GALLANT LADY is the eighth Feadship built for her owner. Being the first Feadship launched under the Royal DeVries designation as well as the first Feadship built with an interior utilizing lightweight aircraft technology to ensure her shallow draft, this yacht represents aesthetic and technical achievements second to none. GALLANT LADY is an ecofriendly yacht incorporating advanced innovations. Her owner is a founding member of the Seakeeper’s Society and the GALLANT LADY was built to reflect their longstanding commitment to the ocean environment.
Designed by her owner, the GALLANT LADY’s signature vertical windows, stacked decks and raked bow are accented with the debut of a three dimensional wave-like scrollwork and “F” signature on the bow. A recurring “X” theme can be found throughout the yacht and appears in design details as fine as the air conditioning vents or as grand as her polished stainless steel pillars.
Unique to a yacht of her size and quality, the shallow draft greatly increases her cruising capabilities, yet she is very stable thanks to her Quantum Marine zero speed stabilizers.
The rich interior showcases beautiful woods ranging from black walnut, sycamore, eucalyptus and myrtle burl. Stunning glasswork artfully combined with seventeen granites and marbles create the feel of romantic elegance. Custom-made Tai Ping carpets and silk panels accentuate luxurious textures throughout the yacht.
The GALLANT LADY accommodates ten guests in five staterooms.
The MAIN SALON defines classic elegance. A palette of black walnut, myrtle burl and eucalyptus complement rich fabrics and contemporary-styled furniture. Day or night the eight large windows create a spacious ambiance.
Moving forward to the MAIN FOYER there is a spectacular four-person circular elevator comprised of a monolithic pane of glass framed in polished stainless. Beautiful marble inlays custom cut in Holland were used to create a Koi pond motif on the elevator floor. The elevator itself required more
than a year to complete. The elevator is wide enough to be wheelchair accessible.
Starboard of the elevator is a dramatic floating-spiral staircase spanning two decks and taking full advantage of the GALLANT LADY’s vertical windows.
Forward of the elevator are two identical DAYHEADS featuring Blue Siena and Rosso Verona marbles.
Continuing forward, seven raised steps lead to a DINING SALON offering spectacular panoramic views. An opulent custom starburst mahogany veneer table easily extends to accommodate up to twelve guests. Azul Aran granite window sills complement myrtle burl and black walnut cabinetry. Custom built floor-to-ceiling cabinets conceal a full complement of Bernardaud china, Varga crystal and Christofle cutlery. A custom made and beautifully inlayed Tai Ping carpet adorns the floor.
Of special interest beneath the Dining Salon is one of Feadship’s most significant technological achievements. Concealed therein is a state-of-the-art ducted air conditioning system once reserved for the abundant space of deep fulldisplacement hull. A massive central air conditioning plant remains hidden under the semi-raised floor with large ducts incorporated into the ship’s structure. While previous designs would incorporate chilled-water air handlers in perimeter cabinetry, this innovative design permits the induction of cooled air through a decorative grill spanning the entire length of wall with warm-air returns discreetly concealed in the Dining Salon’s tray ceiling. This breakthrough design permitted window lines to be lowered significantly with an equally dramatic increase in spaciousness and view.
The GALLEY, redone in 2020, is conveniently located aft of the Dining Salon. Along with the spacious DINING SALON PANTRY and MAIN SALON PANTRY, these areas provide a streamlined approach for service to guests in either the Dining Salon or aft Main Salon. There are professional quality refrigerators and freezers, ample prep areas, and storage for crew to have a proper work environment. The pantries have granite and marbles throughout, along with beautiful woodwork creating a feeling of elegance.
The AFT MAIN DECK serves as the GALLANT LADY’s primary al fresco dining area with comfortable table seating for ten guests. A settee, small table and two chairs provide additional seating. Staircases on port and starboard provide direct access to the RECREATION PLATFORM and Lazarette. OWNER’s DECK, accessed by the elevator from the main deck (second deck amidship aft),for the utmost in privacy, the OWNER’s FOYER has two sets of double doors.
The full-beam OWNER’s STATEROOM is bright, radiant and the epitome of luxurious comfort. Fluted columns and curvaceous floor-to-ceiling doors generate a classic ambiance with giant windows bathing a king-size bed in natural light. The Owner’s Stateroom is a spectacular private space. The massive interior volume of GALLANT LADY is showcased in the OWNER’s BATHROOM area. These 125 square meters (408 square feet) of space are dedicated to his and her toilets, bidets, dressing areas and wardrobes. A walk-in shower and solarium with pantry complete the space. Designed to create a warm and mellow ambiance, Sunshine marble with accents and inlays of Afyon and Blue Siena are ed. The etched shower doors and walls have an “Orioles in Oleander” theme which was custom designed for the area. Variable controls allow the illumination of glass art to be adjusted for color and brightness.
An even finer vista is provided from the Owner’s private shaded AFT DECK area, which incorporates a spa pool and dining area.
