New Tortuga in Jardines de la Reina – Introductory Offer

by Charlie White

It has been an initiative of Avalon over the last decade to ensure the comfort of their guests and the luxury of the experiences in Jardines de la Reina by continually upgrading their yachts. In 2019, they released the Jardines Avalon III at 160 feet with the most updated amenities and highest level of comfort with 15 cabins and an incredible cruising ability. This vessel has set the standard for their newest project to be released in August of 2020, the NEW TORTUGA.

The former La Tortuga developed a strong following as THE floating hotel in Jardines de la Reina. Many anglers, divers, and eco adventurers have called this special place home for weeks on end, enjoying the classic comforts of this Cuban vessel. Now, with an increased demand for updates and higher levels of comfort and service, Avalon has invested in a massive improvement building a New Tortuga from the hull up.

This amazing 180 foot vessel will be permanently moored in Jardines de la Reina and will feature 20 staterooms, a spacious lounge, a modern dining room, and a sun deck to enjoy every aspect of the Gardens of the Queen. Each room will include personalised air conditioning and heating controls, ample storage space, and convertible double beds.

The New Tortuga will be the perfect base of operations for your week of fly fishing, diving, eco adventuring, and experiencing the pristine nature of Jardines de la Reina through your conservation workshop program.

The helm deck includes four suites with balconies as well as a delightful jacuzzi and sun deck to enjoy the incredible views. The upper deck includes eight double rooms with private bathrooms as well as a lovely dining area and rear patio. The main deck includes another eight double rooms, a comfortable lounge area with large couches and areas to relax. This is the main entrance area to the yacht and features a massive rear deck and platform to keep all of your gear organised with easy access. The lower deck is where the crew resides along with the engine room powering this incredible vessel.
