PASSION

Welcome aboard the Passion Galapagos Cruise

Originally built as a private luxury yacht, the M/Y Passion has been completely refurbished while still retaining many of its original elegant features such as its rose-colored marble bathrooms and teak wood decks that make this vessel one of a kind.

The M/Y Passion, originally named Bellisima (“beautiful” in Italian), offers a sense of relaxed refinement and exclusivity, as the boat was never before used for tourism.

Ideal for families and private charters, the M/Y Passion is 159 feet (48.5 meters) in length and is spread over four decks. The yacht boasts an exceptional amount of space for only 14 passengers. This exclusive vessel has ample social areas, a panoramic sky lounge and bar, separate dining room, wonderfully spacious sun decks for al fresco dining and a secluded sun deck with Jacuzzi for relaxation and privacy.
