In the absence of the 2022 boot Düsseldorf show, Princess Yachts are delighted to host the first Princess Exclusive event in their brand home, Plymouth. This invitation-only 9 day event takes place in the unique location of Royal William Yard where the manufacturer will host an 8-yacht line up.
Discover slot #1 of the Princess X80, the Princess V50 design story and find out more about what’s coming up for Princess in 2022.
About the X80
The beautifully sculpted surfaces and long flowing design lines of the X95 are carried through into her sister ship, the X80. Due to take to the water in Autumn 2021, the X80 becomes the second member of the X Class ‘Superfly’ family. The X80 has a ‘super flybridge’ providing in excess of 30% more useful interior space onboard than a traditional flybridge yacht of its length and is available with an optional main deck master stateroom which includes a private owner’s sundeck. The X80’s capabilities for adventure provides the opportunity to explore cruising grounds further afield with the option of a long range 8,800 litre tank.
The stature of the X80 profile is defined through the increased height of the bulwarks, topsides and enclosed wheelhouse. Her ‘S’ shaped canopy flows into the flybridge deck to balance the visual weight and disguise the volume of the expansive sky lounge. The X80 brings the outside in through the maximisation of glazing which flows along the entire length of the main deck encasing the saloon, galley and forward dining area. The use of light and innovative design continues below decks where 8 guests are accommodated across 4 en-suite cabins, a full beam master stateroom located amidships, a forward guest stateroom, a double guest to starboard and a twin cabin to port. Located aft of the main accommodation is the crew quarters which can accommodate 3 crew with the standard layout. Life on-board the X80 really is unlike that of any other boat of its size.
About the V50
The all-new V50 is installed with state-of-the-art technology to provide an ease of ownership which makes boating more accessible to new owners. An intuitive IPS system and joystick allows for easy piloting, whilst the addition of the fully integrated Volvo Penta assisted docking system can assist in the management of external factors such as wind, current and manoeuvring in crowded marinas. Additional technology includes premium audio from Naim; plus the new Garmin On-Deck smart boat system, an integrated remote connectivity solution which tracks, monitors and controls selected on-board systems from virtually anywhere via a smartphone app.
When entertaining, the extended cockpit provides exceptional outdoor living space in which to create unforgettable experiences. The elongated canopy provides a shaded area to escape the heat of the sun whilst being in a position to fully appreciate the yacht’s balanced performance.
Below deck, a bright, modern open galley sits opposite a sociable entertaining space. Four guests enjoy two beautifully appointed cabins that are filled with natural light from the extensive hull glazing, with a full-beam master stateroom situated amidships. The forward en-suite has additional access to the saloon for use as a day head when required.
