As Thailand's largest boating and lifestyle show, PIMEX is the longest-running show of its kind in Southeast Asia, attracting over 5,000 visitors each year from more than 30 countries.
Princess Yachts will return to PIMEX with six yachts, including the special edition Princess 82 Motor Yacht. The 25.5-metre hull features broad windows the length of the main deck saloon, a spacious formal dining area forward and a full-beam master cabin with a large ensuite with walk-in wardrobe as well as three guest ensuite cabins.
The hand-made panels in the cockpit and hardtop, containing hundreds of individual optical fibers matching the pattern of actual star constellations, make the 82 a special edition motor yacht. Each optical fiber represents a star and each light is set to the appropriate brightness. Concealed lighting is installed under the master cabin bunk and underneath the exterior seating on the flybridge. The concealed lighting can be switched separately and controlled with remote control. The remote control enables the colour to be changed which has an impressive effect on the flybridge, especially during the evening.
The Princess line-up will also include the 42-foot luxury flybridge motor yacht Princess 42, as well as the popular flybridge Princess 60. Also being displayed is the 72 Motor Yacht featuring expansive windows down each side of the saloon and a galley that can be separated from the saloon by an aft sliding glass screen. The 78 Motor Yacht will be included, engineered using infusion technology to reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency. She delivers an outstanding performance and is one of the most dynamically capable craft of her class.
Last of the line-up is the new S Class Princess S72, winner of the 2015 Motor Boat Award in the over 55ft category. The S Class design features include dark wraparound glass and angled hull windows offering uninterrupted views. While inside, exclusive materials and bespoke contemporary furniture raises Princess Yachts to a new level of luxury and modernity.
