Lady V


Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada
  • 3 Staterooms
  • 2 Heads
  • 2 Engines

Welcome aboard this 1996 Queenship 56 Pilothouse, "Lady V." This exquisite yacht is powered by twin Caterpillar 3176 diesel engines, each delivering 600hp with only 2091 hours. 90% Freshwater history.

"Lady V" has the comfort and amenities of a much larger vessel. The solid feel and robust systems of the vessel makes her more like a ship than a boat. This exquisite Euro style exterior semi custom yacht will immediately separate herself from common name production boats. The choice of ultra leather and desirable cherry and maple wood, sets the tone of refinement and comfort. Relaxing is made easy with the large saloon area featuring a L shape couch and reclining chair and ottoman where you could watch TV underway with a new KVH TV3 system. Forward of the salon is a very functional galley with an abundance of cabinetry storage, a full-size fridge, stove and convection oven microwave. Forward and up a few stairs to the very large Pilot house area with custom seating and tables and a pair of wing doors for easy deck access. Piloting in either the heat or air conditioning from the pilot house is made easy with new Raymarine electronics suite, including depth, chart, radar and autopilot. Redundant secondary systems Furuno radar system, secondary GPS and vhf radio ensure a safe transit to wherever you cruise. Three staterooms include an aft full beam Queen master with private bath, vip queen v berth and a pair of single berths in the third share the second head with second stand up shower.

Outside areas include the top side with two lounge chairs for sunning as well as the Davit crane for launching the tender. The aft deck features a lounging seating barbecue. Dual stairs lead from the aft deck down to a large swim platform that offers easy water access as well as access to the large lazarette which offers generous storage and walk-in engine room with 6'3” of headroom. Easy access to all the ship's systems.

Lady V has always been looked after and is ready to cruise anywhere. As the top mast is built with a hinge and is easily lowered she is a Great Loop boat or she could also serve as a condo on the water as a live aboard.

Queenship Yachts:

Queenship Yachts produces motor yachts in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada. Its beginnings stem from a longtime shipyard on the Fraser River. The experience that Queenship brings to custom yacht building is extensive and evidenced in every yacht produced. Queenship works with both customers and designers to personalize each yacht, meeting and exceeding the discerning requirements of experienced yachtsmen who choose Queenship as the ultimate motor yacht. Custom built Queenship hulls are especially strong, made of mixed resins, and lightweight. Queenship engineers solve the problem of fuel usage versus yacht cruising range by paying particular attention to hull design. For instance, their Caribe Series luxury yacht hulls are a direct descendant of the U.S. Navy’s Fast Patrol Boat Program, featuring soft dry rides, superb roll dampening and stability at any speed. Attention to safety is paramount and shines through with forethought, such as rounded corners at wall and cabinet edges to prevent injury in rough seas. Their backyard consists of one of the world’s harshest testing grounds (or waters), the Pacific Northwest. Queenship builds a variety of yachts, including sport cruisers, super salon cruisers, wide body models, and pilothouse motor yachts. Sizes of Queenship yachts range from 56 feet to 90 feet in overall length. Queenship has created some of the world’s most celebrated yachts and has been honored with coveted awards, such as the International Superyacht Society’s “Best Semi-Displacement” Award and “Best Motor Yacht Interior” Award.
