Burgess New Construction does it again.

 

The 93m Feadship LADY S has triumphed at the 2020 World Superyacht Awards in the Displacement Motor Yacht 2,000GT - 4,999GT category. Warding off fierce competition, this accolade celebrates the fine craftsmanship, superior engineering and masterful design work from all involved.

Her build was painstakingly project managed and overseen by the Burgess New Construction (BNC) and Burgess Commercial teams over the course of five years, working hand in hand with her visionary owners from conception to delivery and through into operation. She is a direct reflection of the work of a truly masterful team of designers, builders and project managers.  

The 15th annual World Superyacht Awards, held remotely on Friday 13 November paid tribute to the continued hard work, innovation and robustness of the superyacht industry during what has been an unprecedented year.

‘This was an incredibly challenging project,' says Rory Boyle, naval architect and project manager with Burgess New Construction. 'The client set the bar extremely high in so many respects, but it has resulted in a standout and now, award winning yacht. We would like to extend our congratulations to all involved, and especially the owners for their pioneering vision.'

Speaking from the WSA, the judges based their decision on LADY S’ 'radical shapes and complex engineering, it is, in the judges view, a very special yacht!’

'The whole yacht was built around the double height IMAX cinema which also incorporates Dolby Atmos sound, the first on any yacht. There isn't a cubic centimetre of this yacht that hasn't been considered and reconsidered, solutions applied and then optimised to make this happen.'

Other stand-out features include a 201" Porsche-designed C'Seed TV screen that rotates, folds and withdraws into the deck - another first for any yacht.

But for Rory, in common with the rest of the Burgess team, LADY S is not just an outstanding - indeed award winning - yacht. She is the product of a multitude of challenges overcome through commercial and technical knowledge by an industry leading team of experts who have spent a considerable span of their lives working towards this result.

‘This was truly an all-encompassing Burgess project’ says Peter Brown, Senior Partner, ‘BNC and the Burgess Commercial teams worked seamlessly together from the very start researching the various design and build options with the owner, to whom enormous credit is due for choosing such an adventurous and visionary path. We are incredibly proud of the result.’

Huge congratulations must go to her amazing owners, to Feadship, Michael Leach Design, Reymond Langton Design, Richard Hein, LADY S Captain, the crew and all the other members of the team involved to bring this project to life.

Burgess is extremely proud to have played such a central role in such an extraordinary team on such a special yacht.
