Greg Mortimer anchors off Greencastle 15.05.22

GREENCASTLE this morning hosted a 'revolutionary' ship, the Greg Mortimer which was purpose-built for expeditions to the 'most remote places on earth'.
 
Built in 2019, it is the first passenger ship to feature the revolutionary Ulstein X-BOW®. This allows it to cross oceans more comfortably and efficiently and with expansive observation decks, to bring the passenger closer to the environment.
The vessel has both luxury communal areas and 'unsurpassed environmental credentials'.
The owners say it offers the perfect base camp for 'adventures at the outer limits of human exploration'.
The expedition ship, Greg Mortimer, anchored off Greencastle.
The boat, anchored this morning in Lough Foyle, accommodates an average of 132 expeditioners per voyage. It has 76 cabins, each with a view of the ocean. The ship also features a lecture lounge, multiple observation areas, a restaurant, a gym and wellness centre, jacuzzis, a mudroom and other amenities.

Update: At 12:30 pm today, Sunday 15th May, the Greg Mortimer raised anchor and left Lough Foyle.
