Since 1953 the Lazzara family has founded, fostered, sold, and founded again many great yacht companies (Columbia, Gulfstar, Lazzara) and now Team Lazzara, a boutique yacht sales company focused on 50′-150′ motor yachts. As a 3rd generation builder I’ve done it all, from lamination to listings. Follow me on my many networks below. Sign up for our Ocean Of News email Newsletter – “Your Everyday Boat Show”
At a reported cost of $100 million the new 305′ Superyacht from Feadship built for NFL Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is just amazing to see. While outdone in length by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ new Superyacht the 357′ Bravo Eugenia , Lady S has a few features up her sleeve like the built in IMAX theater and huge aft helicopter pad. Lady S is certianly one of the premiere superyachts delivered this year.
It was an early morning start for the 93-metre Feadship Lady S on April 1 as she set out from our new yard in Amsterdam for her sea trials. Originally built at the Kaag location, Lady S was the first yacht to enter a dock that will welcome many more great Feadships in the years ahead.
This was the second time Lady S has been on the move, the first being her transfer from Kaag to Amsterdam several weeks ago. This involved a delicate and carefully planned operation along the various waterways and bridges to accommodate a 14-metre beam.
As our roving reporter Suzanne reports in her latest vlog below, the transportation team had to leverage on many years of experience of moving a pristine, freshly painted superyacht through narrow spaces with just centimetres to spare. It’s all pretty cool as you will see.
It’s fair to say that the captain and crew of Lady S found the sea trials much more fun as their powerful vessel was let off the leash for the first time on the open waters of the North Sea. As this image shows, she made for an impressive sight. [via Feadship]
