The ship was launched on December 29, 1913 under the name of Tsar Mikhail Feodorovich - it was the most modern and technically advanced icebreaker of its time. In 1914, Tallinn became its home port.


Suur Tõll is open to visitors in Tallinn's Seaplane Harbour. It is a historical ship in a fairly original condition.
