LADY S wins at 2020 World Superyacht Awards

Published 13 November 2020

Burgess New Construction does it again.

The 93m Feadship  LADY S has triumphed at the 2020 World Superyacht Awards in the Displacement Motor Yacht 2,000GT - 4,999GT category. Warding off fierce competition, this accolade celebrates the fine craftsmanship, superior engineering and masterful design work from all involved.

Her build was painstakingly project managed and overseen by the Burgess New Construction (BNC) and Burgess Commercial teams over the course of five years, working hand in hand with her visionary owners from conception to delivery and through into operation. She is a direct reflection of the work of a truly masterful team of designers, builders and project managers.  

The 15 th annual World Superyacht Awards, held remotely on Friday 13 November paid tribute to the continued hard work, innovation and robustness of the superyacht industry during what has been an unprecedented year.

‘This was an incredibly challenging project,' says Rory Boyle , naval architect and project manager with Burgess New Construction . 'The client set the bar extremely high in so many respects, but it has resulted in a standout and now, award winning yacht. We would like to extend our congratulations to all involved, and especially the owners for their pioneering vision.'

Speaking from the WSA, the judges based their decision on LADY S’ 'radical shapes and complex engineering, it is, in the judges view, a very special yacht!’

1744529_lady-s_-13

'The whole yacht was built around the double height IMAX cinema which also incorporates Dolby Atmos sound, the first on any yacht. There isn't a cubic centimetre of this yacht that hasn't been considered and reconsidered, solutions applied and then optimised to make this happen.'

Other stand-out features include a 201" Porsche-designed C'Seed TV screen that rotates, folds and withdraws into the deck - another first for any yacht.

The extraordinary helideck

But for Rory, in common with the rest of the Burgess team, LADY S is not just an outstanding - indeed award winning - yacht. She is the product of a multitude of challenges overcome through commercial and technical knowledge by an industry leading team of experts who have spent a considerable span of their lives working towards this result.

‘This was truly an all-encompassing Burgess project’ says Peter Brown , Senior Partner, ‘BNC and the Burgess Commercial teams worked seamlessly together from the very start researching the various design and build options with the owner, to whom enormous credit is due for choosing such an adventurous and visionary path. We are incredibly proud of the result.’

Huge congratulations must go to her amazing owners, to Feadship, Michael Leach Design, Reymond Langton Design, Richard Hein, LADY S Captain, the crew and all the other members of the team involved to bring this project to life.

Burgess is extremely proud to have played such a central role in such an extraordinary team on such a special yacht. 

We are extremely proud to have been involved with the build of this iconic yacht

93m Feadship charter yacht ‘Lady S’ with IMAX theatre nearing completion

By Katia Damborsky   1 April 2019

After leaving Feadship’s facilities in Amsterdam on Wednesday, the 93m/305ft superyacht ‘Lady S’ set out for sea trials this morning.  

Heading out for the first time on February 7, Lady S is completing another round of sea trials in the North Sea. Following their completion, the Feadship-built superyacht will be delivered to her owner and then go on to spend the summer season chartering in the Mediterranean .

With her cutting-edge technology, stellar selection of facilities and Feadship pedigree, Lady S is expected to become one of the best-equipped superyachts for charter in the world.

lady s yacht owner

The superyacht was captured cruising through the canals of IJmuiden, in North Holland, showing off her Michael Leach-designed exterior. In spite of her sheer volume, the British-based design studio has maintained a sleek and elegant profile, with long glazed sections, solid steel bulwarks and delicately curving lines penned in her superstructure.

While little is known about the interiors of the superyacht, they have been created by Reymond Langton Design and are expected to reflect a contemporary jewellery box, with chandeliers dripping with crystals and bright whites offset by sky blue.

In spite of her sheer volume, Michael Leach has maintained a sleek and elegant profile.

Lady S heading out for sea trials

Charter guests are sure to love cruising around Mediterranean hotspots such as Italy and the South of France on board the superyacht. She boasts a number of stand-out features, including a certified helipad that can double as a basketball court, and a duplex IMAX cinema for the ultimate entertainment experience.

What’s more, guests can enjoy a spacious pool on the main deck aft, complete with a glass bottom and separate shaded and sunning zones.

Lady S charter yacht profile shot of bow

Upon delivery, Lady S will rank in the top sixty in the World’s Top 100 Superyachts, and is currently the largest Feadship yacht ever built to be publicly available for private yacht charters .

