Camper & Nicholsons International has listed the 344-foot Blohm+Voss Lady Moura for sale—the first time the iconic yacht has ever been offered.

Lady Moura launched in 1990 and was, at that time, the most expensive yacht in the world. She was the ninth-largest yacht in the world too, known for her innovative features as well as her gold-plated nameplate. Her gross tonnage is 6,359, and her range is better than 8,000 nautical miles at 17 knots.

The yacht has since served as a private family residence, with the most recent upgrades including rebuilt generators and engines, new teak decks, refurbished crew and technical spaces, and hull paint.

Among her guest-friendly features are balconies off the beach club (an engineering first when she launched) as well as hydraulically operated doors and gangways. Also on board are a helipad, movie theater/disco, gymnasium, indoor pool, spa with sauna, medical suites, two galleys and a bakery.

Is it true that a whole deck on Lady Moura is dedicated to family life? Yes, with seven staterooms. They are in addition to staterooms that bring the yacht’s full guest complement to 26, and there are quarters for 72 crew and staff.
