All of the Luxury Charter Group team have been fortunate enough to visit the Galapagos Islands. Radek Gendek most recently experienced the magic and majesty of the area on a charter onboard the customised, Italian-built explorer charter yacht, STELLA MARIS. At 124ft (38m) STELLA MARIS accommodates up to 14 guests in comfort, with luxurious amenities, acclaimed onboard Chef and a Captain with 30 years’ experience cruising this fascinating region.
Considered the last environmental haven on Earth, the Galapagos is a chain of islands located approximately 600 miles from the western coast of Ecuador, teeming with unique species native to this fascinating region. This is your chance to dive with Sea Lions, Galapagos Penguins, an a rainbow of tropical fish, and even the famous Galapagos Sharks.
The proven luxury charter yacht in the Galapagos, STELLA MARIS is a 124ft (38m) charter yacht specially designed to be as ecologically-friendly as possible so as not to disrupt the delicate balance of flora and fauna that make this region so special.
For guests’ ultimate comfort and viewing pleasure, STELLA MARIS boasts a spacious sun deck with jacuzzi and sun loungers, the ideal vantage point for spotting marinelife and taking the breathtaking panoramas.
The bridge deck provides a large aft space for dining, with bar and lounge section for socialising.
Light and bright inside with a neutral palette of beige, brown and metallic accents, private crewed motor yacht STELLA MARIS offers the best of both worlds: spacious, practical interiors perfect for families, yet elegant and intimate for couples or friends. The saloon features an expansive lounge area, with large windows so you don’t miss a thing and high-tech AV system for entertainment and watching the day’s Go-Pro footage.
Then there’s a separate formal dining space that features chandelier lighting and intriguing Ecuadorian artwork.
On the bridge deck, the master suite with his and hers ensuite and ample storage has private access to an outdoor lounge. The décor continues the theme of intermingled textures and materials, a pleasant blend that conveys the culture of STELLA MARIS’ South American roots.
On the main deck there are two VIP cabins with queen beds and ensuites, and on the lower deck, three twin cabins, each with ensuite and one double cabin with queen bed and ensuite.

The food was excellent too, catering for all our needs. All the crew were very friendly and instantly made us feel at home. Our best family holiday ever!”; “Thank you for creating a warm, comfortable, and beautiful environment in which our family experienced an unforgettable holiday together. We are grateful to begin the new year in such a special place and slow down enough to appreciate the natural majesty these islands possess.”
