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 88 Motor Yacht epitomises everything that is Princess. She is powerful, agile and gracefully elegant and is ideally suited to long range cruising. Her unique deep-V hull design utilises the very latest resin infusion technology and so her performance and handling are both impeccable and efficient. The layout of the exterior spaces offers wonderful flexibility for enjoying life on deck. Wide side decks lead from the large cockpit to a secluded foredeck seating area and the flybridge provides exceptional space for relaxing or entertaining with a large dining table, bar and optional spa bath. On the main deck, a powered balcony can be specified which folds neatly from the starboard side deck, connecting the saloon with the anchorage through sliding glass doors. 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 servery access to the dining area. Below decks, owners can specify four or five en-suite cabins. A beautifully appointed forward VIP stateroom, starboard double and twin port cabin are accompanied by either a palatial full beam stateroom or two further double cabins as required. Crew are accommodated aft of the machinery space where there are substantial quarters comprising of a captains double cabin, a twin cabin and a crew mess area. This can be alternatively arranged to accommodate three crew cabins if required.
