Fortaleza is not for sale to US citizens or residents while in US waters.

I have just inspected Fortaleza the 85' (25.9m) 2004 INACE tri-deck Explorer. Fortaleza was build for a Brazilian client who cruised her for several years before listing her for sale with me. I have know her since her design was developed and keel laid. She was purchased by a Marine Archeology and Exploration Adventure charter group and has been chartering in the Med. She is now back in the US.

Main Salon

Fortaleza is in excellent conditons, her engine room and all work spaces are tidy and well looked after and they have made a number of upgrades. The interior looks to be in as good of conditon as when she was last sold.

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.

Fortaleza is a huge volume boat with the space and features you will not find in another boat in her size range. When I presented her at the Fort Lauderdale boat show in 2004 all of the clients viewing her would stop during the showing and turn to me and say "HOW BIG IS SHE?", some did it several times.

On Deck Master Stateroom

Fortaleza has twin master staterooms, one on the main deck and one below plus a queen stateroom and a 4 bed bunk room with full size single beds. All the staterooms have spacious heads with large showers.

VIP Stateroom

On the main deck, she has a great galley which is open to the saloon and very well equipped. There is a crew mess area, the crew also has a small lounge in their quarters.


The main deck also features comfortable dining and lounge areas, separate bar, large day head, full beam master stateroom and outdoor dining.

Side bar off Salon

The skylounge has a TV lounge with L shaped settee, a office area and a second desk. There is a dedicated technical space between the lounge and the large wheelhouse. The wheelhouse has a large 6'6" settee that can double as a day bed, great helm and navigation area. There is extensive storage.

Skylounge Settee

Skylounge Office and TV

The captains and crew quarters are located directly off of the bridge down one set of stairs. There is a small crew lounge, large captains cabin with head, crew cabin for 2 with head and a forward storage area.

There is extensive dry goods and cool storage on the vessel.

The boat deck is behind the skylounge and the tender cradle has a built in gas storage tank. There is a large flybridge with helm, wet bar, BBQ area, Jacuzzi and comfortable seating. The bow area is large and can be set up as another lounging area.

Fortaleza is a proven cruising vessel that has the features and functions like a much larger yacht in a size that is easy to operate and crew.

Pilot House

There is also the possibility to continue to charter the vessel through the foundation and have access to exclusive dive sites.
