Alan Sugar is selling his 181ft, £13 million superyacht – but while it waits for a buyer it was spotted on the waters in the blistering Bank Holiday heatwave.

The glitzy gin palace, named Lady A after his wife, Ann, was seen on the Thames by Tower Bridge as temperatures soared to 28C, the hottest May holiday weekend in 40 years. 

The luxurious boat includes a Jacuzzi and sleeps up to 12 guests.

According to the Sunday Times Rich List, the 70-year-old tycoon, who is based in Chigwell, Essex, has a fortune of £1.25 billion. 

Sugar bought the yacht in 2015 for an undisclosed sum and renamed her Lady A, even though his wife, Ann, should correctly be referred to only as Lady Sugar or Lady S.

The couple have been married since 1968 and have two sons and a daughter.

The yacht has marble sculptures on the top deck, one twin guest and four double cabins, plus a state room that seats 12.

It was built in 1986 and named Southern Cross by its first owner, Australian tycoon Alan Bond, who sold her when he went bankrupt

The vessel is available for charter over the coming months, with prices starting at an eye watering £12,500 per week.

An advert for renting the boat reads: ‘Impressive leisure and entertainment facilities make her the ideal charter yacht for socialising and entertaining with family and friends. 

It has a cruising speed of 26 knots.