She is also set to become the first Feadship superyacht to be completed at the shipbuilder's new facilities in Amsterdam, which cater specifically to new builds and refits of yachts measuring over 160 metres.

If you would like to be among the first to charter this stunning superyacht, please get in touch with your preferred yacht charter broker .

She boasts a combination of amenities unseen on other luxury superyachts, including a fully certified EC 155 helipad, a glass-bottomed swimming pool, a sports court, a hammam with an ice plunge pool, and the largest hidden outdoor C SEED TV in the world at 201”. And she’s got a crew of 31 to cater to your every whim.

Interior design & engineering

When you step on board the LADY S yacht, you’ll be dazzled by her huge sparkling crystal chandeliers and light, white interior. The Reymond Langton Design interior feels like “a contemporary jewellery box”, which is complemented by the use of rare materials sourced from around the world.

LADY S accommodates 12 guests across seven cabins. The extremely spacious master suite includes an office and balcony and is surrounded by windows for breathtaking views. The rest of the party is spread across two VIP staterooms, two doubles and two cabins.

Wherever you sit, you’ll enjoy fabulous views through large windows, with fold-out balconies to get you closer to the ocean.

Yacht facilities & entertainment

There’s no shortage of entertainment options during your LADY S yacht charter. For starters, she’s got the largest hidden outdoor C SEED TV in the world, measuring 201”. Her IMAX Dolby theatre was the first to be installed on a superyacht and comes with two viewing platforms.

On the bridge deck of the LADY S motor yacht, you’ll find a glass-bottomed swimming pool with a swim-up bar and a circular shower, with a spa pool aft. It’s flanked by plenty of casual seating for cocktails or snacks, but if you prefer a more formal setting, you can head indoors to the dining room that seats 12.

When night comes, you can make your way over to the bar and create your very own nightclub. With an interactive dance floor and wall, you’ll be throwing shapes until the early hours.

The beach club on the LADY S yacht is the perfect place for some much-needed rest time; you can sweat it out in the hammam before jumping into the ice plunge pool and enjoying a massage.

Another unusual feature of LADY S is her sports court, where you can play a range of games, including basketball, football and badminton. You can also practice your swing with her golf tee and simulator or keep up with your fitness regime in her large gym with panoramic views.

Toys and Crew

The LADY S yacht carries a myriad of aquatic toys for a fun-filled charter. Chase the adrenaline on WaveRunners, waterskis, surfboards, or the flyboard and e-Foil board, or zoom into the sea on the inflatable 15m slide. With a selection of towable inflatables, and toys like Seabobs, kayaks and SUPs, there’s no shortage of ways to stay entertained. You could even try to catch your supper with the fishing gear.

  • IMAX Dolby theatre
  • Beach club with hammam and ice plunge pool
  • Interactive dance floor and wall
  • Sports court, featuring volleyball, basketball, football, badminton and a golf tee and simulator

A Brief History of Superyachts

And how they explain the world..

Tim Murphy January+February 2024 Issue

When the US targeted Russia’s oligarchs after the invasion of Ukraine, the trail of assets kept leading to our own backyard. Not only had our nation become a haven for shady foreign money, but we were also incubating a familiar class of yacht-owning, industry-dominating, resource-extracting billionaires. In the  January + February 2024  issue of our magazine, we investigate the rise of American Oligarchy—and what it means for the rest of us. You can read all the pieces  here .

The luxury yacht may be the world’s most exclusive form of transportation. But there are only a hundred-some that meet the definition of a gigayacht—a pleasure craft 295 feet or longer. Their opaque ownership records offer a glimpse of modern wealth and power: Over two dozen are linked to Gulf royals, businessmen, or states, and 20 to citizens (past or current) of the former Soviet Union. At least 23 have reportedly belonged to Americans, including founders of Microsoft, Netscape, Amazon, WhatsApp, and Snapchat. The widow of a German retailer who thrived under Hitler owned one; a UK tax exile and a Formula 1 dad still do. Yugoslav strongman Tito’s old yacht makes the list; Dominican dictator Trujillo’s does too. Take a cruise through the history of the vessels and their—somewhat—more modest sister ships.

The bourgeois charm of Siberia's oil capital

lady s yacht owner

If you’re driving west across Russia from the Pacific Ocean, the first thing that you notice upon entering the city of Tyumen is the McDonalds. Tyumen has long been one of the only Siberian cities with a McDonalds restaurant. Although the fast-food giant has plans to open locations in nearby Novosibirsk and other regional cities, Siberia still contains one of the longest distances on earth outside of Africa where you can remain on a major highway and not see a McDonalds. Until you reach Tyumen, that is.

