In its first 50 years, the 54-metre vessel connected the cities of Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Kotor and Split and was able to carry up to 700 passengers at a time. She was acquired by her current owner in 2004 who painstakingly refurbished the vessel and converted her into the luxury yacht we see today. A new Art Nouveau interior captures the style of Seagull II's original launch period of the 50s. Here she is seen in the city of Birgu on the island of Malta.
