Based on a particularly successful Benetti's naval platform, Lady Candy has been built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.  Her waterline length is 47.6 metres at full load and her beam 10.6 metres. She can carry 18,000 litres of fresh water and 130,000 litres of fuel. Her maximum speed at half-load is 15.5 knots with a cruise speed of about 15 knots in the same conditions. Her range is 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots, thus capable of crossing the Pacific Ocean.
