Sultana receives major restoration

Oct 3, 2012 by Triton Staff

A major restoration of the 86-foot (26m) Feadship M/Y Sultana has been completed at Feadship in Holland.
Launched as Din-Dina in 1969, the yacht was found abandoned in a French yard in 2007 by Dutch sailor Kees van den Hoek. With the support of a businessman who was interested in owning the yacht, the nearly empty hull was returned to Holland, propelled by the original Gardner engines.
Sultana entered the charter fleet in the Med this summer.
