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.

    Report just in that Lady M is in fact spending the night in Kingston and then leaving tomorrow for Port Dalhousie in St Catherines, Ontario at the entrance to the Welland Canal. On the way they plan to cruise the Adolphus Reach North Channel west of Kingston. Be on the lookout and send us an update or a picture!!

  5. Al Humphreys Says:

    Yes……it is berthed in Port Dalhousie in St. Catharines on Tues 19th.

  6. Diane Grabo Says:

    This is old news now, but on August 16th a party of 10 family/friends were invited aboard the Lady M for a short cruise with cocktails and a tour from the TI bridge to Clayton. The invitation occurred because we raised the Union Jack (apparently in the correct orientation) at the camp we rented as a courtesy when the yacht was meandering upriver. The owner (Michael – no last name offered) and his guests were very pleasant. Not sure why they kept their identity a secret but they did treat us royally.

  7. Laurie Says:

    August 20-evening-Lady M still docked at the Yacht Club in Port Dalhousie. She is attracting a lot of attention from the plethora of evening pier walkers but apart from one or two crew, there seems to be very little activity aboard this evening. A beautiful sight at the marina.

    We saw her at Toronto’s Harbourfront on Friday, as well. We were staying at the Radisson Hotel and had a great view of her arrival from our room. What a beauty, and a positive ending to our visit despite the slaughter we Yankee fans suffered from the bats of the Blue Jays the night before!

  15. Angela A Says:

    If I had to place a bet, I would say it’s British tycoon Michael Ashcroft on the Lady M. Read this link to learn more about Mr. Ashcroft and see what you think:

    We were at the Harbourfront in Nanaimo today and spotted this amazing
    “Lady”. No action anywhere near it!

    One of my students here in Nanaimo BC went down to see the yacht here in Nanaimo, said the crew were very friendly but of course wouldn’t confirm the yacht belongs to either Lord Ashcroft or Ringo Starr

  126. charylb Says:

  128. Popeye The Sailor Says:

    The Lady M is docked at the Golden Nugget marina (formally Trump Marina) in Atlantic City, N.J.

  129. judy Says:

    I hardly think that The Lady M (as magnifecant as she is) could get from Nanaimo, BC, Canada to New Jersey in one day. Are there 2 Lady M’s

  130. judy Says:

    I believe that it was the “Lady M II” that was in Victoria, Vancouver and Nanaimo, British Columbia. And The “Lady M” that is in New Jersey.

  131. Justin Says:

    Lady m 2 is in namaimo.

  132. judy Says:

    Therefore, there must also be a Lady M,
    and it is she who is in New Jersey.
    Thank you Justin.

  133. Karen Says:

    Lady M is in Campbell River as Comox Harbour was too small

  138. Jo-Ann Says:

    Lady M is at our marina ….Greenwich Bay in RI. What a BEAUTIFUL boat!!!

  139. Dan Says:

    Lady m is relaxing in Newport rhode island

  140. Deedee Says:

    I know this boat SAYS it’s the Lady M in the photos, but this exact boat as seen in photos above is now called Lady M II and is on the west coast of Canada. I have sent in photos showing it’s the same boat with the slightly different name to this site to prove it.

    There are 3 other Lady M’s known to me, one is a 104′ from NZ, one is a 105′ from NLDs and one is a 164′ from NLDs which used to be called Lady Marina, if that is any help but the above exact boat is 164′ and is currently on the west coast and called Lady M II, with the registry change I mentioned above, from Belize to Jaluit, Marshall Islands.

    If the spotters on the east coast could take photos of their Lady M and compare them to the photos above to match up superstructure and hull design points then we could either stop the confusion or open a deeper mystery.

  141. Jan D. Says:

    Lady M is in Edgartown Harbor for the fireworks. Was on the schooner Alabama which was anchored right in front of her.

