Built in 2007, the Yolita II was designed specifically for the Galapagos and offers a comfortable 16 passenger motor yacht experience. All eight cabins offer simple but comfortable accommodations with full size windows, twin or double bed layouts, ample storage space and private bathrooms with hot water.

The main deck contains the indoor dining room as well as a comfortable lounge area perfect for reading a book. On the upper deck and sun deck guests can enjoy the Galapagos sun while keeping an eye out for passing wildlife.

Yolita II offers a variety of excursions including trekking, swimming, snorkeling and dinghy rides giving visitors a diverse set of vantage points of the islands.

Cabins

The cabins on the Yolita are on the small side compared to many of the ships we offer but all eight cabins feature two twin beds or one matrimonial bed, modern fitted private bathroom, air conditioning and full size windows.

Main deck cabins (x4)

The main deck cabins provide a bit more stability as they are closer to water level and can be arranged as either a twin or double room.

Upper deck cabins (x4)

The upper deck cabins have a slightly better vantage point as they are higher off the water. They can be arranged as either a twin or double room as well.
