The highly anticipated completion of the 88.5-metre explorer yacht Olivia O draws nearer as her final outfitting stage proceeds. Built partially in Croatia to the technical standards of Ulstein Verft AS in Norway, Olivia O is currently completing outfitting at the Palumbo Shipyard facility in Malta. Announced by the Norwegian commercial giant in 2016 as its first luxury yacht undertaking, Olivia O sports an exterior design that was collaboratively devised by the renowned Monaco-based yacht designer Espen Øino and Ulstein. The resulting X-Bow platform is designed to endure all sea conditions, with Ulstein contributing its vast experience in building durable deep-sea platforms.Olivia O yacht fitting out at Palumbo Malta yardPhoto: Emmanuel L.
