history of hope
The M/V Pacific Hope was purchased in 2013 by Marine Reach New Zealand. Since then, she has undergone extensive renovations to include suitable accommodations for 60 crew and medical personnel, training facilities and a fully functional dental/ophthalmology clinic. On June 29th, 2015, she departed New Zealand and led medical outreaches in Fiji and Vanuatu. Over the past three years, she has brought free medical care and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to thousands of men, women and children living in some of the most isolated islands in the South Pacific.
Following an exciting and dynamic outreach season in Vanuatu in 2017, M/V Pacific Hope berthed in Panama for maintenance from November 2017 to February 2018. She sailed from Panama and is now anchored in Portsmouth, Dominica where she is providing ship based construction, medical and ministry to the island communities hit hardest by Hurricane Maria.
