Beagle is a striking 105 foot brigantine built in England in the 1970s. The accommodation is spacious and you’ll be looked after by the friendly, professional crew of 6.

With wide decks and ample seating areas, Beagle is a spacious yacht and you’ll soon feel at home. Meals are served on deck when weather allows, so you can enjoy island views as you dine. There’s also an interior dining area. The lounge is the perfect place to relax and look through a book, while the deck has both sunny and shaded areas for you to enjoy.

The 6 double cabins benefit from air conditioning and have a double lower bunk plus a single upper bunk. A 7th cabin has single lower and upper bunks and can accommodate 1 or 2 passengers. All have shower rooms with hot and cold running water.
