Mary Anne is an elegant, 3-masted tall ship, cutting a fine figure in the waters of the Galapagos Islands. With her friendly crew she is an excellent choice for your cruise.
Mary Anne is the obvious choice for lovers of sailing ships. With her tall masts and vast sails, which are used whenever possible, she is a wonderful and distinctive sight. She was designed to carry up to 28 passengers but the current maximum is 16, so there is more than enough space for everyone on board. Cabins are air conditioned and all have en-suite bathrooms and portholes.
You can relax in the wood-panelled lounge and enjoy meals in the dining room. There is a large deck area with plenty of cushioned seating where you can enjoy the views as you talk the other passengers and look forward to the next shore excursion. She carries kayaks and snorkelling equipment, while keen and would-be sailors can help with tasks around the boat.
