HMY MarketWatch: Why Late-Model Princess Yachts Are in High Demand
Strong resale values and extraordinary owner satisfaction make used models hard to find.
It’s clear the demand for late-model luxury yachts over 60 feet is strong with very few vessels on the market. This is a market segment dominated by foreign builders representing various levels of technical expertise, distribution, and quality. At the pinnacle of this exclusive market resides Princess Yachts, a leader in product innovation and yacht building excellence. From their legendary Flybridge range and thrilling V-Class sport yachts — to their long-range motor yachts and ground-breaking M-Class superyachts — Princess Yachts has long been recognized for historic levels of owner satisfaction and best-in-class resale values. It’s because of these brand characteristics that Princess owners tend to keep their boats longer than owners of less esteemed yachting brands.
It’s a rare occurrence to find a year-old Princess yacht listed for sale. Rarer still is to find three such listings, all from the same brokerage firm. But that’s the reality with the three 2019 Princess models profiled below. These like-new HMY listings represent an exceptional buying opportunity for anyone considering the purchase of a late-model Princess yacht. Conveniently located in South Florida, we invite you to contact an HMY broker for complete information on any of these prestigious luxury yachts.
