Superyacht Lady Hoo for charter at Northrop & Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
Rico Staple at Northrop & Johnson has signed the 33.8m classic gentleman’s motor yacht Lady Hoo as a central agency for charter based in the Philippines.
Built by Richards of Lowestoft in 1964, she was extensively refitted and redecorated in 2008 to combine the traditional warmth and elegance of a classic British-designed and built motor yacht with the utmost comfort and style. She’s fully equipped with the most modern safety equipment and is classified to Lloyds100 A1+, but is also economical, being powered by quiet and dependable engines.
A spacious saloon with separate dining area is on the main deck. Throughout the yacht the interior design is complemented by an extensive collection of 19th century Chinese paintings. Unusually in a yacht of her size, Lady Hoo has two master guest cabins. On the main deck lies the master suite with queen-size bed and en suite bathroom (with bath), while the second master suite, also with an en suite bathroom, is situated on the accommodation deck.
In addition to the two master cabins there are two spacious twin bedded cabins, each with an en suite bathroom, one of which connects to the single cabin. The vast aft deck with mahogany dining table also features a fully cushioned sunbathing area along the stern and bar with refrigerator and ice maker. With full air-conditioned accommodation for up to nine guests and an experienced crew of 14, Lady Hoo has everything that a discerning charter guest could require. For those not used to the ways of the sea she is also fully stabilised for a smooth cruise.
Lady Hoo is available for charter at rates starting from $49,000 per week.
