Bluewater Yachting has been appointed central agents for the sale of superyacht Akula, the converted 1974 explorer vessel. Formerly a Dutch pilot vessel Akula was converted to a rugged exploration yacht in 1999 by Vosper Thornycroft.
BMT Nigel Gee provided all naval architecture and structural design for the conversion including the addition of a flight deck and helicopter hangar. A partial interior and extensive exterior refit was completed at H2X in La Ciotat in 2008 and engine and generator overhaul in Malta 2010.
She is a wonderful example of a well-kept conversion from her working days as a Dutch Pilot vessel. Originally built in Holland to the highest Dutch naval specification, her condition today reflects her high standard of construction and the maintenance and care that has followed throughout her life until now. She now awaits a new owner to continue the enjoyments of a truly special vessel.
Akula is being offered for sale at $ 14,750,000.
