Vitters latest superyacht Lady B
On 27th of March 2010 Vitters launched the 44.70 metre sloop Lady B. Lady B combines exceptionally high performance levels with superlative comfort. Following on from the success of previous fast cruisers, Vitters again installed high quality technical equipment and a wide range of innovations without compromising on premium standards of onboard luxury.
Lady B was designed by Dubois Naval Architects, which achieved an excellent blend of naval architecture and ergonomics in order to offer fast speeds, state-of-the-art technology and cutting edge styling. Her slim profile features a single-level superstructure, which keeps weight low and reduces windage.
She is being constructed in aluminium and will have a high aspect ratio rig with carbon mast and furling boom. Lady B will be equipped with PBO standing rigging to enhance performance. Her compact lifting keel system generates a variable draught from a minimum depth of four metres to a maximum depth of six. This will give her excellent speed.
Rhoades Young’s interior design provides for a clean and fresh ambiance, as an emphasis on open space and light generates a feeling of exceptional space below decks. This is most evident in the huge split-level upper and lower salons and dining area, where natural sunlight floods through large windows sculpted into the upper salon sides. Oiled teak steps lead through wide sliding glass doors into an expansive cockpit area with a fixed bimini shade.
Lady B features twin cockpits, allowing direct access to the upper salon through the main cockpit and private access from the aft cockpit to the owner’s area. The full beam owner’s stateroom aft comprises a generous split level cabin with lounging area and a large bathroom. The adjacent owner’s study can be converted to a third guest cabin thanks to the use of sliding walls. The two guest cabins can be used in twin or double configurations. Spacious crew quarters are located further forward and feature a galley of commercial specifications, a comfortable crew mess and up to six berths.
After stepping of the mast and extensive seatrials Lady B will leave for her maiden voyage.
