GALLANT LADY is the eighth Feadship built for her owner. Being the first Feadship launched under the Royal DeVries designation as well as the first Feadship built with an interior utilizing lightweight aircraft technology to ensure her shallow draft, this yacht represents aesthetic and technical achievements second to none. GALLANT LADY is an eco-friendly yacht incorporating advanced innovations including the environmentally safe Rochem bio-reactive waste sewage treatment plant. Her owner is a founding member of the Seakeeper’s Society and the GALLANT LADY was built to reflect their longstanding commitment to the ocean environment.
Designed by her owner, the GALLANT LADY’s signature vertical windows, stacked decks and raked bow are accented with the debut of a three dimensional wave-like scrollwork and “F” signature on the bow. A recurring “X” theme can be found throughout the yacht and appears in design details as fine as the air conditioning vents or as grand as her polished stainless steel pillars.
Unique to a yacht of her size and quality, the shallow draft greatly increases her cruising capabilities.
The rich interior influenced by Eighteenth and Nineteenth century French and Italian antiques showcases beautiful woods ranging from black walnut, sycamore, eucalyptus and myrtle burl. Stunning glasswork artfully combined with seventeen granites and marbles create the feel of romantic elegance. Custom-made Edward Fields carpets and silk panels accentuate luxurious textures throughout the yacht.
The GALLANT LADY accommodates ten guests in five staterooms.
The MAIN SALON defines classic elegance. A palette of black walnut, myrtle burl and eucalyptus complement rich fabrics and classic-styled furniture. The two handmade Italian coffee tables took more than four months to complete and each of these one-of-a-kind pieces contain many of the seventeen precious stones utilized throughout the yacht. Day or night the eight large windows create a spacious ambiance.
Moving forward to the MAIN FOYER there is a spectacular four-person circular elevator comprised of a monolithic pane of glass framed in polished stainless. Beautiful marble inlays custom cut in Holland were used to create a Koi pond motif on the elevator floor. The elevator itself required more than a year to complete.
Starboard of the elevator is a dramatic floating-spiral staircase spanning two decks and taking full advantage of the GALLANT LADY’s vertical windows.
Forward of the elevator are two identical DAYHEADS featuring Blue Siena and Rosso Verona marbles accented with beautiful silk panels.
Continuing forward, seven raised steps lead to a DINING SALON offering spectacular panoramic views. An opulent round myrtle burl table easily extends to accommodate up to fourteen guests. Azul Aran granite window sills complement myrtle burl and black walnut cabinetry. Custom built floor-to-ceiling cabinets conceal a full complement of Pickard china, Waterford crystal and Christofle cutlery. A custom made and beautifully inlayed Edward Fields carpet adorns the floor.
Of special interest beneath the Dining Salon is one of Feadship’s most significant technological achievements. Concealed therein is a state-of-the-art ducted air conditioning system once reserved for the abundant space of deep full-displacement hull. A massive central air conditioning plant remains hidden under the semi-raised floor with large ducts incorporated into the ship’s structure. While previous designs would incorporate chilled-water air handlers in perimeter cabinetry, this innovative design permits the induction of cooled air through a decorative grill spanning the entire length of wall with warm-air returns discreetly concealed in the Dining Salon’s tray ceiling. This breakthrough design permitted window lines to be lowered significantly with an equally dramatic increase in spaciousness and view.
The GALLEY is conveniently located aft of the Dining Salon. Along with the spacious DINING SALON PANTRY and MAIN SALON PANTRY, these areas provide a streamlined approach for service to guests in either the Dining Salon or aft Main Salon. There are professional quality refrigerators and freezers, ample prep areas, and storage for crew to have a proper work environment. The pantries have granite and marbles throughout, along with beautiful woodwork creating a feeling of elegance.
The AFT MAIN DECK serves as the GALLANT LADY’s primary al fresco dining area with comfortable table seating for ten guests. A settee, small table and two chairs provide additional seating. Staircases on port and starboard provide direct access to the RECREATION PLATFORM and Lazarette.
OWNER’s DECK (second deck amidship aft): For the utmost in privacy, the OWNER’s FOYER has two sets of double doors.
The full-beam OWNER’s STATEROOM is bright, radiant and the epitome of luxurious comfort. Fluted columns and curvaceous floor-to-ceiling doors generate a classic ambiance with giant windows bathing a king-size bed in natural light. The Owner’s Stateroom is a spectacular private space.
The massive interior volume of GALLANT LADY is showcased in the OWNER’s BATHROOM area. These 125 square meters (408 square feet) of space are dedicated to his and her toilets, bidets, dressing areas and wardrobes. A walk-in shower and solarium with pantry complete the space. Designed to create a warm and mellow ambiance, Sunshine marble with accents and inlays of Afyon and Blue Siena are used. The etched shower doors and walls have an “Orioles in Oleander” theme which was custom designed for the area. Variable controls allow the illumination of glass art to be adjusted for color and brightness.
An even finer vista is provided from the Owner’s private shaded AFT DECK area, which incorporates a spa pool and dining area.
Instead of the wheelhouse above the Dining Salon, GALLANT LADY has an intriguing CLUB LOUNGE forward, which together with the Owner’s Stateroom aft creates a true OWNER’s DECK. Large windows, a high-back blue leather settee and a gentleman’s bar provide an ideal retreat to relax and admire the view. A central table with concealed television transforms the area into a perfect retreat for breakfast or a game of chess.
The OWNER’s DECK PANTRY and CAPTAIN’s CABIN are just portside and aft of the Club Lounge area. The Captain’s Cabin and bathroom are fitted with White Calcutta marble with Verde Giada accents. The cabin includes a desk, ensuite shower, remote engine room alarm panel and B & G HS-2000 weather monitoring system.
With an elevated settee, the Wheelhouse is spacious enough to accommodate guests observing the running of the yacht. The bridge includes two Recaro Captain’s chairs and a world class complement of navigational and electronic equipment.
Aft is the SHIP’s OFFICE containing ample work space.
The SUN DECK holds a 20’ Nautica tender as well as cantilevered wing platforms to port and starboard. This deck area also doubles as a spacious guest area for sunbathing or viewing the stars.
FLYBRIDGE / CROW’s NEST:
Located atop the Wheelhouse, this semi-enclosed flybridge has an ingenious window arrangement which can be adapted to any wind condition. There is port and starboard access to spacious observation wings which can be utilized by the Captain for enhanced visibility while maneuvering.
Guests are treated royally onboard GALLANT LADY, with a fabulous GUEST FOYER on the lower deck opening into the four spacious GUEST STATEROOMS. Her two queen and two twin guest staterooms are appointed with rich fabrics, handsome cabinetry crafted with three exotic woods and beautiful Giallo Reale, Emparador and White Callacatta marbles. Entertainment electronics are artfully concealed, and the bathrooms are of unprecedented size for any yacht. The bathrooms include custom-etched glasswork shower doors in “Humming Birds in Tulip Tree” and “Macaws & Shefelera” designs.
In addition to the Captain’s Cabin aft of the Club Lounge, there is berthing for ten crew members in five twin CREW CABINS forward of the engine room. Each cabin is outfitted with a full head, shower, sycamore cabinetry, light green Corian countertops and individual drop-down DVD players with headsets for each bunk. The area contains a spacious CREW LOUNGE with L-shaped settee.
The LAUNDRY area is well designed with two sets of washers and dryers and ample counter workspace.
The technically advanced ENGINE ROOM is located at the center of the lower deck. This well- designed multi-level space is exceptionally well-lit, fully air conditioned and visible to the air conditioned CONTROL ROOM which is adjacent starboard and forward.