A stop in Tyumen provides an interesting glimpse into how modern Russia’s oil revenue has influenced Siberia’s oldest Russian city. Tyumen is a great stopover point on the Trans-Siberian Railroad and a short ride from Yekaterinburg (five hours) or Tobolsk (four hours).

In the 16th century, Russia started expanding eastward into parts of Central Asia ruled by the Tatars, an Islamic people who still live thoughout Russia. A band of Cossacks wrested control of Tyumen from the Tatars in 1580. Six years later, Russians established a fort in Tyumen on the Tura River.

For centuries, Tyumen vied with the nearby city of Tobolsk—once the official capital of Siberia—for the prestige of the region’s most important city. Tyumen won in the end, when the Trans-Siberian Railroad bypassed Tobolsk and was routed through this now oil-rich city.

Tyumen played an important role in Russian history during times of war. At the beginning of the Russian Civil War, the Bolshevik Red Army slowly pushed the White Army, commanded by Admiral Alexander Kolchak, into Siberia. Kolchak and his anti-Bolshevik forces holed up in Tyumen until the Red Army overtook them in January of 1918.

During the Second World War, many Russian industries were moved away from the front to Siberian cities. Tyumen had already become an industrial capital during the early Soviet era, and the city became an ideal spot to relocate Russia’s western factories. As Nazi forces approached Russia in 1941, the embalmed body of Vladimir Lenin was sent from the Lenin Mausoleum in Moscow’s Red Square by train to the Tyumen State Agricultural Academy for safekeeping. In 1945, Lenin’s body was shipped back to Moscow.

Some of the factories relocated to Tyumen during wartime remained in the city. The discovery of oil in the region catapulted Siberia’s oldest Russian settlement to further prosperity. Modern Tyumen is a vibrant city with a number of universities and a revamped center well-suited for exploration by foot.

Start your walking tour around central Tyumen on Ulitsa Respubliki. The city’s main drag has fine pedestrian walkways and leads wanderers past an impressive collection of tsarist-era buildings that recall Tyumen’s importance in the beginning of Russia’s colonization of Siberia.

From the southeastern end of Ul. Respubliki, head north toward the Tura River and take a brief side trip onto Ul. Ordzhonikidze to visit the Fine Arts Museum (47 Ul. Ordzhonikidze) which houses exhibits of classical Russian and Soviet art as well as traditional bone carving and works produced by the native people who live in the far north of Tyumen Oblast.

Back on Ul. Respubliki, you’ll soon see the city’s requisite Lenin statue by the local government buildings. A block away, opposite Lenin, is Tyumen’s city park, a delightful place to walk or hop on one of its amusement rides.

Most Siberian cities developed under the watchful eyes of the atheist Soviet regime and churches are usually not Siberia’s strongpoint. But this isn’t true in four-centuries-old Tyumen. Strolling up Ul. Respubliki, you’ll soon come to the Church of the Saviour (41 Ul. Lenina) and the Znamensky Cathedral (13 Ul. Semakova). Each of these stunning Baroque-influenced churches are located right off Ul. Respubliki and were built in the late 18th century.

Tyumen is also famous for its historic wooden houses. Heading further up Ul. Respubliki, stop to wander around some of the side streets and snap photos of these ornate wooden structures which provide a glimpse back in time. Near the Tura River, you’ll pass a civil war monument in remembrance of the Tyumen natives who died fighting the White Army and the Tyumen State Agricultural Academy (7 Ul. Respubliki) an impressive building in its own right where Lenin was stored during the Second World War.

Near the end of Ul. Respubliki, take a walk over the Tura River on the Lover’s Bridge, a suspension bridge open to foot traffic only that has become one of Tyumen’s iconic sights. The other side of the river is a great place to see more of Tyumen’s signature wooden houses as well as take in the churches scattered around the city center.

Save the best for last and visit the Trinity Monastery (10 Ul. Kommunisticheskaya) at the end of Ul. Respubliki. A white wall surrounds the monastery, giving it the appearance of a mini-kremlin, and the golden onion domes of the 18th century churches within should not be missed.

Although navigating Tyumen is straightforward enough, the St. Petersburg-based travel company OSTWEST can arrange a city tour in Tyumen and the surrounding countryside.
