MV Doulos is almost a heritage ship and has seen 96 years of the wretched human history. The ship is one of the oldest still serving the seafarers, and now it is going to host luxury guests as it would soon be turned into a hotel. The MV Doulos Hotel would come with restaurants and a bookshop. Singapore businessman, Eric Saw is going to invest a whopping $5.33 million in order to upgrade the archaic and dying ship into a girl again.
Saw, director of BizNaz Resources International purchased the ship for an undisclosed amount from German Christian charity GBA Ships who used to use the ship as a floating bookshop. With luxury hotel rooms, restaurants, banquet rooms, a maritime museum and offices, Doulos would now operate under the new name of Duolos Phos.
This ship sure has seen the depravity of wars, drudgery of being a bookwork and the betrayal that books do to humans in the name of intellectualism, and shall now see the beauty of luxury and decadent lifestyle in the final moments of its life. In fact, thanks to luxury, the Duolos which was to be sent to a scrap yard will now rejuvenate into a shining luxury cruise liner.
