Following on from our story about an old Feadship with modern day Gyroscopic Stabilizers comes news of another old lady
Having impressed owners and onlookers across the Mediterranean region for four and a half decades, the 25.8 metre Olympia has returned home to the Feadship in the Netherlands for a comprehensive refit.
Launched in 1969 as Monara, her current owners intend to restore her to her original name and condition in a comprehensive project inspired by her sister-ship.
Monara and Din-Dina III (now Sultana) were both built completed in 1969 for Italian clients. These elegant motoryachts exuded the spirit of the age and have more than stood the test of time aesthetically.
Sultana was successfully refitted at Feadship from 2011 to 2012 and the results served as an inspiration to the owners of Olympia, and the same team that was responsible for Sultana’s rebuild will now be working on refit.
The yacht’s interior had already been dismantled in preparation for the project and the refit team members were delighted to find her in great shape after all these years.
Now this classic yacht will be restored into better than new condition, cherishing the past while adding the very latest technologies and comforts.
The refit is slated for completion in Spring 2015 at which time she will then revert to her original name: Monara.
