One of the Dutch built yachts currently active worldwide is the 29 years old lady MY LADY.

She was built in 1994 by Scheepswerf Hakvoort at Monnickendam, Netherlands  originally as BOLD BUCCLEUGH but was renamed LADY MARINA for Sergio Mantegazza who is the successful owner of the widely recognized travel group, Group Voyagers, and the associated brands Globus and Cosmos. Designed by the iconic Diana Yacht Design,  the yacht stands as a symbol of elegance and craftsmanship in the yachting world.

In 1998 she was sold and renamed as LADY M for 2 years where she was sold and renamed again as LADY M II homeported at Majuro, Marshall Islands (MHL) of which she was seen at Malta too.
