Having impressed owners and onlookers across the Mediterranean region for four and a half decades, Feadship says the 25.80-metre 'Olympia' has returned home to the Netherlands for a comprehensive refit.

Launched in 1969 as Monara, her current owners intend to restore Olympia to her original name and condition in a comprehensive project inspired by her sister-ship.

Monara and Din-Dina III (now Sultana) were built in 1969 for Italian clients. “Sultana was successfully refitted at Feadship from 2011 to 2012 and the exceptional results served as an inspiration to the owners of Olympia,” comments 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.”
 
The yacht’s interior had already been dismantled in preparation for the project and the refit team members were delighted to find her in great shape after all these years. Now this classic Feadship will be restored into better than new condition, cherishing the past while adding the very latest technologies and comforts.
 
The refit is slated to be completed in Spring 2015 at which time Olympia will then be re-christened Monara.
