Manufacturer Info



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.

Boat Description

With her powerful IPS engines, you’ll experience exceptional V Class performance, efficiency and
manoeuvrability, as well as all the exquisite refinement you’d expect from a Princess.
The enclosed main deck features a spacious saloon, which provides a wonderful escape from the heat of the day. At the same time with a large powered roof and triple-sliding doors, you can simply transform this area for true ‘open boating’. The bathing platform is large enough to stow a tender and can be fitted with a raise/lower mechanism, making water sports easily accessible for you and your guests.
