THE GALAPAGOS BEAGLE
The Beagle is named after HMS Beagle, in which Charles Darwin made his famous voyage to the Galapagos Islands, and later wrote his theory of evolution based on his findings in this extraordinary archipelago. A magnificent 105-foot twin screw steel-hulled brigantine with teak decks and beautifully designed interiors, The Beagle is in a class by itself among sailing yachts in the Galapagos. She was built by Cubow Ltd. in Woolwich, England, in the 1970’s and registered with Lloyd’s (number Y 195095), but her designer is unknown. She’s been a charter vessel in the Islands for over a decade and has been substantially refurbished under her current ownership. You will feel the sensation of space aboard the Beagle for kicking back and relaxing between your unforgettable visits on land. The saloon offers a small library of Galapagos literature, and a selection of games. All around the wide decks, comfortable seating allows you to choose sunshine or shade for lounging and observation. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served on board with the exception of the day you visit Puerto Ayora, when you will enjoy a meal in the highlands of Santa Cruz.
