Motor Yacht ASEAN LADY is an 88 m 289 (foot) steel luxury yacht, crafted by Raffles Yachts Yantai and designed by Ian Mitchell. Provides accommodation for 18 guests in 8 spacious staterooms, of which the master cabin is an incredible 160sqm in size with a private balcony and office. She is particularly well suited for entertainment in a tropical environment with large indoor areas, giving everyone on board lots of space and privacy in a splendid environment.
Characterized by her spaciousness, ASEAN LADY is also unique for her shape with a design based on a Proa: a bamboo outrigger canoe known for their stability and long range, and used for centuries by the indigenous people of the South Pacific.
The distinctive design has solved many typical problems for luxury yachts such as space, noise, stability at anchor, stability while cruising and large windows.
ASEAN LADY is powered by a single 2000hp engine with a Counter Rotating Propeller (CRP) Azimuth Drive. She has a top speed of 15 knots and the yacht is also equipped with a 600hp Retractable Thruster that is capable of propelling her at a speed of 7 knots. ASEAN LADY can literally walk sideways with both the forward and aft drives making berthing a breeze. Her stability was put to the test in December 2004 when she survived the Tsunami while anchored off Phuket.
ASEAN LADY was named the most innovative motor yacht by Showboats International in 2005.
