Accommodations: Boarding VIAGGIO is an ease via her spacious aft deck. Ascend a molded stairway to the enclosed outdoor salon which is climate controlled for your comfort. Double doors open to the updated and comfortable main salon featuring new soft goods. Located in the forward corner of the salon is the private guest stateroom access.
The guest area consists of 3 staterooms. The Queen Stateroom has a centerline, walk around queen berth with en suite head and great storage for your luggage. The two Twin Staterooms have identical layouts consisting of side-by-side berths and ample hanging locker space. The Twin Staterooms share a head with each other and can be accessed from either the hallway or one of the Twin Staterooms.
Located on the main deck, forward of the main salon is the galley and wheelhouse. Chef Tristin creates amazing food from within the galley and always enjoys guests stopping by to have a chat as she works on her culinary creations. Forward, in the wheelhouse, Captain Trig operates VIAGGIO deftly while guiding her through the vast waters of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
On deck, VIAGGIO has covered walk around decks for easy access and visibility over the entire yacht. A stairway from the outdoor salon accesses the fly bridge area.

About our Crews
Capt. Trigve Papenfuse
Trigve (Trig) has been boating since he was a child (a long time ago) in the waters of the Pacific Northwest with his family and friends. He knows the waters from Southern California to SE Alaska better than most and enjoys working hard to ensure our clients are always well cared for and get the first class experience we are known for.
Chef Tristin Papenfuse
Chef Tristin Papenfuse is a yacht chef and co-owner of Viaggio Charter, based out of Seattle, Washington. She began cooking in the kitchen with her mother and developed a passion for creating wonderful tastes and flavors early on. Tristin is a self-trained chef and takes every opportunity to learn something new from her peers and experimentation with new ingredients.
Tristin’s forte is seasonal and local Pacific Northwest fare, but she also enjoys working with any type of cuisine she can. She has been quoted as saying, “Even if you don’t think there is anything to eat in your fridge, chances are pretty good that I can make something out of what you do have.”
Growing up in Western Florida led to Tristin’s passion for boating, which she and her husband now share. Currently she masters her creations aboard their yacht, VIAGGIO, during charters in the PNW and SE Alaska throughout the summer. In addition, Tristin works freelance on yachts between SE Alaska and the Bahamas.
Tristin counts herself among the lucky few that are able to make a living while enjoying their passion. Every chance she gets, Tristin and Viaggio Charter try to give back to the community by working with local school fundraisers, SeaFair’s Special Needs Cruise, Epoch Expeditions and other non-profit organizations.
