The 161-foot GALLANT LADY, with an aluminum hull and composite superstructure, is the definition of casual elegance. Long oval windows create a distinctive profile and dramatic interior features. Exquisite control of proportion and line maintains harmony between the four decks. The hallmark of her design is the inspired flow throughout her rooms and decks, and the harmonious relationship of space. An entrance salon welcomes all with gracious informality; a single staircase transports guests from the grandeur of the foyer to the intimacy of the sun deck lounge. The yacht’s traffic flow is unique; two separate stair towers connect three decks, as does the interior crew stairs. Outside, discontinuous stairways link the exterior spaces from stern to crow’s nest, moving traffic both fore and aft.
Among the most detailed and beautiful interiors seen in yachts of similar stature, GALLANT LADY earned a prize at Showboats International Award for Best Motor Yacht Interior. This was a well-deserved honor, witnessed in the deep, satin-finished African mahogany used throughout her interior, which showcases joinery, inlays, and signature three-dimensional panels. Most of the stonework is granite, which adds beautiful color and greater versatility.
GALLANT LADY delivers the ultimate in quiet, vibration-free cruising. To accommodate her owner’s request for close-in intracoastal cruising, she has a mere 6-foot, 10-inch draft and is capable of extraordinary beach access for a yacht of this size. To ensure the peacefulness of the four suites, their floors and walls are suspended from the yacht’s structural frame on special vibration-absorbing mounts. Sound is further dampened through high-tech construction techniques that employ a sandwich of acoustic materials. The padded-silk wall coverings above the mahogany chair rail are the final strategic element, soaking up any last traces of ambient noise. The curved wall at the back of the stair column not only looks beautiful, but cutting-edge materials beneath the silk upholstery absorb noise that might otherwise travel between decks. She combines the best of new technology and traditional beauty, providing an unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to experience the aptly named GALLANT LADY.
