Photos - B-80 submarine Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the home base of Comtourist, so the news that somebody bough an old Zulu class Soviet submarine and moored it in the Amsterdam harbour reached us quickly. We took our boat, sailed to the North harbour and climbed on the submarine. The Zulu is now gone but we managed to get inside the sail and shoot some nice photos.

The submarine in question is the B-80, a Project 611 or Zulu V class diesel submarine commissioned in the nineteen fifties. The B-80 was planned to be used as party ship so all the interior is stripped out. We managed to climb onboard the submarine and make some photo’s inside the sail and from the top of the bridge. The submarine turned out to be a bad party location and is now due to be scrapped soon, a real shame as no other Zulu class submarines are on display for the public.
