Princess 20M

Princess to debut more new models than ever in 2013 model year

Princess 40 Meter

From the European and US premiere of the Princess 40 Meter and the US debut of the V39 and V57 this fall, to the launch and announcement of five other new models in the coming months, Princess Yachts International continues an aggressive new model development program for the coming model year.

As a proud 17-year strategic partner as exclusive distributor for the United States, Canada, Central America, and Caribbean markets, Viking Sport Cruisers will present the largest showcase of Princess yachts to date in North America at the upcoming 2012 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show in an all new location at Face Dock 3, Space 3A-I.

Princess 40 Meter

Combining an impressive gross tonnage of 395gt, with a sleek and purposeful profile, the 40M offers six-star accommodation for up to 12 guests, with well-appointed cabins for up to seven crew and the largest internal volume in her class. Everything about this stunning yacht is measured in superlatives, from its massive 230kg anchors at the bow to the voluminous garage in the stern, which has space not just for a 6.2-metre tender, but for two personal watercraft as well. Within the elegant parameters of the 40M’s hull and superstructure, owners of course have almost carte blanche to create the yacht of their dreams no two will ever be alike. There is an impressive variety of layout options to choose from either four or five guest cabins on the lower deck, for example and you can choose to have a cinema instead of one of the midships cabins down below, and a gym in place of the other one.

The focal point of the yacht will undoubtedly be the magnificent main deck with a beautifully appointed saloon and formal dining area surrounded by vast windows and hydraulically folding balconies on both sides of the saloon which are fitted as standard. Forward of the main deck is the owner’s suite, occupying the full beam of the hull as the side decks are raised at this point. The suite is accessed through a versatile ante-room which can be specified as an office, private TV room, a reading room or to suit the owner’s personal requirements. Forward, an opulent single or matching pair of bathrooms is accessed off the dressing area which also features two substantial walk-in wardrobes.

On the upper deck there is an elegant ‘sky lounge’ and an additional exterior dining area for private drinks and dinners and a curved stairway leads up to the palatial sun deck complete with extensive bar, seating, sunbathing and a huge spa tub. The enormous professional galley was designed to the exacting brief of a professional chef and is impressively equipped with two catering-size fridge-freezers, a hot and cold chef’s pass and a huge pantry. To ensure everything is served swiftly and easily there is even a dumb-waiter which runs from the main deck to both the upper deck and sun deck above.

The owner of the first 40M, Imperial Princess, has selected the five-cabin option, with two VIP staterooms and two twin-berth en-suites on the lower deck. The interior is a wonderful collection of contrasting tones, textures and surfaces, full of visual and tactile treats, set off to perfection by the huge areas of window, which will fill both the main deck and accommodation areas with daylight.

The wheelhouse is equally impressive with a vast ‘glass bridge’ incorporating the control and monitoring system in a stunning console and the captain’s cabin is also situated here adjourning the helm. Power comes from a pair of MTU 12V diesels, which will propel her to speeds of up to 22 knots. Two 80kW generators share the machinery space, where the automatic fuel handling system is sensitive not just to the needs of the engine and generators, but to the trim of the hull as well.

The 40M has been designed and built using some of the most advanced technologies and techniques seen in boat building today from state-of-the-art Computer Fluid Dynamics ensuring even the most intricate of detail is considered prior to any tooling being made, to the highly developed resin infusion process to produce the hull and entire superstructure which provides significant benefits to vessel weight and rigidity so improving overall performance and efficiency. The company has also begun development of the recently acquired South Yard site, part of the historic Naval Shipyard in Plymouth where the impressive new 40 metre facility is located and where hull #2 is already progressing well. South Yard is also home to the Princess 98 Motor Yacht and the 32M and when plans are complete, the new site will represent some of the most advanced superyacht facilities in the world.

With class leading levels of standard specification throughout, this magnificent tri-deck, semi-custom superyacht, is a dramatic new chapter for Princess and represents a culmination of the skills and passion of one of Europe’s most experienced boatyards. It is truly a landmark project not just for Princess Yachts, but for British yacht-building.

Princess V39

For the first time in over a decade, there is a new Princess below 40 feet opening up a whole new category for the company and providing a very welcome proposition for those who prefer smaller craft yet still demand the very best in style, performance and quality in short a Princess.

As with all the latest Princess models, her hull and deck have been produced using the resin infusion technology to reduce weight, increase torsional strength and improve efficiency. This coupled with a unique hull design and powerful Volvo D6-330 engines ensures the new V39 is both exhilarating and economical with quick transition to plane and highly efficient cruising speeds.

Her interior is incredibly light and spacious and, as with every Princess, she is finished with the finest materials, craftsmanship and detailing throughout providing the feeling of a much larger craft. The saloon and well equipped galley combine for a highly sociable entertaining space and both cabins are generously proportioned and contemporary styled. The forward cabin has an ensuite bathroom with secondary access to the saloon whilst the aft cabin can be fitted with optional sliding berths to provide easy conversion to a double when required. She has also been designed to be as practical as she is elegant with an expansive teak-laid cockpit complete with large wetbar and generous seating, a transom platform large enough to accommodate a tender and ample storage throughout.

The new V39 is set to redefine the standard for her size category and in keeping with the rest of the Princess V Class range is truly a sport cruiser without compromise.

Princess V57

Her spacious main deck saloon with large opening sunroof and triple sliding doors connects beautifully to the aft cockpit to provide a truly exhilarating ‘open boating’ experience. Yet, with doors and roof closed, also offers the perfect haven to escape from the heat of the day without sacrificing the wonderful views. The cockpit, with its generous U-shaped seating and teak table is the perfect place to relax or soak up the sun on the large sunbed beneath which is a tender garage for a 3.2m Jet-RIB. There is also an electro-hydraulic platform as standard for easy launch and recovery of the tender. Below deck, the use of space and ingenious design give the V57 the feel of a much larger craft. The galley is stylishly equipped and finished, and the three light-filled cabins all have spacious en-suite bathrooms. The owner’s stateroom is positioned aft where it enjoys the full beam, the starboard guest cabin has two full size single berths, while the forward double cabin can be fitted with optional scissor berths (twin or double) for greater flexibility. Additionally a lower dinette can be fitted in lieu of the starboard bathroom to provide an alternative dining or entertaining space for larger families.

With a spacious layout, flexible accommodation and a performance capable of 36 knots, the new Princess V57 is set to redefine the class for large sports cruisers.
