The yacht used to be a Dutch pilot vessel named Elanymor. Akula has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.
She is powered by 3 Deutz AG diesel engines. Which bring her a top speed of 13 knots. Her cruise speed is 10 knots. We estimate her range to be above 5,000nm.
In 1999 the ship was converted into an exploration superyacht by Vosper Thornycroft, adding a flight deck and a helicopter hangar.
In 2008 her exterior was refitted. Superyacht Akula is equipped with four Vosper stabilizers that assist rough weather heli operations allowing comfortable landings in up to around Force 6 weather conditions.
Akula can accommodate 10 guests in 5 staterooms and has crew accommodation for 17.
Her features include a sauna and a fitness room. She is capable of professional helicopter operations
The yacht’s owner was Jonathan Faiman. He sold the yacht in 2020.
