If a social register existed for luxury cruising yachts, the Princess brand would be a mainstay on the list. Over the years, this English builder has brought many elegantly styled models to market, each marked by an impeccable build quality. In addition to its globally popular flybridge motor yacht range (sized from 42 to 98 feet), Princess offers V-Class sport yachts (39 to 85 feet) designed for performance cruising. More recently, the builder entered the superyacht market with the debut of its M-Class series that’s comprised of the
32 Meter and the new 40 Meter tri-deck, a landmark model for the yard as it’s the largest production-built motoryacht ever made in England—and also the largest resin-infused hull built in Britain.
The new Princess 52 is a powerful and agile craft with extraordinary volume for her size. Her unique deep-V hull design provides exceptional seakeeping while reducing planing speeds for an efficient performance across a broad speed range. Out on deck the spacious cockpit is fitted with a large teak dining table and generous seating providing the perfect place to relax in the shade. A second alfresco dining table is situated on the flybridge which, with extensive seating, convertible sunbed and optional wetbar, is ideal for entertaining. Wide side decks and teak-laid steps ensure safe movement around the boat and an optional hydraulic raise/lower mechanism transforms the bathing platform into a submersible beach and operates as a simple and effective launch and recovery system for a tender. As with all Princess craft, the attention to detail and quality of finish throughout her interior is of the highest standard, large windows fill the main deck with natural light and ensure wonderful views and excellent visibility for the lower helm. The galley is situated aft of the saloon creating a highly sociable atmosphere whether entertaining guests in the cockpit or around the large dining table inside. Placing the galley on the main deck also allows for three very spacious and well appointed cabins below. The owner’s cabin is situated amidships enjoying panoramic windows to both sides and the forward VIP and spacious starboard twin complete the accommodation. An additional aft cabin can also be specified.
