Spacious interiors and plenty of old-world charm – the Galileo is all about small ship experiences with big ship comforts.

The M/S Galileo is your home at sea in Greece. As a Motor Sailer, the Galileo mostly uses motors for propulsion, reaching a cruising speed of 11 knots, but also has sails for a more romantic option. Built in 2007 and renovated in 2016, the Galileo can accommodate 49 guests in 25 nicely appointed cabins. Traditional wood panelling and trim are found throughout the boat, adding to the old-world charm. We believe in travelling on our stomachs, so the onboard menu reflects typical Greek dishes. And as a smaller ship, the Galileo can dock in smaller ports that larger ships can’t reach, away from the tourist crowds.

Ship features

The spacious, 48-metre (157-foot) Galileo provides plenty of indoor and outdoor space to relax. Soak in passing scenery from the large sun deck, equipped with sun beds, deck chairs and tables with umbrellas. Enjoy meals in the comfortable indoor dining room, or toast to your adventures with fellow travellers in the indoor or shaded outdoor lounge with bar.
