ANGELITO was the nickname of the grandfather Angel, who in 1960 helped his two grandsons Leonardo and Hugo Andrade to build their first fishing boat. This boat enabled the Galapagos born brothers to earn a living and support their families.
As pioneers in the Galapagos, they gave up fishing and converted their boat to be able to tour visitors. By leaving fishing, they took the important first step to actively promoting the protection and conservation of the Galapagos Islands.
After more than a decade of working in tourism, the brothers used their experience that they learned from that first small boat to build a new Yacht, the ANGELITO I., which was launched in 1992.
Evolution goes on! The ANGELITO I. was totally refurbished in the summer of 2013. The high quality of craftsmanship was maintained while the amount of space and comfort level was increased.
The 8 double cabins are now on the main deck and include large picture windows, private bathrooms, individual air conditioning and the option to have twin beds or a double bed.
With 2 new engines, 2 new generators and all new electric and electronic installations, the safety, which is our first priority, is guaranteed.
