Sulina was built by Cantieri Riunti dell Adriatico i Monfalcone and launched in 1939, reputedly for the royal family, and later confiscated by the government. This is not verified and official sources state the owner as "Romanian Government". Little is known about her history before 1942, when she was torpedoed by the Russian submarine A-3 outside Odessa 29.May. Here the wreck still rest today approx five nautical miles outside Odessa on a depth of 15 to 20 meter.
