Feadship’s motoryacht Lady May, formerly Como, has been listed for sale with Peter Bennett of Bluewater for an asking price of €35 million.
The 46.6m build was launched in January 2014 at the Dutch yard’s Aalsmeer facility. She is one of just 4.7 per cent of Feadship builds to be built entirely of aluminium and one of 2.4 per cent of its fleet with a semi-displacement hull – a design type that hadn’t been used by the yard for 31 years prior to her construction.
46.6m Lady May
She was built for a very experienced owner who used Dubois Naval Architecture – primarily known for its work on sailing yachts – for the naval architecture and exterior profiling, which is sleek and innovative with a modern bow and whaleback sheer.
She boasts notably large windows in the hull and a great deal of glass in the superstructure, the latter of which is placed over the metal rather than set into it, creating a continuous surface. Incorporating a large amount of glass into designs is something that Feadship is renowned for, and has extended through to its current 33.5m projects in particular.
The sun deck with the flybridge was a special request from the owner. The area can either be surrounded by glass and climate-controlled with its built-in ventilation system, or the glass can be lowered if desired. Other features of the sun deck include the use of Macassar ebony – an unusual choice for an outer deck that required special lacquering solutions – with a marble-clad cocktail bar and a barbeque.
White marble, stainless steel trim, Macassar ebony cabinets and bleached oak joinery create a modern, sophisticated and calming interior, which was designed by UK-based Redman Whiteley Dixon. She can accommodate 10 guests over a five-stateroom layout, encompassing an owner’s stateroom, two double staterooms and two twin staterooms.
Sistership - 46m Kiss, which was delivered on Valentine’s Day in 2015, is also on the market now through Y.CO.
