The yacht Lady Gulya is an amazing large motor yacht built by Lurssen and delivered in 2019. The yacht is designed by Winch Design. She has a length of 111 meters and a beam of 16 meters. She was built as yacht TIS.
The luxury yacht has a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure. Her displacement is 4,500 tons. Which makes her similar in size as the Oceanco Jubilee and Mikhail Prokhorov’s Palladium.
According to AIS data her cruise speed is around 9 knots. While we estimate her top speed above 18 knots.
The Lady Gulya boat has a very classic styled interior designed by Winch Design. There is much use of gold marble in her interior. The formal saloon has a grand open staircase to the upper saloon. There is a glass-enclosed dining area on the main deck.
Her features include a helicopter pad capable for a Eurocopter 135. A large swimming pool and a resort-inspired spa with a large sauna with balcony. There is a cinema, The luxury yacht can accommodate 18 guests with a crew of 38. There is a dedicated crew elevator.
We received several messages that her original owner is related to the Ukrainian logistics company TIS.
We also received a more specific message, that her owner was Alexey Fedorychev. And not to our surprise he is (or was) the majority shareholder of this company name TIS. And we found online articles stating that he is building a large yacht. (And that he chartered large yachts in the past).
We were also told that her owner defaulted on the purchase contract. And that the yacht was subsequently repossessed by Lurssen. She was later listed for sale, asking EUR 275,000,000. In 2020 she was reported sold and was sent to Lurssen in Germany for a refit.
The yacht’s owner is (probably) Alisher Usmanov, although we did link the yacht to Andrei Skoch.
Immediately after she was sold, we received messages that Tis was bought by Usmanov. He reportedly needed a temporary replacement for his yacht Dilbar, as Dilbar was going to have a big (8 months) refit.
This scenario is still possible (in December 2020). But then we expect Dilbar to move to Germany soon.
During the Christman holiday season, both Dilbar and Lady Gulya were cruising together for a long period.
We are a bit in doubt, however, since the new hull color of Lady Gulya is not similar to Dilbar’s color. And her superstructure is not fully painted, as with Dilbar.
Also, we expected Ona, as a new name and not Lady Gulya.
There has been another Lady Gulya in the past. That was Andrei Skoch‘s (former) yacht GU, which was renamed Lady Gulya when his new yacht Madame Gu was delivered. However, we were told, that Skoch sold the yacht before she was named Lady Gulya.
The German newspaper Bild, did mention Skoch as the owner of Lady Gulya.
We are still a bit in doubt, but the yacht is either owned by Usmanov or Andrey Skoch. And probably by Usmanov.
