The launch event gathered over 150 guests and more than 60 of them attended the sea trial.
Princess V40 is an update on the V39. Using the same hull, stern drive setup and engines, the interior and exterior have been updated in-line with other recent additions to the Princess range.
V40 comes with port light window glazing that floods the saloon and cabins. The interior highlights the Princess V Class colour palette, which accentuates the restyled helm console, spacious saloon and accommodation areas.
Draped contrast styling is utilised on upholstery throughout. Panels and headboard in the Owner's cabin were crafted from Ralph Lauren Nantucket Raffia Tortoise fabric. The main saloon also features Ralph Lauren fabric panelling. The helm seat was also restyled.
The forward cabin has an en-suite bathroom with secondary access to the saloon whilst the aft cabin can be fitted with optional sliding berths to provide conversion to a double when required.
The spacious cockpit is equipped with a teak table and wetbar with oyster grey leading down to a squared off sunbed aft with easy access to the transom lockers.
The sculpted form of the deep-V hulls is shaped from a lightweight, resin-infused hull composite, which can create greater internal volume compared to standard hull production methods. The yacht can reach a top speed of 38 knots.
