The 46.2-metre motor yacht Lady May has been sold in an in-house deal at Edmiston just two months after a change of central agency. Dirk Johnson represented the seller and Bruce Brakenhoff brought in the buyer.
Built of aluminium by Feadship in the Netherlands in 2014, Lady May was refitted in 2019, which included a full repaint. Her elegant exterior is by the late Ed Dubois, sporting a near-vertical bow and gently-sweeping sheer, while her contemporary, clean interior is by British studio RWD.
Accommodation is for a party of 10 in five cabins, with "expansive views" from the owner's main deck cabin, thanks in part to an area of glass in the bulwarks. Two twin and two double cabins are found on the lower deck. The broker described Lady May as "a class apart from any other yacht of her size", with a "radically different mast design" that enhances her sporty look.
The broker also pointed out the rotating saloon sole as one of Lady May's standout features, and that the vessel has "exceptionally large refrigeration capacity". A bar extends from the main saloon out onto the aft deck. White marble, stainless steel trim, Macassar ebony cabinets and bleached oak create a modern, "calming" interior.
Twin 1,900hp Caterpillar diesel engines give the 406GT yacht a cruising speed of 15 knots.
Lady May was asking $26,500,000.
