The 68.8m (225.7ft) OLIVIA is a shining example of what is possible when a team of experts with a clear vision and an abundance of talent takes on a conversion project.
She was originally a hydrographic survey vessel in the Russian navy, built by Finnish yard O/Y Laivateollisuus and delivered in 1972. She was transformed in 2011 and what a transformation it is. Rouvia Road Yacht Design & Construction remodelled the exterior and a complete redesign of the interiors was entrusted to Droulers Architecture. With her ice-classed hull, phenomenal range of 15,000nm and every conceivable luxury amenity, she is ideally suited to long-distance, autonomous cruising anywhere in the world.
Outside she has acres of versatile space for relaxation and entertainment. Long, wide sidedecks and shaded areas with contemporary clean-lined furniture create al fresco spaces of varying formality and intimacy. There's also a 12-person jacuzzi on the huge bridge deck aft with symmetrical banks of sun pads forward of that.
Inside the contemporary calm theme continues with hardwood wall panels, cream, white and earth-toned fabrics and minimalist furniture, emphasising the pops of vibrant colour from the current owner's art collection. As well as a dedicated cinema and formal dining room, she has an owner's suite with private office and four further guest double cabins completing accommodation for 10 guests, with up to 26 crew to look after them.
She has exceptional tender and toy-carrying capacity and her single Deutz 2,000hp diesel engine gives her a top speed of 15kn and she'll cruise at 12kn. Fully retractable Rolls-Royce stabilisers keep her guests comfortable both underway and at anchor.
OLIVIA is a yacht of remarkable capability, exceptional quality and unquestionable style. Currently in the West Mediterranean, she is seriously for sale and personal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate this yacht in full. All expressions of interests are encouraged from owners with a taste for adventure.
