Built for Keith McCaw
The yacht was built by Feadship (Royal de Vries) for Keith McCaw. He, unfortunately, died at the age of 49 in 2002.
The McCaw brothers – lead by Craig McCaw, Keith’s older brother – built up the worldwide McCaw Cellular Communications after their father died. With a base of just a Centralia cable-TV station, they built the cell phone empire.
In 1993 the company was sold to AT&T (American Telephone & Telegraph Co) for US$ 11.5 billion.
Keith’s widow Helen McCaw kept the 38 meters Feadship Katrion until early 2015. When she sold her to Dutch millionaire Laurens Last.
Katrion is now named Lady India. The estate of Keith McCaw canceled the delivery of Utopia.
