Titan at sunset in Monaco
Titan’s life started out in 1967 when she was launched as the HMS Beagle, a Bulldog-class survey vessel in the Royal Navy. She took her original name from the legendary ship that carried Charles Darwin on his global expeditions. She served the Royal Navy up until 2002 when she was sold to be converted into a luxury superyacht. The conversion was completed in 2005 and the vessel was renamed Titan and launched as the superyacht explorer we see today. Bjorn Johansson was in charge of redesigning the yacht’s interior to carry up to 24 guests in 12 staterooms. She might have been given a new purpose, but Titan retains all her ocean-going capabilities such as an impressive range of 6,000 nm, making her the perfect travel companion at sea.
