Because of the nature of the Goliath Engines, the maximum craft speeds in standard circumstances is ~300m/s, at a ceiling of ~10,000m. While strategic use of the mini Rapier-Quartet and Panther Afterburner could certainly increase the maximum apoapsis, no form of orbit is capable with this craft in its present form.

An impressive fuel economy (note the one-hour remaining fuel-time utilizing only the Major and Minor Goliath Engines), reasonable flight times, ample cargo room, and personnel cabin makes The Southern Belle a versatile inner-Kerbin transport-and-rescue craft.

Fly one today! (You won’t believe it can!)
