History

GBA Ships' pioneering first ship, Logos, was purchased in 1970. Over a 17-year period, over six and a half million visitors came to Logos during 408 ports of call in 108 countries. In 1988, Logos ran aground in atrocious weather conditions in Tierra del Fuego, hitting rocks in the Beagle Channel between Argentina and Chile. Though the ship could not be saved, not a single crewmember was lost, or even injured!
