Solent Refit has announced a unique opportunity to purchase Lady K II, which was built by Austin & Pickersgill shipyard in Sunderland and delivered in 1961. This classic 58m custom-built superyacht was found in a seemingly neglected state in Marseille four years ago by Allan Foot, the Managing Director of Solent Refit. Foot went on to find a buyer who could appreciate the incredible restoration potential offered by Lady K II and arranged to have her delivered to his UK-based facility.

Unfortunately, the owner’s business commitments elsewhere stalled the refit works, providing an opportunity for a new owner to take over the project and enjoy complete input into the remaining transformation.

“It’s an opportunity for someone to obtain a true classic, one of very few left in the world,” Foot explained. “After ultra-sound testing, we found the hull to be in surprisingly good condition. We have a plan and costings for the rest of the work needed, but a new owner is required to pick-up from where we are now. It’s at a stage where they can do what they like with the yacht”.

M/Y Lady K II

Lady K II, formerly known as Lisboa II and Princess Tanya, is able to accommodate eighteen guests across nine staterooms. On the upper deck is a twin guest room and a master stateroom with a study, dressing room, separate shower room and spa pool bathroom. There are a further four light-filled en-suite staterooms on the main deck, with an additional three staterooms on the lower deck.

The salon, which Foot describes as ‘enormous’, has an integrated bar and dining area that spans the full width of the yacht. There is an additional bar and dining area in the upper deck salon and she also features a gymnasium, sauna, beauty salon and a jacuzzi on the upper deck.

The yacht remains at Solent Refit and is priced upon request.
