In the age of the superyacht, classic yachts are getting a second look from many looking to buy. While yacht dealers vaunt modern design’s copious amenities, most have become standard in the industry. Classic yachts, on the other hand, bring with them a unique style with standout details and a distinguished air reminiscent of the yesteryear of yacht design. Here are five (of many) classic U.S.-based yachts for sale that stand out from the rest.
First delivered in 1991 and then refit in 2016, the 120’ Lady Victoria is ready for its next owner. Feadship masterfully designed this immaculate yacht with style and comfort in mind. With full walk-around decks on both the bridge and main decks, this unique structure provides a freedom that is unlike most others. Lady Victoria also is unique in its two-galley setup which makes it perfect to host large on-board events. All major systems were updated or replaced in 2016 making this vessel as up to date as newer models. With four staterooms able to sleep eight guests, Lady Victoria features a master suite with rare satinwood and other guest areas display a lavishness that you will not find elsewhere.
