An amazing offering, MARITOL is an ice class car & truck carrier that was built for Icelandic Waters service by Harstad, Norway, Shipyard in 1975 then rebuilt in 2002 for use as professional offices & an unique living situation. That said, she was built for service in some of the most challenging waters on Earth & she is not far from returning to commercial use; or, as a pleasure vessel & floating palace (or both); she contains enormous space on numerous levels & presents opportunities for varied & numerous service limited only by one's imagination. She could be returned to Ferry Service, various inter-island transportation services come to mind, she's turn-key for use as a very large & mobile residence and/or office & headquarters for a business enterprise, etc. "MARITOL" features hydraulically controlled removable walls on three sides to "let in" that Spring breeze and, let's just say: more than adequate accommodations including an absolutely modern galley, a walk-in refrigerator, washer dryer, a walk in shower the size of most boats' staterooms, and enough deck space (on 4 levels) to entertain, say, two or three hundred of your closest friends. As a working ship, the owner has been extraordinarily respectful in her renovation so as not to antiquate any of her systems, she appears easily returned to commercial service operation. Private waterfront home/office/studio? Drive through yachting? This also might make a very interesting salvage vessel... Creativity is key here & this extraordinary vessel offers remarkable opportunities to exercise your imagination or to simply enjoy the pleasing treatments that have already been rendered upon this remarkable vessel. MARITOL appears to us to represent an unusually fine opportunity & an outstanding value.
