Mega Yacht Lady M

Mega Yacht Lady M

This weekend, the motor yacht Lady M visited the area.  This 1994 Dutch-built yacht from Belize is 164′ long.  According to several websites, you can spend $180,000 to use her for 1 week.   There were rumors that Lady M belonged to Ringo Starr, which the paper said was not true, but others say is correct.  Listening to the Captain on the shipping channel they did quite a bit of touring in the islands and after spending the evening docked at Frink Park, they left, escorted out by a water spouting Clayton Rescue Fire Boat toward Carleton Island then to Kingston to spend the night.  While in the area, guests visited a home on Round Island and a small Clayton contingent including the Mayor and people from the museum went aboard the yacht for a private tour and party.  As always, all of our pictures are clickable to enlarge and many are also on Flickr.  Please leave a comment if you spot Lady M in her travels.

    We were happy to see the Lady M out in front of Bite on the Beach on the Island of Roatan in West Bay. Lord Ashcroft came ashore but we must admit we were hoping it was Ringo Star. We met a couple of the crew who were perfectly charming. The “Lord” is lucky to have such a nice crew.

  2. Garry Smith Says:

    The lord himself is a pleasant person to talk to as well as we did in Curacao

    Lady M arrived in Puerto Banus, last week and was still there when we left today, looks very much like Lady Hiya who usually resides in the port.

    I saw Lady M in Hamburg Germany last Tuesday, damn that is a big boat

  11. Maureen Says:

    We say the Lady M in Newport, but not sure it’s the same yatch. The one we saw had the same name on the port side of the yatch, but the back of the boat has steps opening up from dock level to the 1st living area. The staff was cleaning the inside on Monday and on Tuesday the outside was getting scrubbed. We watched from a very nice restaurant called The Port Grill.

    Just had drinks dockside of the Lady M on Saturday September 15 in Newport, R.I. . There were a few deckhands cleaning things up around the ship and taking out a bit of trash, etc. but no sign of any passengers or anyone enjoying the weather on the decks. Trying to get more information about who owns her or even who may have owned her in the past. Beautiful ship!

    Observed a mega yacht on June 5, 2013 with the name LADY M entering Lake St Clair from the St Clair River. But, it is not the same yacht pictured in any photos I’ve seen on the web. Is she new?

  21. Ask the Boater Says:

    @ Robt Csongedi,
    Do you have a photo?


    I watched the Lady M II sail through the locks at the Canso Canal in the Strait of Canso in Nova Scotia Canada on June 12, 2013. I am trying to determine if she is indeed an entirely different ship from the Lady M. Can someone clarify this for me? Magnificent to watch by the way.
