We are very proud of launching the fifth Darwin Class 102' confirming that there is no other more successful explorer vessel’s model between 90 and 110 feet in the whole market.

Also here you can find the helm controls forward with the Captain's cabin immediately behind, followed by the cozy skylounge, which is ideal for close conversation.
