Anyone familiar with Gibraltar will be used to seeing the procession of the world’s finest superyachts calling into the marina at Ocean Village. As well as offering boat owners several unique advantages (such as no VAT on boat sales and Red Ensign Cat 1 status) Gibraltar also boasts tax free fuel making it easily the cheapest place to refil on the Med.
But last week we were treated to a real treat when top lovely ladies moored side by side. To the left in the above picture is ‘Lady Sheridan’ and to the right ‘Lady Marina’.
The Lady Sheridan is a 58m Abeking and Rassmussen motor yacht (built 2007) designed to offer all the state of the art technology in fantastic comfort – such as an integrated audio-visual system that serves all four decks. More here
The Lady Marina is a 64m Feadship built in 1999 able to cruise at 16 knots. Owner, Sergio Mantegazza, a self-made Swiss billionaire (worth more than $2 billion, thanks to the international travel firm Globus), enjoys his yacht so much that he opened her decks to Hola! magazine about two years ago for a nine-page story.
