The Beagle was named after the HMS Beagle, on which Charles Darwin made his famous voyage to the Galapagos Islands.
The sailing yacht is a magnificent 105-foot twin screw steel-hulled brigantine with teak decks and beautifully designed interiors. The Beagle is one of a class by itself among sailing yachts in the Galapagos. She was built by Cubow Ltd. in Woolwich, England, in the 1970s and registered with Lloyd’s (number Y 195095), but her designer is unknown.
Meals are a fusion of Ecuadorian and international cuisine and are served al- fresco or in the dining room inside. A coffee and tea station, a well-stocked bar and snacks are also available for passengers.
