The Princess 35M is the third yacht in Princess’ M range, slotting in between the 30M and flagship 40M. Though, at 115ft 4in (35.15m) long and 125 tonnes it’s not that easy to just “slot” it in anywhere.

Despite this heft, Princess claims that a top speed of 25.5 knots with the largest 2,637hp MTU engines and a cruising sweet spot at 17.5 knots where she will burn 440 litres per hour, delivering a range of 550 nautical miles. At 10 knots that range rockets to 1,750 nautical miles.

First look: Princess 35M

Performance is one thing but yachts of this size really shine when you can drop the hook and enjoy your own private four-story island. Between the raised foredeck seating/lounging area, immense sundeck and spacious cockpit your guests are never going to feel on top of each other.

The master cabin is on the main deck on the 35M meaning you get near floor-to-ceiling windows and a stunning ensuite with a bath next to the window.

This first boat is fitted with a sliding partition between the two main guest suites, which allows them to be set up either as a single vast VIP suite with its own private lounge and twin bathrooms or as two separate doubles.
