The Princess Yachts S65 is a hybrid between the English builder’s Flybridge Motor Yacht and V Class lines. It’s a four-stateroom, three-head affair with an aft sports bridge that allows for a sunroof above the salon. The master has a full-beam head and walk-in closet. There’s room for six more people to sleep in two twin-berth staterooms and a VIP. The galley up is centered between the cockpit and salon.
The S65 we got aboard had twin 1,400 hp MAN V-12s, and top hop was 35 knots. As of December, four S65s were available, ranging from $2,700,000 to $3,399,000.
From the Archive
“The S65 has the galley up and centered between the cockpit and salon, which turns the main deck into party central. Adding to this are sliding doors leading to the cockpit. The doors nest into pockets out of sight, and the window by the galley tilts up electrically. Voilà! Completely open from the cockpit settee past the galley, past two seating areas with tables to the forward windshield. Slide the sunroof open, and you have a 65-foot runabout.”
