Countdown to Düsseldorf: Princess

Princess will launch the S78, V65 and V50 at Düsseldorf next month

Stand 6/B21

Princess’s strikingly handsome S Class flagship will make its global debut at Düsseldorf.

Despite being the largest S model to date at 80ft 11in (24.7m), the S78 is by no means lacking in performance and is capable, according to Princess, of 39 knots with the largest pair of 1,900hp MAN V12s. There are two smaller engine options if top-end performance isn’t so important.

A central walkway leads from the transom up to a fabulous cockpit complete with dedicated sunbathing space and two separate external seating areas that merge effortlessly with the glass-packed saloon.

Below, there are eight berths split across four cabins plus a twin crew cabin. All are ensuite. The owner has a full-beam cabin amidships.

The flybridge is naturally more compact than that of a regular 80ft flybridge but it offers a raised driving position and more external lounging space to complement the cockpit and foredeck seating area.

Demonstrating that there’s still life in large sportscruisers yet, Princess will launch the V65 (and the V50) at the German show.

The V65 has a standard four-cabin layout with the double master and VIP ensuites supplemented by two guest cabins, one a twin and one with bunks.

The main deck features a vast saloon, drenched in natural light thanks to the glazing, which leads out to a sociable cockpit complete with
a double sunpad and tender garage.

Twin 1,400hp MAN V12s are good for a quoted top speed of 38 knots.
