Superyacht Madame Gu

Superyacht Madame Gu was delivered by Feadship in 2013 after four years of construction. With a length of 99 meters, Madame Gu is the largest yacht built in the Netherlands. The yacht’s interior and exterior are designed by Andrew Winch Designs. The yacht can reach a maximum speed of 24 knots, powered by four MTU 20v diesel engines. Luxury yacht Madame Gu has a fully enclosed helicopter hangar, similar to Ecstasea. Madame Gu is rumored to be owned by Andrei Skoch. However Superyachtfan received a message from a London based law firm, stating that Mr. Skoch is actually NOT the owner of the yacht Madame Gu, and requesting kindly to remove this information. So from now on: Superyacht Madame Gu is NOT owned by Mr. Andrei Skoch.  Mr. Skoch also does not own the Amels built motor yacht Gu, now renamed Lady Gulya. Early 2014, Madame Gu was spotted in Barcelona.. The yacht has an impressive tender: a Eurcopter Dauphin AS 365N3, with a cost price of around US$ 9 million. She is registered to Monacair, with registration number 3A-MGU.
