A 64-metre motor yacht with a cruising speed of 11 knots.
Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.
The vessel has a crew of 30 and the ship's air-conditioned cabins come with double or twin beds and private en-suite bathrooms with showers. The public decks contain the living and dining areas, a library / video room for lectures and films, and a sun deck with a jacuzzi.
All meals are served buffet-style. In addition to the crew, the Eclipse has four on-board naturalists to answer passengers' questions on the ecology of the Galápagos and to accompany guests on shore excursions using the Eclipse's flotilla of hard-bottomed inflatable launches.
