Re: Hi from France 🇫🇷

Yesterday, yacht La Sultana, a former - and famous - Cold War soviet spy ship. She was launched in 1962 as a soviet ferry originally named Aji Petri.

In 1970, the Soviet navy commandeered Aji Petri for use to spy on the United States and Britain.

In late 2015 after a seven-year refitting 'requiring over one million two hundred thousand hours of labour' the soviet spy ship became one of the most amazing superyacht now named La Sultana.

According to Wikipedia, 'during the refitting process several spying instruments were discovered, including a radioactivity detector and thick aluminum insulation across the entire boat'.

Website of superyacht La Sultana, English version (history, refit, specifications).
