The 30.8 m Motor Vessel ALK (ex: Alkor) was built in 1965 in Germany as a research ship for renowned German research institute GEOMAR. ALK logged an impressive 326,000 Nm roaming the Baltic Sea and North Sea, until she was replaced by a larger research vessel.
In the 1990s ALK was refurbished in the Netherlands to become a private pleasure yacht. In the 2000s ALK received further upgrades to operate as a submarine support vessel, all while maintaining he excellent seagoing characteristics and character.
Her top speed is 11 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 4,000 Nm at 9.5 knots. Power come from a 425HP Deutz diesel engine, which operates very economically at 60 liters/hours at cruise speed.
She can accommodate up to 13 persons and is the ideal vessel for an owner looking to cruise the world with a highly seaworthy and spacious vessel that is a mix between a capable workboat and a yacht.
Equipped with an 8-ton certified A-frame crane and integrated dive center, ALK can handle a wide range of submersibles - yet adding another dimension of exploration.
ALK was dry-docked in the first half of 2023 for extensive works on the keel, hull and propulsion system. The vessel has been fully maintained and is ready to sail.
