riverhomes is delighted to offer to the market Rebel Lady - an archetypal gentleman's motor yacht from 1965 measuring 60ft and maintained to the highest standards. The yacht is located on a permanent berth in St Katharine Docks which is convenient for the city of London and the West End. The current owners have had the boat professionally managed and maintained by a team of engineers and technicians since 1999. She has a handsome steel hull with teak superstructure and decks. Rebel Lady represents the last of the line of private motor boats that had the bridge at the stern. The accommodation comprises; sitting room at deck level which opens out onto a large deck perfect for entertaining and eating, steps lead down to the main saloon/reception room. You will then find a modern fitted kitchen, utility room and toilet towards the bow. There is another set of steps down to the living quarters where you will find a master cabin with en suite shower room, two further cabins with bunks and another shower room.The mooring is transferable and will be arranged by the marina directly. The dock also offers excellent transport links; Tower Hill Underground and Tower Gateway DLR Stations are a short walk away. There are also numerous restaurants and bars located within the marina offering residents and visitors a variety of options.Unless riverhomes notifies you in writing, we are only selling this vessel and NOT the mooring. The rental of the mooring is by separate negotiation with the marina or mooring management, all prospective buyers should make their own enquiries with them directly to understand the ingoing costs and mooring fees payable by a new owner. Any mooring fees given here or verbally are approximate and intended as a guide only.HISTORY In 1949 the De Vries and Van Lent families came together with several other Dutch yards to approach the American market, where motor yacht sales were booming in the late 1940s. Feadship was introduced to the American public at the 1951 New York Boat Show. The high quality offered by Feadship impressed the public and attracted the attention of many famous people. These included Malcolm Forbes who launched the first of three, Highlander, Feadships in 1957.

Rebel Lady was imported into Newcastle in 1965 and until 2000 was kept on the Hamble at Moodys yard opposite the Jolly Sailor. She represents the last of the line of private motor boats that had the bridge at the stern. This marks the change from a crewed boat where the owner had little involvement, to a time when owners took control, needed greater visibility and the bridge was no longer the domain of the crew.
