Main Salon

FORTALEZA has been part of a Marine Archeology and Exploration Adventure Charter business. This presents a rare opportunity for her new owners to continue operating this highly acclaimed, very successful Archeology and Adventure Charter firm with its excellent momentum moving forward into 2012 and beyond.

When you step on Fortaleza and you instantly feel how solid and sea worthy she is. She is robust in all areas and imparts a feeling of security and comfort.

On Deck Master Stateroom

With over 100 years combined experience and often referred to as the Lewis and Clark of the ocean, the FORTALEZA’s owners and their hand picked team of archeologists and ocean scientists have discovered numerous ancient shipwrecks off the coasts of Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Sicily and Malta. Through their efforts the owners have developed very desirable relationships with governments, cultural institutions and Universities surrounding the Mediterranean that provide them exclusive access to numerous areas and sites not available to other yachts or individuals. Often, berthing and utilities are provided for FORTALEZA in prime marinas in return for the exploration of local waters.
