Vitters launches the 45m ‘Lady B’...

Recent Launches

Designed by Ed Dubois’s team and featuring a Rhoades Young interior, she was pulled from her fit-out shed on March 27. And then moved by barge across the brackish Ijsselmeer and out into the tidal waters of the Waddenzee and the port of Harlingen, from where she will be rigged and sea-trialled.

APRIL 2010

Aluminium sloop Lady B features twin cockpits that allow direct access to the upper salon through the main cockpit and private access from the aft cockpit to the owner’s area. The full-beam owner’s stateroom aft is a split-level affair that includes lounging area and an extra-large bathroom. The adjacent owner’s study can be converted to a third guest cabin thanks to the use of sliding walls.
The two guest cabins can be used in twin or double configurations.
The crew quarters are located forward include commercial-spec galley, crew mess and up to six berths.
She will soon be united with her high-aspect-ratio rig with carbon mast, furling boom and PBO standing rigging. Her compact lift-keel will vary her draught from 4.1m (13ft 5in) to 6.1m (20ft).
