The 62 encapsulates the Plymouth-based shipyard's meticulous design ethos and all the benefits of the latest infusion technology, enabling the inclusion of features normally possible only on much larger craft.
The model possesses sweeping deck saloon windows and clean lines of the canopy. New sculpted hull side windows, which are distinctive yet understated, give the exterior a dynamic appearance. Her optimised hull form allows greater efficiency and fitted with twin Caterpillar 12.9 1000 engines, the 62 is anticipated to reach speeds up to 32.5 knots.
The all-new Princess 62's flybridge inspires relaxation with a large dining area, a sunpad aft and a unique circular forward seating area that can be converted into an additional sunpad. Boasting a walkthrough foredeck entertaining space and a hydraulic bathing platform as standard, she is an ingenious and compelling addition to the Flybridge range.
Her cavernous main deck saloon features a sociable aft galley arrangement that opens to the cockpit. The helm position is located to starboard with additional forward facing guest seating opposite. Below deck six guests enjoy three beautifully appointed en suite cabins all bathed in natural light from the elegant hull glazing, with the option of a further twin cabin aft for occasional guests or crew.
The 62 features the latest evolution of the signature Princess Design Studio styling. Elegantly-shaped surfaces and precision layered geometry define the interior to form a tranquil environment with meticulous attention to detail. Bespoke furnishings including a handcrafted coffee table in the main deck saloon, which blends the colour and textures of timber, glass and leather, combine with soft suede, bronze tint mirrors, hand-stitched detailing and Japanese wallpapers to stunning effect and create perfect harmony.
“The new Princess 62 epitomises the beauty and ultimate sophistication we set out to deliver with every new craft. The 62 delivers a fresh look and feel whilst maintaining all of the traditional qualities of craftsmanship and refinement which are synonymous with Princess and the Princess Design Studio,” says Princess Yachts Head of Design Andrew Lawrence.
The Princess 62 provides the sociable on-water experience thanks to its unique circular flybridge seating arrangement and its light-filled voluminous interior.
