#53: GALLANT LADY —172'0"
Even with the delivery earlier this year of a 168-footer by the same name (see Gallant Lady, no. 60), this Gallant Lady isn't for sale. She's still one of the hardest-working and best-maintained yachts out there, entertaining executives from Toyota's Japanese headquarters as well as stateside business associates of JM Family Enterprises, an automotive company based in Florida. We spotted her in Virgin Gorda in the BVI in May and again in Fort Lauderdale in July.
