Lady India was built as Katrion for Keith McCaw, who died before delivery. His widow used Katrion until 2015 when she sold the yacht to Laurens Last
The superyacht Lady India was built as Katrion by Feadship. She was delivered in 2003 and was built for Keith McCaw.
Keith McCaw was one of the four McCaw Brothers, who inherited McCaw Cellular Communications when their father died. McCaw Cellular was sold to AT&T in September 1994 for US$11.5 billion. Keith McCaw died in 2002 at the age of 49 in the hot tub at his Lake Washington home in Seattle. At that moment he had two yachts under construction at Feadship: the 39 meter Katrion and the 71 meter yacht Utopia. His widow Helen McCaw cancelled the Utopia project. Feadship finished Utopia anyway and chartered her commercially for a few years. Later Utopia was sold to Bill Miller. Helen McCaw kept Katrion and used her for many years, until early 2015 when she was sold to Laurens Last.
Katrion was built by Feadship’s the De Vries yard in 2003 to a design by De Voogt. She is powered by twin 650hp Caterpillar engines which give her a range of 4,300 nautical miles . Her original interior was designed by Michael McQuiston. In 2015 she was sold and renamed Lady India. Lady India can accommodate up to 10 guests in 4 elegant guest suites. A full beam owner’s suite with private breakfast room, ensuite bathroom with steam shower and spa bath; a full beam VIP stateroom and a further 2 twin staterooms with Pullman. At her 2015 refit her interior was redone to a design of Versteegh Design.
