M/V Viaggio

M/V Viaggio

Experience Alaska on a fully-crewed 72′ yacht. Kayak with whales, watch wildlife, and enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset. You own the vessel for the trip & can even pilot it if you’d like!

Viaggio is a 72′ motor-yacht manufactured by Hatteras in South Carolina. With a cruising speed of 8-10 knots, she sleeps six guests with a master suite and two twin berths.

The dining area is on the enclosed aft deck with heat/air for comfortable 180-degree views. The salon is well appointed with large windows for viewing scenery and wildlife with ease.

Viaggio’s wheelhouse provides a great view. For those interested in learning piloting skills, there is ample opportunity to spend time with Captain Trig in the wheelhouse learning about Alaska and captaining the boat.
