Originally the vessel was built under russian ships register for 250 passengers, but after total reconstruction 2006 /2007 she was registered for 35 persons – possible upgrade on passenger number according to stability calculation – extra requirement only safety equipment due Ship register. (all reconstruction made met CRS standards – all paper and photo documentation awailable)
The vessel was re-designed as a multipurpose mini-high comfort-cruiser with 10-double bed, 2 single bed cabins – 22 pax beds 10-12m2 each, with an outward looking window, separate bathroom with hot water/cold water shower, sink and toilet. Each cabin has a separate air-condition system for cooling/heating with a thermostat. 9 separate crew cabins are placed on lower deck with crew mess and joined shower and toilet. Re-construction costs were over one million euros! There are potential business opportunities for this ship in Croatia so she does not have to go very far at all.

Outdoor multipurpose spaces:
Top Sun deck ~40 m2.
Upper deck lounge: ~25m2
Main – open deck – multipurpose:
– scuba diving: 22 divers can be comfortably placed – for recreational diving
– technical /research diving 15 divers can be comfortably placed
– waterlevel entrance from ships platform – room for 4 scuba divers at once with special ladders for easy access in and out.

Due to the ships equipment, quality and performance she can be exploited all year long in almost all weather-conditions. She is suitable for classic cruising and parties (top-sundeck has special stability features to hold dancers with portable bar and music equipment), scuba-cruises or various research expeditions. Because of her low-consumption rate of the engines, the awailability of spare parts (if unable to purchase all spare parts can be made) and the fact that almost all equipment (engines, generators, radar, helm etc.) is doubled, the vessel is safe to take almost wherever you want her to go and due to two side engines, she is very manouverable.
She has worked as dive support ship, so she has high pressure compressor and plenty of air tanks, also swim platform with ladder is designed to support divers.
The main deck has entrance in both sides of the ship, so it’s easy to access and dock the ship. In the entrance hall there is the bar and restaurant. You also have stairway to upper deck and stairway to crew accommodations below main deck.
The restaurant is located in aft of the main deck with access to well equipped galley and nice cockpit area.
