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.
Powerful, agile and gracefully elegant, the 85 Motor Yacht is ideally suited to longrange cruising. A deep-V hull and the use of draftreducing propeller tunnels ensure superior seakeeping and handling with exceptional visibility from both helm positions. Her layout provides wonderful flexibility for enjoying life on deck, with a secluded foredeck seating area, large cockpit and spacious flybridge that can be fitted with an optional hardtop as required. The interior is beautifully styled with the finest fabrics and finishes throughout and includes an expansive main deck with dedicated access for crew to all key areas without the need to disturb the guest areas. Below decks, there are four en-suite staterooms which owners can specify with either a two or three double cabin arrangement. Located aft of the machinery space there are substantial crew quarters comprising of a captain’s double cabin, a twin cabin and a mess area.
