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 56 perfectly combines a spacious and exquisitely finished interior with an exhilarating performance and is destined to become the new benchmark for her class.
Out on deck, the expansive cockpit features a teak dining table and generous U-shaped seating. Teak-laid steps either side of the transom lead to the bathing platform which can be optionally fitted with a raise/lower mechanism to ensure easy stowage, launch and recovery of a tender.
For panoramic views, dining can also be enjoyed on the spacious flybridge where further seating surrounds a second alfresco dining table. Twin helm seats are complemented by a versatile ‘L’ shaped companion seat to starboard which can be easily converted into a sun bed.
As with all Princess craft, the interior is crisp and contemporary and finished to the highest quality to create an interior ambience of a much larger vessel. The beautifully styled main saloon is bright and airy with large wrap around windows providing panoramic views. The open-plan arrangement features a U-shaped sofa and coffee table, with additional seating to port and a separate raised dining area forward, opposite the well equipped galley, ensuring a highly sociable layout.
The lower accommodation comprises of three beautifully appointed cabins including a full beam master stateroom and a spacious forward guest cabin, both with generous en-suites. The latest resin infusion technology allows for a less intrusive stiffening structure, increasing the space available for accommodation below decks, whilst a new single pane hull window offers unrivalled views when away from port. An optional aft cabin is available with its own WC, incorporating a single bed for crew or occasional guests.
