Amazing Superyachts Turn Heads

This protected natural area may not get traffic like the Med, but it is on every yacht owner’s bucket list of beautiful places to visit. The Galapagos continue to attract some of the world’s most identifiable superyachts.

This volcanic island chain off the coast of Ecuador has remained practically untouched by the rest of the world. Thanks to the work by the Galapagos National Park and Marine Reserve, their natural beauty has been carefully conserved. The small land masses have protected a spectacular variety of endemic plant and wildlife species for centuries.

Find out which superyachts have been spotted around the archipelago.
