A Sugar Palace

Lord Sugar puts his gin palace up for sale for £12.7 million after owning it for just two years; it was originally built for the controversial tycoon Alan Bond

 

On Monday, the Daily Mail’s Sebastian Shakespeare revealed that Lord Sugar – of The Apprentice fame, in case you didn’t already know – is trying to sell his motor yacht, the ‘Lady A’, for £12.7 million ($16.5 million, €14 million or درهم60.6 million).

 

The 181-foot long gin palace accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins and has a crew of 15. Built in Japan in 1986 for the subsequently disgraced and now dead Australian tycoon Alan Bond (1938 – 2015), the vessel passed through various other hands before being bought by Lord Sugar in 2015. Originally known as ‘Southern Cross III’, the boat was renamed ‘Indian Princess’ during supposed ownership by the brewing tycoon and ‘King of Good Times’ Vijay Mallya and ‘Emihar Chios’ whilst owned by the Greek shipping tycoon Harry N. Vafias.

Totally refitted over 10 months in 2016 by Burgess Marine and then renamed in honour of Lord Sugar’s wife since 1968, Lady Sugar (originally Ann), the ‘Lady A’ is described as a “unique market opportunity” and “one of the most distinctive yachts on the water” by brokers Edmiston.

  1. This old tub belonged to Alan Bondy in the 80s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was a rogue and a rotter!!!!!!!!!!!!! A properly large bloke who liked to parade around like a king!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Turns out he was actually just a bit of a bad un!!!!!!!!!!!! Bleurgh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. This site and this news disgusts me. Madeleine McCann is still missing and her beloved parents Gerry and Kate are campaigning to find their wonderful daughter. Sir Alan should give the funds raised from this search to the FIND MADELEINE campaign. We need to find MADELEINE and FIND HER NOW. Why do you not help Sir Alan? Why do you not help Steeples Times? DISGUSTING.

    1. My God Gillian
      WTF Would you do with your boring self if they actually did find her, and she implicated her parents in her abduction.
      I know, you could join Rolf is innocent,or Jimmy Savile was really a poor misunderstood guy that did a lot of work for charity. GET A LIFE.
