Petrel Luxury Motor Catamaran

Launched in 2015 and renovated in September 2017, the Petrel is one of the newest and most advanced vessels in the Galapagos.

This luxury motor catamaran combines speed—ten knots—and steadiness (catamarans tend to be more stable than monohull vessels).

The Petrel is 115 feet long, with a beam of 41 feet.
