Operated by: Variety Cruises
The Harmony G is a modern small ship with a sleek high-tech look very similar to the private yachts to be found in the famous ports of the world. The 53 metre Harmony G was launched in January 2001 and was completely refurbished in 2009/10 and again in 2013. Whilst she cannot be described as a luxury ship, she is certainly very comfortable and offers an intimate cruising experience. She complies with the most stringent SOLAS safety regulations ,while her powerful engines and state-of-the-art stabilisers allow for safe and comfortable cruising.
Life on board Harmony G centres around the Indoor / Outdoor lounge and its American bar, on the Upper Deck. The stylishly-appointed dining room located on Main Deck is surrounded by large panoramic windows. The spacious Sun Deck is the ideal location to bask in the sun, read a good book or just gaze at the scenery. The swimming platform on Harmony G's stern enables you to swim directly from the ship when weather and anchorage conditions permit.
