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.
