OLIVIA O' DOCKS IN MONACO
The stunning reverse-bow explorer yacht Olivia O has finally arrived in Monaco for its billionaire owner, shipping magnate Eyal Ofer.
The 89-metre explorer yacht was designed and built by Norwegian yard Ulstein Verft at the Palumbo Shipyard in Malta. It is reportedly the first time that Ulstein’s trademarked X-Bow has appeared on a yacht.
The shipbuilder is more accustomed to creating commercial ships for the oil industry, which explains why Monaco-based billionaire Eyal Ofer, whose fortune partly derives from shipping, recruited Ulstein to design his latest toy.
Olivia O is reportedly the largest ever explorer vessel in terms of volume built in the 80 to 90 metre range and is characterised by her striking reverse bow and explorer profile.
“Olivia O is arguably one of the most robust and capable superyachts ever built. Her commercial hull design and Norwegian build quality are truly impressive, able to handle the toughest sea conditions with ease,” Patrick Coote, Head of Northrop & Johnson Europe, told Monaco Life. “We’re starting to see more and more interest in this type of vessel from clients who increasingly want to venture to remote locations and experience some of the planet’s last remaining wilderness.”
