Mary Anne Review
The Mary Anne is among our favorite sailboats in the Galapagos. She is larger than most sailing vessels and with only 16 guests among 12 cabins there is plenty of room on board. There are also great opportunities for single travelers to get their own room. Choose the Mary Anne if you are seeking a classic sailing experience in the Galapagos.

Cabins Aboard Mary Anne
Mary Anne can accommodate up to 16 passengers in 12 double, tastefully furnished cabins. As is true for most sailboats, cabins aboard the S/S Mary Anne are smaller and most have bunk beds. All cabins have private bathrooms with hot water, closets, porthole windows and all are designed with one double lower berth and a single upper berth. Two cabins (#9 and 10) are designed as double cabins with only a lower double bed and no upper berth.
