LADY J is a classic Palmer Johnson measuring 142’ (43m). She has undergone continual upgrades since her 1997 launch, the most notable in 2021, which brought new Caterpillar C32 engines and ZF transmissions. The yacht’s meticulous refit schedule has ensured she is kept in excellent condition. She is ready to exceed the expectations of her new owners. For someone looking for a yacht with charter potential, LADY J boasts an outstanding charter history with an excellent reputation and expectation for repeat guests. Her full suite of water toys, clever accommodation layout and vast deck spaces make her a versatile yacht for both private use and charter.
This 142’ tri-deck yacht was built with expert craftsmanship and extraordinary standards. As guests enter the main salon, they will notice the beautiful Cuban mahogany paneling that gives the space a warm and welcoming ambiance while natural and recessed lighting illuminates the room; this attention to detail is also carried out in the skylounge. A 10-person formal dining table is situated separately from the main salon for an intimate feel and features a built-in wine cabinet. LADY J’s furnishings offer a traditional feel that never goes out of style.
LADY J welcomes up to 12 guests in the comfort of five well-appointed staterooms. The full-beam master suite is an intimate haven dedicated to privacy and leisure. Upon entering the space through the owner’s office, you will find a desk, hanging lockers and a small drinks refrigerator. Continuing forward is the master stateroom featuring a king-size bed, large sofa and vanity. The space is timeless, with bookshelves and plenty of soft lighting. The marble guest foyer leads to LADY J’s four additional staterooms down a spiral staircase. The forward cabins are identical with twin berths and trundles. The guest cabin to starboard provides service access to the crew area. The other two identical cabins are located further aft, each with queen-size berths. LADY J’s five crew cabins welcome nine crewmembers onboard. The yacht’s stateroom layout is perfect for friends and multi-generational families.
The skylounge aft showcases an oversized deck with a table for 10 that welcomes comfortably shaded alfresco dining. Settees around the edge of the deck provide generous seating for enjoying cocktails before dinner, surrounded by the passing scenery. As guests head up to the sundeck, they are greeted with sunbeds, lounge chairs, a bar and a large Jacuzzi. This is the entertainment hub of LADY J offering endless possibilities for fun while underway. When at anchor, guests can take advantage of LADY J’s impressive collection of water toys fit for all ages.
