overhaul marks a significant transformation.

Enrique Concha & Co spearheaded the renovation efforts, revitalizing the eight en suite staterooms, the existing bar, and the kitchen. The updated interior boasts a blend of contemporary aesthetics and inviting warmth, with wood accents complementing modern furnishings. Furthermore, cutting-edge technological features have been integrated, including mood-adjusting lighting and additional USB ports and plugs for convenience.

The Chilean design firm also introduced a new coffee lounge for those in need of a caffeine boost, along with a boutique featuring clothing handpicked by fashion experts. Furthermore, Grace's menu has been completely revamped to elevate the culinary experience to new heights.

Outside, the newly expanded deck provides guests with panoramic views of the surrounding wildlife, including dolphins, whales, manta rays, and sea lions. There's even the chance to catch sight of rare avian species such as the renowned blue-footed boobies and short-eared owls native to the Galápagos.

In addition to aesthetic enhancements, Grace's propulsion system has undergone a significant upgrade. With new engines, generators, stabilizers, and propellers, the yacht now operates with increased smoothness, reduced noise, and enhanced efficiency. It boasts a maximum speed of 15 knots, although, in such a breathtaking setting, there's hardly a need to rush.

Grace accommodates up to 18 guests and is exclusively stationed in the Galápagos. She presents three distinct itineraries inspired by the explorations of Darwin: two eight-day voyages and one 15-day expedition. Pricing begins at $8,500 per person, and reservations can be made conveniently online. Additionally, Grace is available for private charter, albeit at a premium, with rates reaching six figures for a week. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
