The prestigious British shipyard, Princess Yachts, well known for its bold creativity, sophistication and elegance, combining state-of-the-art design with unparalleled luxury, will present three of their head-turning contemporary vessels at the on-water event during the upcoming London Yacht, Jet and Prestige Car Show 2015. These will include motor yacht Princess V72, luxury yacht Princess 88, as well as superyacht Princess 98.
Step inside a Princess yacht and you enter into a world that reflects their unique insight into style, culture and design. Where the highest levels of quality and unparalleled luxury always come as standard, and the strength of their 50-year heritage ensures that their style never stands still.
Motor yacht Princess 98 epitomises everything Princess. Superb craftsmanship, the latest technological innovation and that unmistakeable Princess styling.
The vast flybridge offers great opportunity for customisation and is the ideal entertaining space. The cockpit area can be specified with an optional hardtop and the foredeck provides not just seclusion but also a huge seating area.
There is plenty of room to store a tender and the large transom garage can house a jet ski and an electro-hydraulic bathing platform which, when not launching the tender or jet ski, can be used as a submerged swimming or diving platform.
The interior of luxury yacht Princess 98 is beautifully finished to the highest standards and panoramic windows ensure the saloon and dining area are light and open with views from every position. The impressive wheelhouse includes an additional dinette for enjoying breakfast or drinks whilst underway. Both the helm and the highly specified galley adjacent can be accessed by crew from the side decks to ensure the utmost privacy for guests.
Accommodation on the lower deck can be configured for eight or ten guests and each cabin is spacious and sumptuously appointed. The owner’s suite is positioned amidships and makes full use of the Princess 98 yacht’s generous beam where large hull windows provide exceptional views beyond. Crew are accommodated in separate quarters aft of the machinery space with a choice of configurations for up to six.
Influenced by the design of the flagship Princess 40M (example is charter yacht Imperial Princess), the resin-infused hybrid hull shape balances strong performance and handling whilst also keeping a watchful eye on fuel efficiency.
A lovely new design feature on the luxury motor yacht Princess 88 is the optional folding balcony on the starboard side of the saloon. Sliding double doors connect this terrace to the saloon, so there truly is no better place to watch the sunset before stepping in for dinner!
Opposing benches and a spacious sunpad means that there is plenty of space at the bow of the ship. The vast flybridge and huge cockpit area means that there is plenty of space to dine and entertain. If you want to go that step further, there is the option of having a hot tub!
The interior styling and detailing is exceptional with the finest fabrics and finishes adopted throughout. The expansive saloon and formal dining area are exquisitely furnished and bathed in light from large panoramic windows either side. The wheelhouse and highly equipped galley are separated from the main guest areas with discrete crew access ensuring the utmost privacy, including an independent service access to the dining area.
Accommodation comprises four cabins with a VIP ensuite in the bow of the boat, a double and a twin as well as a sumptuous master cabin amidships. The new frameless hull windows as well as the his and hers sinks in the ensuite make this a truly special cabin. A five cabin layout is also possible with the master split into two smaller cabins.
There is a generous space for the crew aft of the machinery and three engine options. Another impressive feature of this motor yacht is its speed; a top speed of 30 knots – very impressive for a boat that displaces the best part of 70 tonnes!
The Princess V72 yacht is an exceptional sports yacht delivering the perfect balance of high speed thrills and sophisticated elegance.
The latest infusion technology and modified deep-V hull delivers new levels of performance and handling while her sleek profile hides an incredibly spacious and beautifully detailed interior.
Sliding glass doors open from the saloon onto an expansive cockpit where the U-shaped sofa, teak dining table and substantial wetbar enjoy the shade from the extended superstructure above. A wide sunbed extends over the aft deck which also accommodates both the tender garage and spacious twin en-suite crew cabin.
The submersible bathing platform makes launching the tender or swimming from the anchorage a delight and is also large enough stow a tender or jet ski. Additional sunbathing and seating areas are located on the foredeck which is a perfect spot for a relaxing escape.
Central to her interior styling is the wonderful layout of the main deck, with its large enclosed saloon, panoramic windows and contemporary design. The focal point is an elegant circular dinette which sits beneath the sliding sunroof and creates an ideal place to enjoy breakfast or drink in the view, whether in harbour or underway.
Below decks, three beautifully appointed en-suite cabins provide highly spacious accommodation, all finished with the finest materials and detail. The starboard twin cabin can also be fitted with a powered sliding berth to create a third double making this a highly flexible layout.
