Good Hope 56 #5 ORCA begins construction at KM Yachtbuilders

Edwin Joy

Construction for the Good Hope 56 for ORCA Research Ltd of Lissivigeen, Ireland is beginning at KM Yachtbuilders.

Highly customized for long duration research voyages, ORCA features an A-frame and winch for CTD sensors and ROV’s as well as a work area and diver recovery platform aft.

Cabins are versatile and can be custom configured for the particular equipment that a given team would need to accomplish its mission.

Auxiliary electric propulsion (and, of course, sails) allow for periods of silent running. The lifting keel gives access close to shore.
