This ship was laid down in the mid-80's in Romania to become the yacht of Ceausescu, Romania's communist dictator. When his regime collapsed the vessel remained incomplete. She was bought in the mid-90's by Greeks and renamed Pyrros with the intention to convert her into a ferry for the Greece - Italy run. She remained idle at Elefsina for years. In September 2004 she was sold to John Papanikolaou (owner of the CHRISTINA O.) with the intention to become a mega yacht. She was taken to Ambelakia but remains untouched.
