The 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 1970s 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.
The M/S Beagle was fully renovated in September 2019 to offer our clients a new and unique experience while sailing across the beautiful Galapagos Islands.
With the client’s comfort as a priority, cabins maintenance included a new style wallpaper and ceiling, renovated carpets, new fans as well as a modern re-designed bathroom that included a new floor, toilets valve covers and sandblasting (non-slip) in the shower area.
Also, on each cabin and bathrooms, we gave general maintenance of walls, cornices, and sweepers
The social areas have also received a new decoration showcasing new white walls and carpets, and a beautiful and modern tapestry for our dining room chairs. General maintenance was also applied to all common areas including polishing of all bronze elements on board and wood floor in the outdoor dining room, tables, furniture and seats, roofs, cornices, and sweepers.
Our guest’s safety is the number one priority for us; therefore, we replaced the kitchen walls and floors to new stainless-steel elements. Utilitarian shelves, work table, and inns are now also covered with stainless steel.
Outside areas and the yacht structure also went through a general layover, including replacement of iron parts of the yacht, deep deck cleaning, polishing and lacquering of the deck exteriors.
