Galapagos Tip Top II Yachts

Our First Class Yacht Tip Top II was designed and constructed to offer the highest level of security and comfort to our guests. The Tip Top II is a First Class Steel-hulled Motor Yacht, built to impeccably high standard in Guayaquil/Ecuador in 1983 and completely rebuilt in 1986, 1998 and 2006. The Tip Top II is specially designed and built to accommodate 16 guests in comfortable cabins. With 90 feet of length, 22 feet of beam and a 5 feet Draft, the Tip Top II is a very comfortable, traditional and full of history yacht in the Galapagos Islands.

Our 16 guests are accommodated in 9 cabins, each with private bathroom. The six cabins in the Lower Deck have two single lower berths.

 In the Upper Deck we have 2 cabins with two single lower berths and one cabin with one double lower berth.

 Cabins, Bar, dining room and lounge are fully carpeted for your comfort. A beautiful teak floored sun deck creates a delightful place for resting and relaxing on board.
