Lord Sugar’s yacht in the Solent

Last week’s story about the Giles Group trip on the Alison MacGregor around Southampton Docks and Hythe had an interesting follow up story! Just as we were returning to Hythe Marina, a very smart “Superyacht” was seen moving up Southampton Water into the Port area, between two tugs.

The picture I took of this Superyacht, called the “Lady A”, was spotted on FlickR by Charl van Rooy, Editor of the SuperYacht Times: he has supplied links to two stories that his magazine has published, explaining that this yacht, which is owned by Lord Sugar, had been sent to a shipyard in Portchester for a refit and a repaint, last September.

Obviously when the Lady A passed our launch, it was on a delivery journey after this refit, so that Lord Sugar could collect it, in its new colour scheme. The photo is as below:

There are some photos of the inside of the yacht in the articles quoted, in the SuperYacht Times magazine.
