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 M Class long-range cruising yachts herald a bold new era for Princess, the pinnacle of over 45 years of innovation and engineering excellence.
This new range of technically advanced yachts has already stamped the Princess marque firmly on the 100 ft-plus market.
The flagship Princess 40M is a sublime expanse of interior and exterior living space which can comfortably accommodate up to twelve guests and seven crew in complete privacy. Constructed to world-class standards and with enviable presence, she delivers class-leading levels of luxury and build detailing. She also offers enormous scope for customisation, enabling owners to create their ultimate yacht. Sleek looks disguise the tri-deck yacht’s enormous interior which offers considerably more volume than many rivals of the same length, whilst great attention has been paid to achieving the highest recognised standards for quietness and comfort. Drop down balconies transform the main saloon into a spectacular area for entertaining and relaxing with a formal dining area enjoying extensive views through panoramic windows. The magnificent owners suite takes pride of place forward of the main deck and is exceptionally spacious with a palatial bathroom which can be specified as individual ‘his and hers’ if required. It also features expansive walk-in wardrobes and an ante-room which owners can specify to suit their requirements. Space below deck is exceptional and can accommodate up to five additional staterooms with ease. Attention to detail, and to guest comfort, are evident throughout, in everything right down to the under floor heating in all guest bathrooms. A grand central staircase links each deck from the sundeck to the lower accommodation and the crew can circulate around the boat using their own discrete stairway between decks. Superb sea-keeping is augmented with an impressive cruising range, achieved through engineered weight reduction and the latest infused moulding technology.
