Princess Yachts announce the latest edition to their S Class Sportbridge range, the all-new Princess S65. Since its inception 10 years ago, the Princess S Class range has delivered a sublime combination of sports yacht styling and breathtaking performance with the sumptuous space and comfort of a flybridge yacht. The Princess S65 follows the distinct S class personality defined by its S hull graphic, strong graphical canopy features and powerful bulwark haunches.
Designed by the in-house Princess Design Studio in collaboration with naval architects Olesinski and Italian design house, Pininfarina, the S65 features a sleek, low-profile exterior that gives it a powerful, sporting stance. So much so that it almost completely hides the large sports-bridge above. Her clever design means there is still enough room to accommodate a large sunroof which, when opened, fills the saloon and lower helm with light and air for those open boating, ‘wind in the hair’ moments.
The ‘life outdoors’ theme continues into the generous and flexible cockpit which inspires relaxation and equipped with twin MAN V8 1200 or V12 1400 engines, giving a maximum speed of 36 knots she also delivers the exhilaration expected from the sporty S Class models.
The S class has opened Princess up to a thrill-seeking audience who are searching for speed, fun, and excitement but who refuse to compromise on space and flexibility. These yachts are about feeling connected to the water, bringing loved ones together and cruising in ultimate comfort and style. They exemplify all the ability, quality and design expected from a Princess and inject a unique level of performance, style and on-water attitude.
“Defined by Princess’ sweeping design language and sculpted exterior surfaces, the S65 illustrates a prominent yet sophisticated presence”, says Andy Lawrence, Director of Design at Princess Yachts. “Maintaining that low-profile, powerful stance while accommodating a spacious flybridge is a crucial element of the S Class design and I am delighted that we have created something that still looks sporty but provides more space on board than we have ever had in this size range.”
On approach to the S65, you are met with her teak laid Electro-hydraulic bathing platform and a garage to store a tender of up to 3.3m, with electro-hydraulic door and tender launch system with electric winch. The cockpit features U-shaped seating and dining area with folding teak table, and aft sunpad. The cockpit countertop to port connects to the galley countertop separated by an upswinging door which, when open, seamlessly connects the inside with the outside. There is an optional top-loading cool box, storage cupboard and to starboard there also is the option for either a servery unit, including 100l drawer fridge and bilge locker; or an L-shaped aft facing seat including bilge locker.
Leading to the flybridge is a stairway with teak step treads, opening the way for her spacious sportbridge deck on which owners can experience the S65’s immaculate handling and comfortable ride with unbroken views of the horizon. Featuring an optional table with infill cushions that can be transformed to create a large sun bed means guests can relax in comfort whilst enjoying the smooth ride that the S65 has to offer. The Sportbridge helm station features twin helm seats and dual station instrumentation and controls. On the right is a large U-shaped upholstered seating area with storage below and teak-double-fold dining table with built in drinks holders for added practicality.
