In May 1967, the M/N FORREST was launched to sea, her name being homage from the Falkland islanders to Dr. W. Forrest Mc Wahn, Minister of the United Free Church for Falkland islands, who served from 1934 to 1965 earning the affection of the local community. The M/N FORREST had a cost of approximately 600,000 sterling pounds, and is 26.21 metres in length, with a 6.7 metre beam and a depth of 3.27 metres. She initially had a Gross Registered Tonnage of 144 tons, and was equipped with an 8-cylinder Kelvin engine which is still in service today.

On the 1st October 2007, after a full reformation of her accommodation facilities, decks, engine room and other areas, she was set to sea again, fully refurbished and equipped with first-class facilities for expedition cruises. With her 40 years of existence and regular yearly maintenance, the M/N FORREST boasts an excellent conservation state in her entire structure. In a recent refurbishment, she was installed with all the electronic and security technology currently required by the Port Authorities.
