The Princess 55 will have its global debut at the Southampton Boat Show before making its official Asia Pacific premiere at the Singapore Yacht Show 2018.
Vrit Yongsakul, Group Managing Director of Boat Lagoon Yachting which is the exclusive dealer of Princess Yachts Southeast Asia, said: “We are very pleased to be able to offer these two extraordinary luxury yachts in the Southeast Asia region. These models further expand our portfolio of offerings as one of the region’s foremost yacht distributors and ensure our clients can select the perfect yacht to match their lifestyle.”
The all-new 62 features deck saloon windows and the clean lines of the canopy. She is fitted with twin Caterpillar 12.9 1000 engines and is expected to reach speeds up to 32.5 knots.
The Princess 62’s flybridge inspires relaxation with a large dining area, a sunpad aft and a circular forward seating area that can be converted into an additional sunpad. She also boasts a walkthrough foredeck entertaining space and a hydraulic bathing platform.
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 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 Princess Design Studio styling. 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.
Andrew Lawrence, Head of Design, said: “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.”
The Princess 62 provides the sociable on-water experience thanks to its circular flybridge seating arrangement and its light-filled voluminous interior.
The sociable flybridge Princess 55 includes a U-shaped aft seating area with folding teak dining table, a wetbar with optional electric barbecue and twin helm seats accompanied by Lshaped companion seating that converts to a sunpad.
The main deck features a spacious dining area in the cockpit and an aft galley, which lends itself to dining al-fresco. The saloon houses a U-shaped sofa and a hand-made coffee table that converts into an optional dining table, with sofa opposite or catch a movie on the 49in screen that raises up from the sideboard.

Twin helm seats have been reimagined with fore and aft adjustment for helmsman. Open space to relax can be found forward with the seating area and the sunpad.
The collection of contemporary sofas, furniture and floating side board is highlighted with subtle accent lighting and finishes in soft suede, tinted mirror, hand stitched detailing and Japanese wallpapers.
Below, expansive hull windows create a sense of constant forward motion while flooding the interior with light. Lower accommodation consists of a master stateroom with dressing table, breakfast area and en-suite bathroom, a forward double guest cabin and a starboard twin cabin with the option of a double bed conversion. There is also an optional single aft cabin with en-suite and storage, aimed to be for crew.
She can reach a top speed of 33 knots.
