M/Y Grace - Luxury Yacht

M/Y Grace's stellar past includes ownership by millionaire tycoons like Sir George Tilley and Aristotle Onassis, a brief stint in the British navy and the vacation home of guests recognized worldwide, including Winston Churchill.

This Camper & Nicholson yacht has traversed the waters of this world under many names, (previously named Zein) but has been rechristened with a name that takes her back into her history; to the very best of her times. Named after her late owner, Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco, the name is a representation of her elegance, beauty and prestige. Grace is the ideal yacht for the traveler who seeks a true explorer experience, complemented with excellent service, superb accommodations and excellent dining. All who travel aboard this yacht will be part of a unique mission: to bring to life the natural living legacy of the islands through an experience unlike any other in Galapagos.
