Superyacht Olympia returns to Feadship after 45 years for refit
by Risa Merl
The 25.8m motor yacht was launched in 1969, along with her sister ship Sultana (ex-Din-Dina), and she was built for Italian owners. Sultana underwent a refit at Feadship from 2011 to 2012. 'The exceptional results served as inspiration to the owners of Olympia,' says Feadship project manager Harry Hankel. 'There is no better place to have a Feadship refitted than at her place of birth. Moreover, the same team that was responsible for Sultana’s rebuild will now be working on Olympia.'
Olympia's interior has already been dismantled in preparation for the extensive refit project. The yard was pleased to find the yacht still in good condition after four and a half decades. She will now be restored to what Feadship is describing as 'better than new condition.' The refit process will retain Olympia's classic charms while incorporating the very latest technology and luxurious comforts.
When the refit is completed in spring 2015, Olympia will then be re-christened as Monara – bring the classic superyacht's restoration full circle.
