GALAPAGOS
72m RESEARCH SHIP
A former Russian Arctic supply vessel. Originally named “Rem Fantasy”, this vessel was purchased for conversion to an explorer yacht. Despite its age (30 years) and some obsolete technology (water cooled gyro compass with glass valve semi-conductors!) the ship was sound and offered immense potential.

Solent International visited the ship in Norway and carried out a detailed examination for a comprehensive re-build specification, following a general arrangement prepared by London based yacht designers, H2 Yacht Design.
