Interested in Chartering This Yacht?
MARCATO is an expedition yacht that enables luxury cruising to exotic distant shores where "white boats" may not have access- such as Cuba and The Galapagos. We offer custom itineraries throughout the Caribbean, Central America and will soon offer an Antarctic adventure. Cuba's south coast is virgin cruising territory with colonial cities such as Santiago de Cuba and Cienfuegos. Remote cays can provide weeks of fascinating and rewarding cruising that few yachtsmen have ever experienced. We have knowledgeable guides who will create a trip for your guests that will be nothing less than extraordinary.
This yacht has cruised from the Great Lakes to Alaska to the corners of the Caribbean Basin. She has proven herself to be able to deliver safety and comfort in extreme environments. Unhook from the marina. Leave the "white boats" behind. The most interesting cruising grounds are remote. So, what are you waiting for? We have the right equipment for your cruise. Plan your adventure with our captain and crew now.

We had a great trip from Key West to Havana in June. Onboard were Newporters Karen Kelly Shea, Ann Souder, Halsey Fulton, Pearl Macek and the owners. At 141' we were a snug fit in Marina Hemingway where we showed a 17' depth all the way in. Customs and Immigration were courteous and efficient and the marina staff was welcoming, as always. The view from the sundeck is extraordinary - 5 decks above the waterline! Onboard we received some of our business partners for meetings and this vessel was the perfect venue. The high ceilings and extra large cabins on MARCATO give it a unique feeling of spaciousness. Can't wait to join the vessel on its expeditions to the more remote areas of the Cuban coast.
