Nancy Walton Laurie Net Worth: US$ 5.9 billion - Owners Company: Walmart - Owners Country: USA - Nancy Walton Laurie previously owned a 61 meter Feadship, now named Majestic.

Secret Yacht

The yacht Secret is a 82 meter (270ft) motor yacht built by Abeking & Rasmussen.




Sam Sergiovanni Design

She is designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, while J.W. Harris is responsible for her interior. Harris was also responsible for the interior of Walton’s previous Feadship yacht. Secret was delivered to her owners in 2013.




Superyacht Secret

Not much is known about Secret, but she is powered by two Caterpillar diesel engines, giving her a speed of 13 knots. She has a steel hull with an aluminum super structure. She can often be found in Barcelona.



Her sister Ann Walton Kroenke is the owner of the yacht Aquila.




Legal Dispute between Yacht Brokers

Nancy Walton’s ownership of Secret became clear following a legal dispute in the US between two yacht brokers, about the distribution of earned sales commission. (Nancy Walton was NOT a party in this dispute).



According to Broward County Case CACE11013809, a yacht broker named David Frazer was involved in the sale of Nancy Walton’s previous yacht, also named Secret, to US investor Bruce Sherman.



Frazer was fired by the involved yacht broker before closing the sale, but claims a part of the sales commission on the sale.




Listed for Sale

Early 2019 the yacht was listed for sale at Burgess. Asking US$ 135 million. There are some persistent rumors that ‘a member of the Walton Family has purchased the 110 meter / 360 ft yacht Jubilee. Given the fact that Secret is now listed for sale, it is possible that Nancy is the new owner of the yacht Jubilee.



Jubilee was built for the late Emir of Qatar. He died before delivery. The yacht was listed for sale asking US$ 310 million.




Yacht Charter

The boat is not available for yacht charter. And she is not listed for sale.

Nancy Walton Laurie

She is the daughter of Bud Walton, the brother and business partner of WalMart founder Sam Walton.




A US$ 4 billion stake in Walmart

At Bud's death, she inherited a stake in Wal-Mart now worth US$ 5 billion. Nancy Walton is married to Bill Laurie. Nancy and Bill owned the St. Louis Blues hockey team until 2005, when they sold the team to Dave Checketts.




Nancy Walton LaurieProvidence Bank

Nancy and Bill are owners of the Providence Bank. First chartered in 1888, the bank began as the Bank of Lincoln County. In 2007 Nancy and Bill Laurie purchased the institution and opened a branch in Columbia.



In 2008, the board changed the name to Providence Bank. Now it has two branches in Columbia and is headquartered there.



The bank has grown its assets aggressively since the Lauries acquired it, pumping up its balance sheet from USD 36 million at the end of 2006 to USD 170 million as of September 2010, according to financial data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.



The biggest boost to Providence’s balance sheet came in October 2010 when it acquired the nine remaining branches and some USD 658 million in assets from Premier Bank after the latter was wound down by the FDIC.




Page Sports Entertainment

Nancy and Bill own Page Sports Entertainment, which acts as their business holding and family business office. Paige Sports is named after their daughter Page Laurie.  




Feadship Secret

Nancy previously owned the Feadship Secret, but sold the yacht in 2010 to Bruce Sherman. The yacht is renamed Majestic.

Her net worth is estimated at US$ 5.9 billion (February 2019).


She also owns the Columbia Performing Arts Centre in Columbia. The Nancy Walton Laurie Leadership Institute of Chi Omega provides leadership training and education for women to foster personal growth and to prepare them to serve the world.




Bill Laurie

Laurie is a childhood friend of Nancy. They married after graduating. He was a teacher and a basketball coach. He is now a real estate developer and manages the Walton family real estate portfolio.




Private Jet

We think (but are not 100% sure..) That Nancy and Bill are the owners of a Gulfstream G650 private jet, with registration N1AL




Walton Laurie Residence

Nancy and her husband Bill live in a large mansion in Henderson Nevada. They also own a large house in Los Angeles and a ranch styled mansion in Columbia, Missouri.  The property is known as the  Crown Center Farms. It is a 350-acre equine farm in Missouri, where they breed Appaloosa horses.
