201' Astilleros Y Talleres expedition Megayacht
Voyager was purchased with the purpose of transforming her into the ultimate expedition vessel for exclusive charter guests. Carrying a helicopter with jet fuel storage and refuelling capability plus a mass array of tenders and toys, she was intended for extended cruising periods from remote tropical waters to extreme Alaskan winters, in comfort and style.
The interior has been completely redesigned in a young and colourful style, without compromising comfort.
With all these major improvements and thanks to her unique style, it’s not surprising that this chic expedition vessel immediately became a very popular yacht with charterers.
