M/Y San Jose was carefully designed for navigating the Galapagos archipelago, with the comfort of her guests in mind, though without excessive luxury. This innovative yacht has been built in 2003–2004 and is classified as Tourist Superior Class. It accommodates up to 16 passengers in 8 stretched and comfortable twin cabins on the quieter front half of the main and upper deck (as far as possible from the engine room). It is equipped with two powerful engines that give a cruising speed of 10 knots (ca. 18,5 km/h).