Instead of the wheelhouse above the Dining Salon, GALLANT ADY has an intriguing CLUB LOUNGE forward, which ogether with the Owner’s Stateroom aft creates a true WNER’s DECK. Large windows, a high-back settee and a elcoming bar provide an ideal retreat to relax and admire he view.
The OWNER’s DECK PANTRY and CAPTAIN’s CABIN are just ortside and aft of the Club Lounge area. The Captain’s Cabin and athroom are fitted with White Calcutta marble with Verde Giada ccents. The cabin includes a desk, ensuite shower, remote engine oom alarm panel and B&G HS-2000 weather monitoring system.
With an elevated settee, the Wheelhouse is spacious enough o accommodate guests observing the running of the yacht. he bridge includes two Recaro Captain’s chairs and a world lass complement of navigational and electronic equipment.
Aft is the SHIP’s OFFICE containing ample work space. he SUN DECK has room to hold a 20’ tender as well as antilevered wing platforms to port and starboard. This deck rea also doubles as a spacious guest area for sunbathing or iewing the stars.
FLYBRIDGE / CROW’S NEST:
Located atop the Wheelhouse, this semi-enclosed flybridge as an ingenious window arrangement which can be adapted o any wind condition. There is port and starboard access to spacious observation wings which can be utilized by the Captain for enhanced visibility while maneuvering. The com station has been completely reconfigured & updated in 2020.
Guests are treated royally onboard GALLANT LADY, with a fabulous GUEST FOYER on the lower deck opening into the four spacious GUEST STATEROOMS. Her two queen and two twin guest staterooms are appointed with rich fabrics, handsome cabinetry crafted with three exotic woods and autiful Giallo Reale, Emparador and White Callacatta marbles. The bathrooms are of unprecedented size for any yacht. The bathrooms include custom-etched glasswork shower doors in “Humming Birds in Tulip Tree” and “Macaws & Shefelera” designs.
In addition to the Captain’s Cabin aft of the Club Lounge, there is berthing for ten crew members in five twin CREW CABINS forward of the engine room. Each cabin is outfitted with a full head, shower, sycamore cabinetry, light green Corian countertops and individual drop-down entertainment monitors with headsets for each bunk. The area contains a spacious CREW LOUNGE with L-shaped settee.
The LAUNDRY area is well designed with two sets of washers and dryers and ample counter workspace.
The technically advanced ENGINE ROOM is located at the center of the lower deck. This well- designed multi-level space is exceptionally well-lit, fully air conditioned and visible to the air conditioned CONTROL ROOM which is adjacent starboard and forward. The engine room epitomizes the high standards of a “GALLANT LADY."

There is an array of competitive advantages offered to savvy clients who join the Northrop & Johnson family. Northrop & Johnson offers bespoke, unsurpassed service not found elsewhere in the yachting industry. Northrop & Johnson is constantly evolving in order to meet the needs of our discerning clients. We are proud to provide the necessary tools and support to ensure the unwavering success and contentment of our clients.
Northrop & Johnson Chairman, Kevin Merrigan, has a background as unique and captivating as the yachts we represent. A native of San Diego, California, Kevin has sailed since childhood. After graduating from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Kevin found himself briefly landlocked during a short-lived foray in the oil and gas industry. With an itch to get back on the water and a plan to buy a boat, Kevin made a return trip to the west coast that didn’t quite go as expected.
“It was the late 1980s. I was an impetuous kid in my late twenties, and I’d made a little money. I’d gone back to California to buy an Irwin-52, but when I met the broker, it occurred to me that his job was much cooler than my job. Long story short, I furled the plan to buy the Irwin and instead moved to the east coast to pursue a career as a yacht broker. At the time, Northrop & Johnson was the only brokerage in the US with an international presence, so I decided it was the right place to be.”
After a season in Newport, Kevin moved to the Marblehead, Massachusetts office and became a partner. In 1990, he took over the Fort Lauderdale, Florida office, eventually becoming CEO of the Northrop and Johnson Holding Company. In 2020, Kevin embraced an opportunity to merge Northrop and Johnson with the resources, stability and influence of the Marine Max brand. Following the merger, Kevin remains committed and engaged as Northrop & Johnson's Chairman.
Kevin has negotiated purchase and sale agreements on over 300 yachts, he has contracted ten, new construction projects, and has closed deals in 15 countries. A yachting industry leader, Kevin was instrumental in founding the International Yacht Council and served on the Board of Directors of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA) from 1994-2005. He has served as Treasurer for both the Florida Yacht Brokers Association and the International Yacht Council. Kevin is a member of FYBA, MYBA, YBAA, CYBA and LYBA.
As a true company patriarch, Kevin is known for treating his clients like family. Currently, 75- percent of his clients are repeat clients. He is married to his college sweetheart, Mariette, who was the Vice President and CFO of Northrop and Johnson for 26-years. They have been steadfast supporters of Kids In Distress, raising over $1M for the organization. The Merrigans’ son, Matthew recently graduated from Princeton and has followed his father’s path by journeying west to attend grad school at Stanford. Kevin and his wife divide their year between residences in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and Jamestown, RI.
