Discreet, classy, and stealth, the Safari Voyager is comfortable in warm water regions and built to handle humidity and heat. Tropical adventure, wilderness access, and the natural landscape are always at the forefront. A seamless extension of the places she sails, the boat and her mostly local crew exude pura vida (pure life). Handcrafted artwork throughout the vessel and in each cabin pays homage to the cultures of Latin America. Casual in nature, the Safari Voyager is a bit of a show-off, too—take in 270-degrees of view from the top deck or window-to-window in the air-conditioned lounge. Onboard Features: EZ Dock kayak launch platform; bow-mounted underwater camera; kayaks, paddleboards, inflatable skiffs, hiking poles, snorkel gear; fitness equipment and yoga mats; DVD and book library.
