A 225-foot Russian navy ship was converted into a luxury superyacht named Olivia that's now on sale for nearly $27 million with Burgess Yachts.
The navy ship was first assembled in 1972 by Finnish maker Laivateollisuus to serve as a hydrographic surveying vessel for the Russian Navy. However, the ship found new life in 2011 when it was transformed into its new state as a luxury yacht with amenities like a 12-person jacuzzi and sun pads for comfortable lounging under the sun.
Olivia's transformation was completed by Rouvia Road Yacht Design and Construction and Droulers Architecture, focusing on both the interior and exterior of the ice-class navy ship.
The plush amenities and design aboard Olivia disguise, but pay homage, to the yacht's previous life. Take a look:
Olivia is powered by a 2,000 horsepower engine.
This gives the ship a top speed of 15 knots, about 17.3 miles-per-hour, and a cruising speed of 12 knots, about 13.8 miles-per-hour, according to Burgess Yachts.
The navy ship turned yacht has a range of 15,000 nautical miles, about 17,262 miles.
The ship has 39-foot wide beam…
… and a 16.4-foot draft.
Olivia also comes with retractable Rolls-Royce stabilizers.
According to Burgress Yachts, the interior has a “contemporary calm” look.
This is conveyed through the hardwood-lined walls…
…and neutral-colored fabrics, mainly cream, white, and earth tone.
For indoor entertainment, Olivia has a movie theater room.
Meals with special guests can be eaten in the formal dining room.
Olivia can accommodate up to 10 guests in the four double cabins and the owner's cabin.
The owner's cabin comes with a private office for work at sea.
The ship also has accommodations for up to 26 crew members.
