The 44,7 m / 147 ft Vitters sailing yacht Lady B has been awarded with a Judge’s Commendation at the World Superyacht Awards Gala in Londen last weekend. The Dubois desiged Vitters built Lady B yacht has a spectacular interior from Rhoades Young and was one of the winners in the category “best sailing yachts 30-45m”.
Director Louis Hamming is honored: “We consider the Lady B yacht as a perfect example of a modern performance-cruising sloop. We are proud to be able to deliver head turning sailing yachts. With her light interior characterized by a curved wall from aft to front – cleverly disguising the keel box – she offers the comfort and feel of a luxurious beach house. Her lifting keel and rigging and sailplan however, are ingredients for spectacular sailing capabilities.”
Some previous award winning superyachts also built by Vitters Shipyard in The Netherlands are sailing yacht Nirvana, Mystère, Adèle and Ghost.
