Identical Twin Galapagos Catamarans M/C Archipell I & M/C Archipell II
Identical Twin Galapagos Catamarans M/C Archipell I & M/C Archipell II

The M/C Archipell I and II are identical twin sister catamarans offering hi-spec accommodation and a wealth of indoor and outdoor space, making them a great choice for your Galapagos cruise.

The M/C Archipell I and II were built in 2003 and 2005 respectively. Identical in design, they both have eight large cabins, two configured as doubles and the others with twin beds. All have picture windows, lots of storage space, air-conditioning and ensuite bathrooms.

All eight cabins are on the main deck and are the same size, with only the bed configurations different (matronial, double or twin), all with lower beds (i.e., no bunk beds). All have windows with sea views, rather than port holes, clothes closet, safe and bathroom with hot and cold running water.

When not out exploring the islands, you’ll be able to relax, taking your pick of the communal areas. Sit back and leaf through a book in the lounge, or enjoy a drink at the bar as you chat with other travellers. The sun deck is just the place to unwind, doze in the heat and recharge your batteries before your next excursion.
