Stepping onto the Princess V65’s swim platform, guests are immediately greeted by one of the yacht’s two sun pads. The aft sun pad sits atop the transom, backing up to the aft cockpit seating. The cockpit has a U-shaped settee aft with a folding table and loose chairs creating an alfresco dining space for up to six.
In the salon, there is a six-person U-shaped settee and ottoman to enjoy casual conversation after a day on the water. A hidden flat-screen TV is abaft the two-seat helm station. The salon has warm satin-finish walnut, enhanced further by an abundance of natural sunlight coming in via the waist-to-ceiling windows that surround it. There is also a retractable sunroof that has three settings to let the skipper dial in the desired amount of sunlight.
The galley, which is positioned aft and to port, has a window opening to the cockpit. The galley is equipped with a wine refrigerator, a sink, a garbage disposal, an electric cooktop and an oven. When the galley’s window and sliding glass door are open, spaces seemingly merge on the V65 as the cockpit flows into the open galley. There is also a dinette across from the galley.
Side decks with high rails provide safe passage to Chony’s foredeck, which has a three-person U-shaped settee abaft a two-person adjustable sun pad. The lounge offers a quiet spot for serious rest and relaxation.
All of the V65’s sleeping accommodations are belowdecks. There is a full-beam owners’ stateroom amidships with a centerline queen berth, a flat-screen TV, a sofa and an en suite head. Forward of the master and to port is a guest stateroom with single bunks. A second guest stateroom is to starboard with twin berths that can be pushed together to form a double. The forepeak VIP stateroom has a queen berth and an en suite head.
Twin MAN V12 diesels provide power for Chony, giving it a reported top hop of 37 knots and a 29-knot cruising speed. The engines had 400-hour servicing completed by Ace Marine in Palm Beach, Florida.
