Historic Wooden Boat - MV CATALYST

Catalyst

The Catalyst Cruise Experience

After more than 40 years offering small ship exploration cruises, I continue to discover wonderful treasures that I know people who want authentic experiences will appreciate and enjoy. In this regard, I am very pleased and honored to introduce you to Bill and Shannon Bailey, who have brought their combined love of each other, wilderness travel, and historic wooden boats together to create an unforgettable small ship cruise experience aboard the immaculately restored, 80-year old M/V Catalyst.

Ship details

Our warm interior, with it’s decades old varnished wood paneling, heavy beamed ceilings and glowing mahogany trim and furniture takes us back to a time when craftsmanship was the rule rather than the exception. The slow pulse of our original 1932 Washington Diesel engine, the only one like it in the world, makes Catalyst a living creature, with a strong iron heart.

We use large battery banks that allow us to go for 12 hours without starting an engine to disrupt the quiet solitude that is at the core of a Pacific Catalyst trip. Why invest in a trip that feeds only a few of your senses? Why not spend what may be your one trip to Alaska being able to fully embrace; not just the sights that every guest on every big cruise ship will see, but also the cliff rimmed coves, the stunningly silent and calm anchorages where the only sounds are nesting Guillemots, or the explosive breaths of passing Humpback whales? Why not travel on a vessel that will stop for hours, engines off, drifting with an inquisitive Humpback who is intent on making eye contact with us? Instead of going off your diet for your vacation, why not find out how amazingly delicious healthy food can be?

Luxury Yacht - ALASKAN STORY

ALASKAN STORY

ABOUT THE “ALASKAN STORY”

The 90 foot plus yacht,  Alaskan  Story, is large and fast with spacious, comfortable common areas for sight-seeing, reading, visiting,  listening  to music, viewing videos, or just relaxing. The owners, with a combined 50 years’ experience chartering in Alaska, designed it for intimate Alaska Inside Passage cruising.

She has an all-new teak interior. All appliances as well as all marine machinery have recently been replaced. She has a large enclosed upper deck wheelhouse. The galley, saloon, dining area and day head are all on the main level. Two aft staterooms have walk-around queen beds and the forward two staterooms have two twins. There is a TV lounge forward.

Of course, all staterooms have a private en suite bathroom. The yacht has a water maker capable of producing over 1200 gallons a day. The Alaskan Story provides the comfort and luxury of the finest of homes.

The  Alaskan Story  carries a 17-foot Boston Whaler and a smaller inflatable, as well as two double kayaks to allow getting ashore in remote areas, fishing, crabbing, and exploring.

Alaskan Fishing on the Alaskan Story

 One of the great thrills we offer our guests is the opportunity to catch a mighty king salmon or a gigantic halibut from the cockpit of the Alaskan Story. On our yacht, you can fish from our Boston Whaler outfitted with down-riggers, radio, fish finder and new Honda 4-cycle outboard. Or, if you prefer, you can fish without ever leaving the comfort and convenience of your yacht. You can sit on a covered rear deck and troll for salmon with the crew who, while catering to all your needs, net and clean your catch for you. We only serve seafood that you, your friends or one of the crew caught – probably hours earlier. We will also drop crab pots and savor fresh caught Dungeness crab.

 Cuisine

Everything served will be the freshest available. Of course, the food is exquisite; truly a highlight of every day – comparable to the finest of restaurants.

Total Comfort

The Alaskan Story is a safe, fast, tastefully decorated and a very comfortable yacht. She has a Naiad Stabilization system. The Alaskan Story has large interior spaces with great visibility and covered decks for watching wildlife if the weather turns bad. The staterooms are big and bright with individual temperature controls for heat and air-conditioning. You are pampered with feather beds and down comforters and pillows.  Each stateroom has its own bathroom and shower.

SILVER DISCOVERER

Silver Discoverer

Silver Discoverer

Silver Discoverer is expertly engineered to explore the most isolated archipelagos of the Pacific. Her small size and shallow draft allow close-up access to rugged coasts well beyond the reach of ordinary vessels. And she has been newly refurbished to help guests maximize their experience and build a genuine connection with the regions they visit.

Spacious decks and panoramic public rooms mean the drama of the unexpected is never far from view. A fleet of Zodiacs allows exploration from the water or remote landings anywhere nature or curiosity dictate. Since many of our expeditions sail to some of the world’s most pristine coral reef systems, there’s a glass-bottom boat for underwater viewing along with a full complement of snorkeling equipment and a dive program for advanced divers.

