£47m superyacht spotted touring the UK

A 223-ft superyacht estimated to be worth around £47m has been spotted off the coast of the Isle of Wight in recent days.

According to reports, the affectionately named ‘Lady Christine’ is owned by Lord Irvine Laidlaw – a Scottish yacht enthusiast and former member of the House of Lords who also acts a private investor for Portsmouth-based Ben Ainslie Racing.

The custom-built vessel, which was designed and built by yachtbuilder Feadship in 2010, spans a private cinema room, Jacuzzis, a gym space, an on-deck infinity pool and a small garage designed to house smaller boats, reports suggest.

The superyacht’s well-appointed interior is split into five luxurious cabins, which include a bespoke master suite, three double cabins and one twin cabin.

A circular motif characterises the plush interior, which features wood-panelled vintage armchairs and floor-to-ceiling, panoramic windows in some rooms.

Lady Christine – which famously won this year’s Round the Island Race, was spotted just off the northern coast of the Isle of Wight, near Cowes, last weekend.
