Lady Candy comes out of the Benetti camp and is a 56m super yacht. As designers and owner’s representatives, Captain Paul Brackley, engineer Brett Mitchell and the rest of the team at Central Yacht used the ethos of ‘form follows function’ to develop a highly efficient design, which improves service and onboard experience. It’s evident in every aspect of the yacht, from the stowage of crockery to what guests hear, see and smell, from the exterior styling to – perhaps most fundamentally – the layout.
Captain Brackley believes the water level aft is one of the loveliest spots on board to sit, “I think it’s much nicer than seeing the ocean in front, it’s more calming, more relaxing to watch the wake,” he says.
Super yacht Lady Candy has an unusual enclosed beach club aft, where guests can enjoy wonderful views. Instead of an aft garage common on yachts of this size, Brackley designed an enclosed aft beach club with a bar, comfortable seating and portholes for gazing at that wake.
To starboard there is a gym separated from the social space by a glass partition. Indoor stairs as well as exterior ones mean the beach club is usable during bad weather or when docked at the marina. There is a cinema forward on the main deck.
