AMIkids Yacht Donation Program

6,000 Yachts, 50 years.

Second Gallant Lady contributed to AMIkids

by Jorge Mahauad | Jul 07, 2020
Jeff Stanley at Gilman Yachts just facilitated the contribution of Comanche, an 87' 1985 Feadship Yachtfish.

Comanche was built as the younger of two GALLANT LADY Feadship Sportfisherman yachts. The donation of her older sister (PATRIOT) to AMIkids in 2014 is now one of the landmarks signaling the beginnings of the 'modern' AMIkids Yacht Donation program.

PATRIOT - 1984   87' Feadship

When Comanche and Patriot were built, there were no large pedigree "Yacht Fisherman" on the water. Today, large sportfish like these are an exquisite market, almost a collectible. The trends have dictated newer, larger, and faster Sportfisherman, yet none have the class, grace, or quality of a Feadship. 

Work and craftsmanship have gone into upgrading her systems and features, yet her original Feadship features remain intact.

Comanche represents a fabulous opportunity for the modern sportfishing aficionado interested in a medium-sized classic yacht-fish with all the features and comfort of state or the art vessels.  Read article

"We always knew about AMIkids, but in 2019 I became involved in a transaction and took an interest to learn about the work various schools do. It struck me —supporting AMIkids is a way in which I can pay-back.

I got involved in helping kids in rough environments make better choices and get on a better route to success. I was happy to be invited to join the board of trustees and help contribute in the ways that I can."

— Neil Emmott, Partner at Superyacht Sales and Charter
