British shipyard Burgess Marine has confirmed the launch of 55m superyacht, Lady A from its facility in Portchester, Portsmouth following a 10-month refit.


The vessel, previously named Emihar Chios, Southern Cross III and Indian Princess, was originally launched in 1986 by Japanese builder Nishii Zosen Kk/Sterling Yachts. Her distinctive interior was the product of the famed Bannenberg studio.


Lady A will now continue with outfitting in nearby Southampton before moving to the Mediterranean for the summer season.
