Introduction & history
M/Y Grace’s stellar past includes ownership by millionaire tycoons like Sir George Tilley and Aristotle Onassis, a brief stint in the British navy and the vacation home of guests recognized worldwide, including Winston Churchill.
This yacht has traversed the waters of this world under many names, but we have rechristened her with a name that takes her back into her history; to the very best of her times. Named after her late owner, Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco, the name is a representation of her elegance, beauty and prestige. Grace is the ideal yacht for the the traveler who seeks a true explorer experience, complemented with excellent service, superb accommodations and excellent dining. All who travel on-board this yacht will be part of a mission to bring to life the natural living legacy of the islands.
