The ship used for espionage during the Cold War is available for charter. The restored vessel has been named La Sultana and is being offered to those wishing to rent it for from €225,000 per week.

«La Sultana, formerly known as Aji Petri, was launched in 1962 and first served» as a ferry in Bulgaria, said the company that provides the boat for charter. Then, in 1970, she was turned into a «spy ship». The boat was used by the Soviet Union in the Atlantic Ocean to informally spy on ships from the United States and the United Kingdom for several years.

Now the boat has been transformed into a recreational yacht with a 60's style interior, swimming pool and several kinds of «water toys» on board.
