Princess Yachts’ S80 Flagship: A Flawless Balance of Sport and Style
Throughout their S-class, Princess Yachts have highlighted their keen ability to harmoniously blend relaxation and exhilaration. We’ve come to expect spacious decks and stylish finishes alongside outstanding power and performance, and the newest addition to the series is no exception. The S80 Sportbridge, which was revealed at the Palm Beach International Boat Show this March, will become the line’s new flagship. Designed by iconic naval architect Oleniski and Italian design team Pininfarina, the vessel represents all the best features of Princess Yachts, combined into one exquisite package.
Offering a deck that sits close to the water and a streamlined layout, the S80 showcases Princess Yachts’ masterful rendering of the sportbridge. Equipped with large, U-shaped seating, a convertible dining table, wet bar, and barbecue, the space beckons you to enjoy the outdoors without compromising on entertainment. The forward dining area is shielded by the salon glazing to offer shelter against the wind without sacrificing your view. With sleek, seamless lines, the yacht’s main deck flows smoothly, featuring numerous options for sunbathing and easy navigation between lounging and dining areas. A large, sliding door leads from the main deck to the interior. A teak deck, aft-facing loveseat, and elongated canopy round out the exterior features.
Owners have the option to operate the S80 with an open salon or choose an enclosed helm which can accommodate up to three crew members. Yet, with superb visibility, joystick control, and exceptional maneuverability, it’s certainly feasible for owners to take the helm themselves. Below deck, the yacht features four well-appointed en-suite cabins and a twin cabin for additional guests or crew members. Stateroom finishes are available in four natural wood options. From the spacious, full-beam master suite to the inviting salon, every interior detail is marked by the elegance which has become synonymous with the Princess name. A dedicated staircase extends from a private lobby to the owner’s stateroom.
In addition to its plentiful seating, the S80 has all of the bells and whistles that make yachting truly enjoyable. A large garage offers ample space for water toys, while a set of teak stairs descends to an electro-hydraulic bathing platform. After a day of watersports, you can enjoy a movie with a drink in hand via the flybridge’s outdoor cinema, featuring a rise-and-fall television. The yacht also offers a state-of-the-art sound system.
While the S80 was clearly built with entertainment in mind, it doesn’t compromise on performance. Twin MAN V12 1900s come standard, but you also have the option to upgrade to V12 2000s. With a top speed of 34 knots and a cruising speed within the upper 20-knot range, the yacht delivers a thrilling passenger experience of an express cruiser. Like the other vessels in the S-class, the S80 was designed with a resin-infused hull to optimize fuel efficiency.
