Designed in partnership with world-famous Ben Ainslie Racing Technologies and Pininfarina, “the R35 is a powerful expression of intent from a company hitting a rich vein of form, as Princess Yachts experiences record financial results and order books”.

The Princess V60, dynamic yet agile, is the latest addition to the award-winning V Class range, a progressive sports yacht that is capable of speeds up to 38 knots and pushes the boundaries of design and innovation to ensure fuel and space efficiencies. This vessel has three cabins for six guests. The owners stateroom comes complete with ensuite and sofa. It incorporates an electric sliding sunroof above an open-plan salon, and alternative al fresco
dining is also encouraged in the expansive cockpit aft. The Flybridge class of luxury yachts really established the Princess brand as a pioneering force, and the new Princess 70 continues this clean, modern, elegantly proportioned look while meeting the demand for flexible and practical living when passage-making.

A generous flybridge, innovative principal deck with panoramic windows, and lower deck where four beautifully-appointed cabins have been created, including a full beam master stateroom, are among the features.
