The S/Y (Sailing Yacht) Sagitta is a beautifully appointed, intelligently distributed 120-foot steel-hulled three-mast sailing ship that glides across Galapagos waters in full flare. The Sagitta, built in Sweden in 1961 and entirely remodeled in the Galapagos Islands, stands as a classy, versatile and stealthy sailing ship designed with the environment in mind.
The S/Y Sagitta’s extra-beamy build makes her a perfect choice as she cruises the Galapagos with hardly a roll. She is stable and safe and tours the four corners of the Galapagos Islands with personality and elegance. The Sagitta features ten air-conditioned cabins each with a double lower berth and single upper berth, private bathroom and hot water. She carries a total of 16 passengers and crew of 8 on Galapagos Cruises. The Sagitta sailing-ship boasts a homely salon/bar, a comfortable dining room, an isolated conference room with library/entertainment center, and an additional dining facility "al fresco." Flush and ample deck space makes her truly a great vessel for Island cruising. Complementary snorkel gear and kayaks are available to enhance your off board and water enjoyment.
