When the mighty Lady Moura first touched the water she officially became the most expensive yacht in the world; this year she celebrates her 30th birthday and is as pristine as the day Blohm+Voss launched her to international fanfare in 1990.
Lady Moura is a familiar face along the Cote d’Azur and has been used only sparingly with a mere 13,500 running hours on the clock. Always privately used and never chartered, she retains her air of mystique and sophistication.
With a whopping 6,359GT, there's certainly no shortage of space on board. She can sleep up to 26 guests, served by a complement of 72 crew, with an indoor-outdoor swimming pool, disco and helipad among her many amenities. Serving as a private summer residence, one of her seven decks is dedicated to family life with a lavish full-beam owner's suite and six cabins for exclusive family-use only (that's 2,600 square metres of private chambers).
Lady Moura even paved the way for a number of innovative design features seen on yachts today such as her beach club balconies and side boarding platforms - an engineering first that transformed the way an owner could access and the water.
