Yacht Madame Gu

One of the largest Feadships

The Luxury Yacht Madame Gu was delivered by Feadship in 2013 after four years of construction. With a length of 99 meters, Madame Gu is one of the largest yachts 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. Madame Gu was named Superyacht of the Year in 2014.


Enclosed helicopter hangar

Luxury yacht Madame Gu has a fully enclosed helicopter hangar, similar to Ecstasea. The hangar can also function as a squash court.


Is Andrei Skoch the owner of Madame Gu?

Andrey Skoch is the owner of the yacht Madame Gu. A few years ago SuperYachtFan received a message from a London based PR company named Finsbury, stating that Mr. Skoch is actually NOT the owner of the yacht Madame Gu, and requesting kindly to remove this information.


Paradise Papers

However research by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) disclosed disclosed that the Skoch family actually is the owner of the yacht. The contract was signed by Castel Shipping, based in Belize, but during construction the project was sold to Almano Holding on the Cayman Islands. The Paradise Papers disclose that Elena Lickhach the owner of Almano Holdings is. Elena Lickhach is the wife of Andrey Skoch. So formally Skoch’s advisor is right: the yacht is not owned by Skoch, but by his wife. ;-)   Mr. Skoch also owned the Amels built motor yacht Gu, renamed Lady Gulya, now sold and named Astrid Conroy.


The Yacht’s helicopter

The yacht has an impressive tender: a Eurocopter Dauphin AS 365N3, with a cost price of around US$ 9 million. She is registered to Monacair, with registration number 3A-MGU.


Charter Madame Gu

The yacht Madame Gu is not available for charter.
