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.
An elegant, contemporary profile and a characteristic deep-V hull combine in the 78 Motor Yacht to deliver a thoroughbred performance and an assured, stable ride. The latest resin infusion technology enables an engineered weight reduction to achieve higher speeds, lower fuel consumption and an increased cruising range while raised bulwarks and deep side decks confirm she is a motor yacht of real stature. Her exterior layout is spacious and flexible with a secluded foredeck seating and sunbathing area, a spacious cockpit and vast flybridge which can accommodate an optional spa bath and hardtop as required. A high capacity crane is also located here for the secure and convenient stowage of tender or jet ski, with additional stowage on the submersible transom platform below. As with all Princess Motor Yachts, her interior is spacious, light filled and beautifully detailed. An elegant saloon leads to a formal dining area adjacent to the galley which can be fully opened to create a highly sociable atmosphere or separated via a powered bulk-head when privacy is required. Discrete access for crew has also been considered with side doors to both the galley and helm. The expansive lower accommodation is impeccably appointed and features four en-suite cabins with a spacious owner’s stateroom amidships, and three further guest cabins which can be configured with two doubles and one twin or alternatively, sliding berths can be fitted as an option to the starboard cabin providing the ultimate flexibility.
