British boat builder Princess Yachts U.A.E. is showcasing an exceptional six-yacht lineup at the Dubai International Boat Show (Mar 1-5).
The lineup includes the Middle East debut of the Princess 88 Motor Yacht and the Princess 68. Completing the display is the Princess 56, 52 and 43 Flybridge motor yachts and the V39 V Class sports yacht.
The 88 Motor Yacht features the finest qualities of Princess design and craftsmanship. Her unique deep-V hull design balances fuel efficiency with performance and agility. The vast flybridge and cockpit areas are exceptionally appointed for formal or social occasions. And from the saloon, at the touch of a button, a balcony unfolds over the sea.
Exquisitely handcrafted and furnished to the owner's tastes, her vast interior offers plenty of light from the panoramic windows on the main deck. The expansive saloon and dining area create a sociable space. On the lower deck, owners can choose between a four or five ensuite layout cabins. Generously proportioned crew quarters aft incorporating a captain's cabin, bunk cabin and crew mess complete her impressive layout.
The Princess 68 is a beautiful craft, with a spacious flybridge including a large sunpad, twin helm and a wetbar for on-hand refreshments. On deck she provides ample entertaining space with both cockpit and foredeck seating and an inviting sunbathing area. Out at sea, her exhilarating performance feels light and responsive all the way up to speeds in excess of 30 knots.
Inside, an aft-galley layout is perfectly placed to serve the cockpit, with triple sliding doors and an electrically opening aft window. Expansive areas of glass allow light to pour into the saloon, with the helm enjoying raised L-shaped seating to port for a more social journey. The master stateroom has a private stairwell and lobby, while guests enjoy a separate stairwell and three class-leading cabins.
Princess Yachts is also the first leading luxury yacht manufacturer in the UK to have specifically developed a website that supports Arabic to be set as a primary language.
“It is another way in which we can demonstrate our unique status as a truly global brand. We are seeing an increase in clientele from the Middle East, seeking a Princess ownership experience, and we continue to be respectful of the trans-global nature of a typical Princess customer,” says Princess Yachts Managing Director Kiran Jay Haslam.
