The Princess Yachts Lineup at FLIBS 2021
The largest in-water boat show in the world, the 62nd annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show kicks off October 27-31, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From yacht builders and designers to exotic cars and brokerage yachts, FLIBS has something for everyone. The five-day event will bring together hundreds of exhibitors from the yachting industry and beyond, across nearly 90 acres of outdoor exhibition space, set between the beach and Fort Lauderdale's vast network of waterways.
HMY Yacht Sales professionals will be on-site at the Princess Yachts display to assist clients in finding the yacht of their dreams. Located on Facedock 10 the following models will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Clever styling, a spacious open-plan interior, and innovative foredeck seating set this UK beauty apart from any other competitive yacht in her class. The F62 was designed to cater to both social and private settings. Forward of the galley and two steps up, the salon is bathed in natural light thanks to huge full-length side windows. Replete with plush seating and clever design touches, the salon is unusually spacious for a 62-foot yacht. There are three staterooms below, including an opulent full-beam master with a settee, seating table, and two large hull windows. Of special note, the berths in the starboard guest cabin slide together at the push of a button. The F62's flybridge is equipped with a full wet bar and barbecue as well as a unique circular seating area that converts into additional sun pads. A fabric sliding roof integrated into the hardtop deploys electrically. The bow has an innovative multi-seat social area with twin sunbeds forward and a forward-facing lounge aft, separated by a small walkway. Volvo 1,000 engines reach a top speed of 30 knots. MAN 1,200hp V8 diesels reach a top speed in the low to the mid-30-knot range.
A fusion of power and luxury, the four-stateroom V65 is a tour de force of Princess engineering and innovation. With a top speed in excess of 35 knots, she’s also one of the best open water performers in this class. The V65’s spacious salon—easily the most impressive part of the boat—can be climate controlled or opened to the elements via triple sliding aft doors and a retractable sunroof. The aft galley layout makes serving drinks and food to the cockpit easy and convenient. Below deck, eight guests enjoy four beautifully appointed en-suite cabins including a full-beam amidships master and spacious VIP suite forward. Two additional staterooms are between the master and VIP, one with over-under bunks and the other with side-by-side beds. Crew quarters are aft, next to the engine room, with a head and small galley. The roomy cockpit features a U-shaped lounge that seats six comfortably. The hydraulic swim platform lowers into the water creating your own private beachside deck. A tender launch system in the garage is standard. MAN 1,400hp V12 diesels reach a top speed of 35–36 knots.
The Princess Y72 will be making its North American Debut at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this October!
Princess recently launched the Y72, the new entry-level model for its sophisticated Y-Class series of luxury motor yachts. Designed by the Princess Design Studio in collaboration with naval architects Olesinski and Italian design house, Pininfarina, the Y72 encapsulates the quality and design features seen on larger yachts in the Y-Class series. Designed for outdoor living, the cockpit seamlessly connects to the main salon via a sliding glass door opening to the starboard. Her spacious salon has a sociable layout with a fully equipped bar area and open plan galley aft. Accommodations for eight are provided via four well-appointed en suite cabins with the opulent full-beam master stateroom accessed from a private stairway in the salon. Crew quarters are aft of the engine room. Moving forward of the flybridge, the bow area offers a U-shaped seating area and a large sunpad. An aft-mounted, raise/lower swim platform to accommodate and deploy a tender is an ideal base to enjoy watersports. The Y72 is fitted with MAN 1,400hp or 1,650hp MAN engines, powering the yacht up to 32–34 knots. Options include gyro or fin stabilization.
The flagship of the S-Class series, the S78 combines motor yacht luxury and sportyacht performance in a yacht of exceptional beauty. The aft galley interior features three en suite guest cabins forward and a full-beam master suite amidships. The entire main deck area is arranged on a single level from the cockpit forward to the salon, and floor-to-ceiling side windows provide panoramic views from the central seating area. The huge flybridge is set up for entertaining and lounging with seating for up to a dozen guests. Even with a flybridge the S78 still has a retractable sunroof over the lower helm position. The cockpit is especially versatile with modular seating allowing for several entertainment options. A garage beneath the port sunpad houses a 15-foot tender, and the hydraulic swim platform is perfect for watersports. Crew quarters are accessed from the swim platform. Of special note: A premium NAIM sound system is integrated into the flybridge, salon, cockpit, and master stateroom providing a fully synchronized multi-zone music experience. No lightweight, MAN 1,900 V12 diesels deliver a best-in-class top speed of 36–38 knots.
An elegant addition to the new Princess Y Class series, the Y78 offers efficient, agile cruising combined with a spacious interior and dynamic new styling. Natural light flows through the main deck via the extended window lines, and a unique full-height window on the port side makes the dining area a spectacular entertaining space. The galley is separated from the spacious open-plan living space by sliding glass panels, keeping the chef in touch with guests. The contemporary design of the salon opens out to a well-equipped cockpit via flush sliding patio doors to provide an incredibly spacious area for entertaining. Forward on the lower deck, all three guest cabins are en suite and a dedicated staircase leads to the owner’s stateroom amidships via a private lobby area. The Y78's flexible deck layout features a walkthrough foredeck with U-shaped seating and sunbathing areas. In addition to panoramic views from the flybridge, the U-shaped seating with dining table, aft sunpad, and wet bar offer further space in which to relax and unwind. There is also plenty of room to fit a crane and store a tender. Her twin MAN V12 1,800hp engines reach a top speed of 34-36 knots.
Heralded as the new look for future Princess motor yachts when she was introduced in 2019, the Y85's sweeping profile houses an interior sanctuary that resets the benchmark for modern living. Designed by the Italian studio Pininfarina, the most stylistic feature of this boat is the immense hardtop seemingly supported by twin cantilevers on each side. The single-level main deck area provides an expansive and luxurious living space, and the home-size galley — with a deck door for easy provisioning — can be closed off from the salon by a sliding partition. Below deck, up to eight guests are accommodated across four beautifully appointed cabins. The opulent full-beam master suite features a vanity/desk to port with room to spare for a separate dressing area with two large wardrobes. The VIP cabin forward also has a walk-in wardrobe, rare on a yacht this size. Both amidships guest cabins have en suite heads. On the main deck level, the cockpit is fully shaded and has a C-shaped sofa and raised dining table for entertaining close to the salon. Thanks to the separate steering position and doors to the side decks, the crew can move discreetly about the yacht. Twin 1,900hp MAN V12 engines reach a top speed of 28–30 knots.
For a builder known for conservative styling that doesn’t age, the flowing lines of the tri-deck X95 represent a bold step forward into the Princess future. Styled by Pininfarina, the X95’s design brilliance can be seen in the full-height wraparound windows, astonishing salon — largest in its class — and supersized flybridge with walkaround bow seating (or optional hot tub), and midway skylounge. Both the flybridge and main deck cover almost the entire length of the yacht. Princess offers several layout choices on the main deck whose forward section can be configured as an open-plan galley and dining area or as a private salon and cinema. Below decks, the standard layout includes a full-beam master amidships, a VIP stateroom with a walk-in wardroom forward, and two en suite guest staterooms in between. There are crew cabins in the stern and the option of a beach club set inside the transom looking out over the aft platform. Headroom throughout the yacht is never less than 6ft 8in. With a fuel capacity of 3,400 gallons, the X95 has a range of 2,000 nautical miles at a 10-knot cruising speed and a top speed of 22–24 knots.
The Princess X95 will be available for private showings by appointment only at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Please contact HMY to schedule an appointment for the X95 at the show.