We’ve also taken great care to assemble a truly outstanding Expedition Team, composed of experts in the culture, history and wild life of the destinations, to present informal talks, guide Zodiac outings and lead small-group explorations ashore. While back on board, every creature comfort awaits: an ocean-view suite, in-suite bar and the head-to-toe pampering of a butler; elegant lounges and open bar where fellow travelers gather to swap tales about their day’s adventures; and cuisine that meets Silversea’s standards of culinary excellence — which are lofty, indeed. Imaginative menus in The Restaurant feature both regional offerings and dishes inspired by Relais & Châteaux. Additional amenities include a sun-catching pool deck, an internet cafe, a fitness center, and a beauty and massage center — particularly alluring after an adventurous day ashore.

SILVER GALAPAGOS

The government of Ecuador, and in particular the Galapagos National Park Service, closely monitors and control visitor activity in the Galapagos Islands. They have established very strict regulations concerning everything from which vessels are allowed to operate, to the licensing of naturalist guides. The maximum capacity of any ship visiting the Galapagos Islands is 100. You will not find any huge mega liners here! Vessel permits may no longer be bought and sold, or combined, as in the past. This means the majority of vessels are just 16 passengers, with just a few with higher capacities.

We have selected a small cross section of ships and yachts to present here. These are vessels I have been on or with which am very familiar. One of my favorites is the SILVER GALAPAGOS, a smaller sister ship to the Spirit of Oceanus. She is all-suite – very large cabins – some with private balconies. She is very elegant, comfortable and stable. She carries up to 100 guests, though designed to carry a bit more. At the other end of the spectrum is a yacht like the Athala II – only 16 guests – very deluxe. In between are ships like the Isabela II, Eclipse and La Pinta in the 40-48 guests capacity range.

Besides these five ships, we can offer space on any of the dozens of ships and yachts sailing in the Galapagos Islands. Would you prefer a sailing ship? We can do that. Would you prefer an elegant older yacht – we can do that. We can even put together shore based tours using day boats to go out to visit islands and returning to your hotel each night. Just let us know your preferences.

All cabins are outside Suites, ranging in size from 210 square feet to 287 square feet, with marble bathrooms, beds that can be configured as large Queen or two twins, sofa, flat screen TV, vanity dresser, large closets, and mini-bar. A crew of 70 (an incredible 1.4 to 1 ratio) looks after all your safety, comfort, dining and intellectually stimulating needs. There is ample room throughout the ship and on the open decks. Enjoy two hot tub spas, a shaded outdoor seating area, and an upper sun deck to relax. A masseuse is available to ease your tired body after a day of exploration. An elevator serves all five decks.

TUCANO

M/Y TUCANO

Associated tours: The Amazon

Our trips are quite active and we spend most of our time off the vessel exploring the forest, but when we are on board, the Motor Yacht Tucano offers plenty of space to spread out and contemplate the wonders of nature. With over seventy large windows, the vessel is bright and airy. The cabins and the salon are air-conditioned and have elegant raised wood paneling in the style of the 19th Century steamers that cruised these majestic rivers.

The Motor Yacht Tucano is designed to offer an experience that is comfortable, intimate, efficient and fun. The vessel is not a luxury vessel, but then the best way to experience the Amazon is to dive in and embrace the environment – to experience to the fullest the exotic sights and sounds of this greatest wilderness on earth.

Middle Balcony
This wide balcony faces forward and is a serene spot to relax as we wind our way along the forested shore. It is also a good place to observe monkeys jumping from one vine to another and pink dolphins leaping into the air.

Large Observation Deck
The top deck is open and has a large shade canopy. It is a wonderful place to spot wildlife or soak in the vastness of the Amazon. There is space to catch some sun and watch the Macaw parrots screeching across the afternoon sky.

A Generous Salon
From this large space, filled with windows and situated at the front of the vessel, we are treated to fantastic vistas of the wilderness around us. Meals are served here and we have a library of choice books on Amazon wildlife.

Comfortable and Private Cabins
All of the cabins on Tucano are outside cabins and have lots of windows. Each cabin is air-conditioned and has a private bathroom. Since the corridors are on the inside of the vessel, the cabins offer privacy and we can leave our curtains open to the awe inspiring vistas of the Amazon. A third small bed can be added to some cabins in order to accommodate three persons.

Cabin Categories

All of the cabins on Tucano are outside cabins with large windows, private baths with showers, and air-conditioning. There are two categories of cabins. Yellow Category cabins are the larger cabins and have beds side by side. The Green Category cabins are smaller and have above and below berths.

Yellow Category Cabins: The five cabins in this category are large and have beds side by side. They are numbered 3, 4, 5, 6, and 0. Cabin “0” has a queen size bed beside a single bed.

Triple Cabins: Some of the Yellow Category cabins can accommodate three travelers. This is helpful for families with children. In cabins “3” and “4” a narrow bed can be placed between the single beds.

Green Category Cabins: The four cabins in this category have above and below berths with a single size mattress above and a single sized mattress below. These are cabins numbered 1, 2, 7, and 8. These cabins are significantly smaller than the Yellow cabins. But they are nonetheless comfortable outside cabins with large windows, private bathrooms, and air-conditioning.
