Coundown to Southampton: Princess

Princess will reveal its new 68 and the S72 and V39 Sunpad make their show debuts, too

The 68 comes into the Princess range between the 64 and 72 with some interesting things going on within the interior.

The most interesting of which is a full-beam master cabin amidships with its own stair access directly from the saloon. This gives the owner even more privacy and a clear separation from guests in their three cabins located at the forward end.

In the saloon, Princess has opted for a galley-aft layout but the free space at the front of the saloon means it can include four forward-facing seats around the helm, which is something of a rarity on boats like this.

The main dining space is located opposite the galley, so the cook doesn’t have far to go with food and an electric window aft turns the kitchen space into an alfresco bar at the touch of a button.

There is walk-through seating at the bow and an optional hardtop for the flybridge such is the pressure of customer demand for this slice of big boat luxury.

Twin diesel engine options from CAT and MAN up to 1,400hp mean the 68 will be good for a claimed 34 knots.

Elsewhere on the stand, the S72 will be making its show debut having had a mini launch at the British Motor Yacht Show and the V39 Sunpad, which does what it says on the tin, will make its first appearance.

See them on stand E055.
