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 very latest in sports yacht technology and Princess unique deep-V hull give the V52 the perfect mix of agility, performance and flexible on-board comfort. With her enclosed deck saloon, she delivers significantly larger interior accommodation than a fully open model without sacrificing the thrill of the ride. Triple sliding glass doors and a large electrically controlled sunroof can be opened to the elements, or closed for a welcome respite. From the elegant panelling in the saloon to the convertible sunbed in the cockpit dining area, the V52 is the perfect combination of fine detailing and practical solutions. Below deck, adjacent to the fully fitted galley, the lower saloon provides a separate entertaining area which can be converted to provide additional berths for occasional guests. Alternatively, a permanent third guest cabin can be specified as can an aft crew cabin if required. The owner’s stateroom provides a spacious haven in which to relax, complete with ensuite bathroom. Large hull windows fill the cabin with light from each side, accentuating the ambience and quality of the materials and detailing that help to create a calm and luxurious space. There is also a second full-size stateroom forward which offers generous storage and an en-suite bathroom with separate stall shower.
