ADVENTURE is a true ocean going vessel originally built to spend long periods at sea away from any shore support and is a credit to her owner. Originally constructed as a Coastal/Baltic tug in 1990, she never saw use in this role. Purchased new, her visionary Owner embarked on a total conversion project with the renowned commercial shipyard CMN in Cherbourg (France) to the designs of Martin Francis and Jean-Pierre Paquet. After 2 careful years of study, hard work and attention to detail, she was launched as a yacht on 26th April 1999. She has maintained her commercial robustness in addition to the new “expedition yacht” look and comfort that she offers.

ADVENTURE was originally built as a Coastal/Baltic tug in 1990, although she never saw use in this role. Having purchased her new, Adventure's visionary owner embarked on a total conversion project with the renowned commercial CMN shipyard in Cherbourg (France) to the designs of Martin Francis and Jean-Pierre Paquet. After 2 years of careful study, hard work and attention to detail, she was launched as a yacht on 26th April 1999.
She has maintained much of her commercial robustness despite the Expedition Yacht look and comfort that she offers. Recently, in excess of $1.5m USD has been spent refurbishing her interior and on thorough engineering refits and upgrades. See below under "2017 COMPLETED WORKS" for a full breakdown.
There is accommodation for 12 guests overnight and plenty of exterior space and deck entertaining areas for up to 70 day passengers. Crew accommodation and the Laundry was completely refurbished in 2013/14 to the highest standard.
The full commercial galley is vast and able to cater for any size event
