The New Princess S78 Commands Attention And Inspires Relaxation

The New Princess S78 Commands Attention And Inspires Relaxation

By Michael Cummins   August 30, 2018

HMY broker Ale Navarro makes no bones about what he thinks of the newest addition to the stylish Princess S Class — “the S78 will arouse everyone.”

He’s right. The Princess S78 is the largest of the S Class (which also includes the sporty and nimble S65 and S60 models) and strikes an impeccable balance between style, form, function, and performance. She’s made for play and entertaining, while also inviting relaxation with her spacious sportbridge and aft deck.




Every S78 that Princess Yachts America orders comes with the deluxe package, which includes options such as a gyro, underwater lights, and water maker. For those who want even more customization, from layout to design, owners can sit down with the Princess design team and do as they please.

One of the biggest draws of the S78 is the monstrously spacious aft deck. As Ale states, “the S78’s aft deck size is what you’d typically find on a 90’ yacht.” Seamlessly connected to the galley and salon, it creates a wide-open versatile space.

To make entertaining in that space even more enjoyable, Princess installed a high-end NAIM Audio sound system as standard. “No other boat 100’ or smaller can compare to it,” exclaims Ale.

As loud as the audio system can get, you won’t need it to drown out any engine noise. The available Twin MAN V12 (2 x 1,900mhp) engines silently propel this beautiful, elegant vessel effortlessly across the water with smooth and incredible acceleration and a top of speed of 39 knots.



Command the ocean, and invite relaxation, from the airy sportbridge. The sportbridge helm station features repeat navigation equipment, and the low-profile sofas (which convert to sunpads) create the feeling of a lounge area next to a swimming pool.

With the open space, “you don’t feel trapped at all like in other sport bridges,” says Ale




The well-equipped, open galley is the connector to the amazing aft deck and spacious salon. It’s perfect for entertaining, allowing full connections with guests who are lounging in either spot.

While there’s action in the galley, guests can relax on the versatile L-shaped seating that’s wrapped around a creative sliding glass table.



The deck salon has tons of volume for a 78’ boat, due in part to Princess’ amazing and innovative ways of setting the furniture. The high ceilings and full-length side windows also play a huge role in creating the open airiness of the space, providing 360-degree views and allowing tons of natural light to brighten the space.

Additionally, there are no steps from the aft deck all the way to the main deck helm station, further enhancing the expansive feel.




The sleek, striking, and provocative lines of the S78 immediately demand attention. Add to that what Ale considers “the best exterior layout in its class” and it’s easy to see how this powerful and exquisite vessel is primed to dominate the sportbridge market.

Highlights include a huge swim platform, an amazing bow seating area with sunpads, and a cockpit with U-shaped configurable seating area with a folding teak table and twin sunbeds.




The S78 features room for eight guests in four gorgeous en suite cabins with loads of natural light—master stateroom, VIP queen bed, stateroom queen bed, and stateroom twin beds—plus a further aft cabin with room for 2-3 crew.
