Arguably one of the most iconic motor yachts on the water and superyacht royalty, this 105m statement of success was the most expensive superyacht in the world at the time of her launch, and the ninth largest.
Lady Moura was commissioned by an experienced owner who paid meticulous attention to every detail. Now, offered for sale by her original owner and on the market for the first time, Camper & Nicholsons invited us to Monaco to take a tour of this truly standout superyacht.
As her 24-carat-gold-plated name badge suggests, Lady Moura bears only the finest finishes, the most luxurious of lifestyle features, and exudes extravagance.
The vessel, which has served as a private family property, was built by Blohm & Voss to Lloyds Classification and delivered in 1991. This incredible yacht of 6,359GT underwent significant mechanical refits in 2018/19 and also has an advanced remote monitoring system installed, which allows for condition-based maintenance, real0time troubleshooting and support, enabling an extremely low operating expense for a yacht of her stature.
Lady Moura lead the way for many innovative developments in design. Her balconies, two off the beach club and two side boarding platforms, were an engineering first at the time of her launch and transformed the way an owner could access both the vessel and the water. Lady Moura has a phenomenal 8,000nm range, easily surpassing that of many modern superyachts regardless of their size.
Conceived specifically as a haven for the family to spend time together, but also to serve as a platform for select social engagements, Lady Moura dedicates one of her seven decks exclusively to family living. Along with the opulent full beam owner’s suite on this deck, are six cabins exclusively for use by family members, culminating in a total of 2,600sq.m of private chambers. Lady Moura can accommodate up to 26 guests in total and provides quarters for a complement of 74 crew – a highly desirable crew to guest ratio for a new owner seeking the ultimate levels of service and comfort.
Lady Moura’s resplendent interior was designed by the Italian-born Luigi Sturchio. From inviting lounges with deep cushioned sofas to regal dining rooms and palatial staterooms with en suites finished in marble, every aspect of the design uses indulgently tactile finishes.
Lady Moura boasts a helipad, movie theatre, DJ room, indoor pool, spa with sauna, gym, owner’s study and medical suites amongst her onboard amenities. She has two galleys, one for the owner and one for the crew, a bakery and separate owner/crew laundry facilities.
The beach club also deserves a special mention. Positioned midships with balconies both port and starboard, this lounge at the water’s edge allows for effortless disembarkation from the tenders and easy access to and from the ocean. In addition to this, Lady Moura has six hydraulic gangways, ensuring a safe and seamless transition from tender to mother ship in any sea condition.
Lady Moura is a unique purchase proposition and the significant position she holds in the timeline of launched superyachts has afforded her a status of superyacht royalty that is assured for years to come. Her new owner will not only be acquiring a superyacht of premium pedigree, but be continuing a legacy of luxury and splendour.
