LADY VICTORIA offers a complete escape from the average and ordinary. A true gentleman’s yacht, she is a haven of impeccable elegance.
Her gracefully classic exterior lines are complemented by a refined interior that suggests the atmosphere of an exclusive club. Beautiful French doors open from the aft deck into the expansive salon, where soft, cream-colored furnishings lend a light, contemporary touch to masterfully crafted, curved wood paneling accented with gold. The salon opens to the dining area and a large oval table whose supremely comfortable chairs invite lingering over candlelit dinners. Farther forward, a door leads into the owner's private, country-style galley. This secondary area provides a unique and convenient addition, with the capacity for everything from complete formal, gourmet delights to simple snacks and drinks.
Also on the main deck, a richly furnished library creates a welcoming spot for quiet pursuits. Recent upgrades include a modern entertainment center with over 400 movies, satellite TV, and a variety of games. This handsome space can be converted to a sleeping cabin with a queen bed, giving the yacht the capability to accommodate up to eight guests.
Three large staterooms are located on the lower deck, just down a spiral staircase. The full-beam master is fitted with a king bed, seating area, and desk. Its his-and-hers bathrooms with spa tub and shower are finished in spectacular golden onyx. A second spa tub is found in the onyx-lined bathroom that accompanies the lovely queen stateroom. In the third stateroom, with two twin beds, the ensuite bathroom has a steam shower framed by a vaulted blue-glass ceiling.
The covered aft deck is a popular spot for casual meals and cocktails. Its high-gloss varnished mahogany chairs, along with dark blue and red piping-accented cushions, suggest the feeling of a stylish yacht club and invite relaxed conversations.
Up on the sundeck, guests may choose to stretch out in the lounge chairs or enjoy the scenic views from a table and chairs set beneath large umbrellas. A new entertainment center has been added here for listening and viewing pleasure. The Jacuzzi, with ample space for up to six, is an irresistible place to unwind in the gentle breeze or beneath the stars. The Jacuzzi can also be converted to a comfortable sunbed.
LADY VICTORIA has the full complement of water toys. For the ultimate in classic style, she also carries a sleek, 18-foot Riva Junior motorboat, which has been completely restored to concours d’elegance standards. Complementing the Riva is a 16-foot hard-bottom inflatable that's perfect for watersport activities and exploratory excursions.
Led by her gracious and exceptionally experienced captain, LADY VICTORIA’s crew look forward to creating a memorable, five-star experience custom-designed for her guests.

Rotational Engineer Daniel Sampiero | American
Born and raised in Coconut Grove Florida, Dan began sailing at the age of six, and became enthralled with racing one designs, small keel boats, and all manner of making a sailing vessel go fast. His dedication and focus to sailboat speed and racing performance led to his first summer job at fourteen as a sailmaker’s apprentice. Dan’s thrill-seeking nature compelled him to pursue auto-cross, then motorcycle racing, and eventually, he settled on kitesurfing to satiate his need for adrenaline. In that time worked in the motorcycle industry, then transitioned into communication technology, and finally business to business sales. After over ten years in retail sales management and training Dan decided to cut off his tie, trade his dress shoes for no-shoes and took a job as captain on charter boats in the Florida Keys. Five years later, Dan earned his Divemaster rating, and covered over 15,000 nautical miles under sail, and was Captain for over 70 week-long charter excursions in Florida, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Dan still loves sailing but has a deep appreciation for the utility of all watercraft. As a member of Captains for Clean Water, Dan comes to our team with a passion for conservation and environmental stewardship.
