The sailing sisters Coral I & Coral II are a perfect combo of elegant beauty and lavish style. The construction took place in Germany and Holland. Both the liveaboards have surpassed all the standards that are expected from a high caliber cruise ship. They offer ultimate trips to the Galapagos and the surrounding islands. The charming sisters usually travel together and are suitable for those who seek privacy along with comfort. Coral I & II are the ideal choice for the families who want to charter a vessel for a short trip of 4-5 days. The spacious cabins, large decks and plenty of communal space compliment well with the services offered by the stylish liveaboard.

Diving on the MY Coral 1 & 2 in Galapagos

MY Coral I & II

The 40 meters (approx. 131 feet) Coral I was built in 2004 and renovated with ultra-modern facilities in 2016, whereas the length of Coral II is 35 meters (approx. 113 feet). Coral II was built 2006 and was renovated with her elder sister in the same year. They are famous for providing a speedy cruise with 12 knots per hour, which means you have more time to explore the islands and less time to spend on traveling. Each day spent on these liveaboards is full of fun-filled activities, adventurous dives, and exploring the nature either under the deep blue waters of the Galapagos or while trekking on the surface. The onboard guides are well-trained and professional. They have deep knowledge about the exotic islands and the marine life.

The modern shape and functional mid-size make it an ideal choice for those who seek an intimate dive cruise vacation with close friends or families.

All the amenities are well-aligned so that the 36 guests are accommodated with every thick and thin. Whereas, Coral II is a combo of form and functions.
