SuperYacht Majestic

The yacht Majestic was built as Secret for Nancy Walton Laurie, the daughter of Bud Walton, the brother and business partner of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton. The yacht was delivered to Mrs Laurie in 2007, but information can be found here that she sold the yacht in 2010 for USD 69 million to Bruce Sherman.

Legal Battle over Sales Commissions

This transaction lead to some legal battle as the broker involved was fired by the brokerage firm before completion of the sale. The broker claimed USD 4,8 million in lost commissions. Mr. Sherman himself was not a party in this battle. The information that Mr. Sherman owns Majestic is supported here, where it is stated that Mr and Mrs Sherman donated a week in a 201ft yacht. And according to this document the ‘donated yacht’ is a Feadship. And as far as SuperYachtFan is informed, Majestic is the only 201ft Feadship built.

Denying Ownership

However SuperYachtFan received an e-mail from a Florida Lawyer, claiming to represent Mr. Sherman, stating that Mr. Sherman is actually not the owner of the yacht. But search here for this case: CACE11013809, and it will be clear that Mr. Sherman purchased Majestic.


Nancy Walton Laurie ordered a new 82 meter yacht - also named Secret - at Abeking & Rasmussen, which was delivered to her in 2013. The interior design of both yachts is done by Jim Harris.

Yacht Majestic

The yacht Majestic was built in 2007 at Feadship in the Netherlands. Majestic can accommodate 14 guests and a crew of 16. Her twin Caterpillar engines give her a top speed of 16 knots. Her features include a cinema, a Jacuzzi and a gym. Her interior is designed by Jim Harris.
