This Superyacht Has Been Converted From An Ex-Soviet Sub-Hunting Spy Ship

The drawn-out Cold War prompted the Soviet Union to produce countless military vehicles, aircraft, and naval vessels, many of which fell into severe disrepair after the collapse of the Eurasian socialist state in ’91. With a major shortage of funding and a markedly decreased need for as robust of a standing military, many former USSR military vessels were sold off or traded, including a 225.7’ ex-Soviet spy ship that’s since been converted into a modern superyacht.

Known as the “Olivia,” the boat’s constructed around a steel hull and superstructure. Originally built in 1972 for the purpose of hunting NATO submarines, the now 1,259 gross-ton ship was transformed into a luxury vessel by a Finnish shipbuilder in 2011 who equipped the boat with five cabins, multiple enormous teak sun decks, a massive 12-person roof-deck Hottub, Japanese-themed master bathroom, home theatre, and a myriad of plush lounges and living areas. Powered by 2,000hp Deutz engine that affords speeds of up to 15 knots, this ex-Soviet ship still boasts its original crane, which can lift one of the ship’s many tender boats and water toys. The boat is also arctic adventure-capable thanks to an ice-class-rating. The Olivia is currently for sale through Burgess Yacht Brokers with a price of $26,985,240.
