Keith and Janet Cockell have owned Rebel Lady since 1999 and have reinstated the main saloon with classic leather furniture, woodslate blinds and tartan carpets which compliments the wood panelled interior.

In the twenty years, Keith and Janet have travelled to London, Paris, Brest and the Isle of Scilly, plus many other ports in the Channel Islands, Brittany, Devon and Cornwall.

She is stabilised by Vosper Fins and due to her weight and displacement hull, is very comfortable and seaworthy. Rebel Lady’s home port is St Katharine’s Docks, London having been a familiar site in Devon and Cornwall.


In 1949 the De Vries and Van Lent families came together with several other Dutch yards to approach the American market, where motor yacht sales were booming in the late 1940s. Feadship was introduced to the American public at the 1951 New York Boat Show. The high quality offered by Feadship impressed the public and attracted the attention of many famous people. These included Malcolm Forbes who launched the first of three, Highlander, Feadships in 1957.

Rebel Lady was imported into Newcastle in 1965 and until 2000 was kept on the Hamble at Moodys yard opposite the Jolly Sailor. She represents the last of the line of private motor boats that had the bridge at the stern. This marks the change from a crewed boat where the owner had little involvement, to a time when owners took control, needed greater visibility and the bridge was no longer the domain of the crew.

The crews quarters including the galley are forward of the central saloon. The saloon, the owner’s domain, leads to the owners state room, with bathroom en suite, and two twin cabins that share a head.
