Be on the Lookout for Lady Isabelle

Lady Isabelle was in immaculate condition when stolen from the South of France in October.

Caribbean sailors, have you seen this boat? She is the Scorpio 72 Lady Isabelle. Having been stolen last October from an anchorage in the South of France, she was later spotted in the Canary Islands and was seen very recently in the West Indies (sorry, no details on the location).


French Diplomat Jean Vaury, a sailor who used to be stationed in San Francisco, reached out to us to request that we spread the word in hopes that his countryman’s yacht can be recovered. The name may have been changed, of course, but the lines of this design are easily recognizable. 

If you spot Lady Isabelle, contact local authorities and/or French consular personnel immediately. (Or contact us here at Latitude if you get no help elsewhere.)
