about the M/V Togo
Built in the UK in 1954 by the legendary Dunston Shipyard, Togo was originally used as a North Sea trawler before being converted into a Lloyd’s safety vessel in the 1980s. In 2018, she was recommissioned and upgraded to become an expedition ship. With room on board for just 12 passengers, Togo has the lovely feel of a bygone era of tramp steamers, with mahogany panelling adding to the atmosphere.
Small in size but sturdy as an ox, Togo can access some of the smallest and most secluded fjords and coves along the coastline that few others can. Two zodiacs on-board offer polar explorers versatility and space for off-ship excursions and we will aim to have you out exploring by zodiac or on land at every opportunity.
Her deck areas are spacious with semi-enclosed decks on the sides from which to admire the stunning landscape. The navigation bridge is open during your adventure so you can chat away with the crew and it’s an ideal place from which to spot wildlife.
