Built by Lubbe Voss in 1982 Lady Thuraya underwent a major 18-month refit in 2008/2009, which saw her transformed into a high luxury sailing yacht with all modern amenities and technologies while still retaining her classic lines and many original fittings. The result is a yacht that is the perfect blend of classic and modern, with a fully modernised contemporary interior designed by Henk Lunstroo to complements her classic-style exterior. A popular charter yacht, with her design specifically tailored to the charter market, she is an ideal social yacht for entertaining and enjoying the on-water yachting lifestyle with large interior and exterior spaces.
All upgraded navigation system ready to cruise the world’s oceans.
Complete refit of the interior showcases clean lines, pops of color, and supreme comfort for guests.
Though Lady Thuraya underwent an 18 month full refit in 2009, there was considerable time, effort and money spent to preserve the classic lines of this 1982 by Lubbe Voss.
