General Description

Steamship Admiral (project No 730) (formerly named “Admiralteets”) was built in 1955 in St Petersburg in Russia at the Dubitski shipyard No 711. Admiral was intended to serve the Soviet Navy as an auxiliary ship (tugging and providing with steam and water). The ship had a caisson and a cannon that can be mounted to the deck. In the early days the crew had 22-24 members. Coal was used as fuel and there was (and is) a 500 IHP triplex steam-engine in the heart of the ship During 1989 – 1991 Admiral made several trips to Finland (Helsinki, Naantali and Kotka), Russia (St. Petersburg), Latvia (Riga) and also a long trip to Hamburg (Germany). In 1995 – 1996 the tugboat was thoroughly rebuilt. It was turned into a salon-steamer and a restaurant. The restaurant has been open since 1996 and is specialized in the Mediterranean, Balkan and Russian cuisine. In 1999 it was chosen as the best restaurant in Tallinn (competition held by the largest Estonian weekly newspaper “Eesti Ekspress”). The restaurant is open all year round. It has all valid licenses and EU certificate needed to operate as a catering company.