  175. V Says:

    Seen Lady M in Tri-Cities Washington Sept 24
    She is so beautiful, never seen anything like that
    In real life. But thank god there is a first for
    Everything :)

  176. Dwayne Says:

    She made it as far up the Columbia River as Kennewick (330 miles from the mouth of the river) this weekend and passed a group of us sail racing a few miles south of there. We asked the skipper via VHF how far up the river they were going and he said he wasn’t sure. Of note: when we asked what her displacement was he said the question was too technical???? He didn’t know.

  177. Marc Wiesner Says:

    Saw Lady M on the snake river going up stream from Ice Harbor dam. Passed us while we were fishing.

  178. Marc Wiesner Says:

    Saw the Lady M (9-25) going up stream from Ice Harbor Dam on the Snake River in Wa.State. We were fishing at the time and I thought, what a catch that would be.

  179. Eli Says:

    Just saw her berthed at Clarkston, WA, right on the Idaho border- almost as far upstream as she can go. I think it is possibly the largest private vessel ever to come clear up here but I’m not sure of that.

  180. Jeanine Says:

    Currently Docked in Clarkston Washington……………

  181. Kay Anderson Says:

    The Lady M was in Lewiston Idaho at the Port of Clarkston today. She is supposed to be here till Wednesday.

  182. Tony Anderson Says:

    What a priveledge to see such a wonderful super boat at the furtherest inland port of the northwest. Makes all our fishing boats seem insignificant

  183. cassie winegeart Says:

    im in the usa i live in a small town called clarkston wa and i just seen lady m docked at one of our docks

  184. Harry Krebs Says:

    Lady M II was at the Port of Clarkston, Washington today. This is on the Snake River, at the Idaho and Washington border, well inland.

  185. Kammy Cox Says:

    Lady M II is now docked in Clarkston WA – on the Snake River – Been here for few days. Heard they took Helicopter ride up through Hells Canyon. Not sure who’s on board. All very hush hush.

  186. Kammy Cox Says:

    9/29/11 – NOW in Clarkston WA – docked on the Snake River – Been here for few days!

  187. David and Jacki Says:

    September 30, 2011: Still berthed in Clarkston Washington, 400plus miles from the Pacific Ocean. This is the one of the farthest inland seaports in the states. They must be here for the best hunting and fishing in the lower U.S. Right now it’s prime time hunting for Elk, Deer, Bear, Big horn sheep in Idaho.

  188. Nicky Says:

    Just spotted Lady M in Port of Clarkston! Amazing!

    Lady M spotted in Clarkston WA/Lewistion ID. It was confused for the Yellow Sub.

  190. Andy Says:

    Lady M II just sailed past my office, which is on the Willamette River under the St. Johns bridge. Perhaps she’ll be getting some work done at the Vigor shipyards. Or maybe just stopping by to dring some local beer!

  191. Dan Distler Says:

    Lady M II is currently docked alongside the Stern-wheeler “Oregon” Maritime Museum on the Willamette River in downtown Portland, Oregon. She is a beautiful ship.

  192. Dan M Says:

    Oct 9, Sunday morning, we have the Lady M sitting in the Astoria (Oregon) anchorage near the mouth of the Columbia River.

  193. KT Says:

    Anchored in front of Astoria, Oregon for the last few days.

  194. Arista Split Says:

    M is a very nice mega yacht, but the two coolest ones i personally have seen is the Lady Mouroa (I am not sure how to spell the name) it is owned by a lady who used to be married to a Saudi prins! The second one was one of the yachts from Abramovic which actually anchored up in viewing distance from my Balcony!

  199. Ed Moulder Says:

    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.

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

  208. jörgen Sweden Says:

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

  209. 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.

  210. JohnAnderson Says:

    Lady M was docked for the past 2 summers in Greenwich Bay, Warwick, Rhode Island.
    This summer it moved to Pier/Restaurant/Private Club 41~ North, Newport, Rhode Island.

  212. Dennis Beaudoin Says:

    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!

  218. Robt Csongedi Says:

    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?

  219. 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.
