The Lucky Lady was a large sailing yacht that Chuck Johnson bought. It was a 175-foot sailboat made by Magellan Brothers.[1]

History Edit

Chuck along with Steve Sharp and their families and friends set off on the ship for a trip to Europe.[2]

It used to be called Pure Greek, and belong to George Marcockos, before being confiscated by US law enforcement.[3] It was somewhat damaged by the search for drugs. It was estimated to be worth $75 million before the damage, but Chuck was able to buy it for $7 million.[4]

Layout Edit

The boat was redesigned by Chuck, with guidance from Steve's a Chuck's ladies to allow as many as 53 people on-board.

Dual Writer described the layout as follows:[5]

Three masters and six doubles on the middle deck and two big cabins on the lower level. The main deck salon is extremely big with another small salon toward the rear of the boat for a second access below. That is referred to as a sun deck although the big sun deck is over the main salon. The little salon is a perfect place to read a book, stare out at the water, or just contemplate.

The outdoor helm is actually a raised area between the main salon and the sun deck. It is raised a little and to one side (not centered) for visability.

It included:[6]
