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. Her cruising speed is 15 knots. Madame Gu was named Superyacht of the Year in 2014.
Enclosed helicopter hangar
Superyacht Madame Gu has a fully enclosed helicopter hangar, similar to Ecstasea. The hangar can also function as a squash court.
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.
Who is the Owner of the Yacht MADAME GU?
The yacht’s owner is billionaire Andrey Skoch.
His father, Vladimir Skoch, is the beneficiary of the trust that is a 30% shareholder of USM Holdings. USM is a holding company with different assets including Metalloinvest and Megafon.
Metalloinvest is one of the largest iron ore and hot-briquetted iron producers in the world. Megafon is a large telecom operator in Russia.
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. And requesting kindly to remove this information.
However, research by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) 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 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. She was renamed Lady Gulya. And is now sold and named Astrid Conroy.
How Much is the MADAME GU Yacht?
Her value is $150 million. Her annual running costs are around $15 million. The price of a yacht can vary greatly depending on a number of factors, including the size, age, and level of luxury of the yacht, as well as the materials and technology used in its construction.
