The 59 metre explorer superyacht Akula was originally built by Amels in 1974 as a pilot vessel and converted into an explorer yacht by Vosper Thornycorft in 1999. During Akula’s conversion a flightdeck and helicopter hangar were addded. Akula underwent an interior and exterior refit in 2008 and in 2010 her engines were overhauled. She is listed for sale with Bluewater with an asking price of $ 10,950,000. Here Akula is pictured in the Caribbean in April 2013.
