88 Metre Espen Øino Explorer Olivia O Delivered

Ulstein Verft's 88.5 metre Espen Øino-designed explorer yacht Olivia O has been delivered, making her one of the world's largest explorer yachts.

After leaving Palumbo Superyachts earlier this month, the X-bow superyacht is currently located in La Spezia, according to BOATPro's AIS data.

Planning and engineering work began on the boat in November 2016. Designed and built by Ulstein Verft - a yard better known for commercial vessels, ferries and workboats, Olivia O is characterised by a striking reverse bow and explorer profile.

The design reduces pitching in heavy seas, while piercing smaller waves, and allowing comfort at faster speeds.

Olivia O can sleep up to 20 in eight cabins, including Pullman bunks while crew accommodation is for 30 people.

Other features include a large gym, cinema room, swimming pool and helipad. Olivia O draws 4.4m and has fastest recorded speed of 16.6 knots according to AIS data from BOAT International’s BOATPro

Øino has brought his extensive experience from designing many of the world’s largest explorer yachts, including Octopus, Bella Vita (ex-Northern Star) and Skat for German yard Lürssen as well as Abeking & Rasmussen's Cloudbreak.

This is the first superyacht project for Ulstein Verft, which has been building offshore support vessels and commercial craft in Norway for the past 99 years.
