The Princess 68 has a spacious flybridge with large sunpad, twin helm and a wet bar for on hand refreshment. On deck, she provides ample entertaining space with both cockpit and foredeck seating and an inviting sunbathing area.
Inside, an aft-galley layout is 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, whilst guests enjoy a separate stairwell and three cabins.
Out at sea, she can reach a maximum speed of 36 knots with twin 1,400mhp MAN V12 engines.
The British yacht builder has launched five products last year and another six for this year with production planned to exceed 290 yachts. It will launch the all-new R Class later this year, which is believed to revolutionise its yacht design approach.
'We have been working with BAR Technologies for two years (part of the British team in the America's Cup) to build the fastest fully carbon-fibre Princess yacht to date and it will be the fastest and sexiest yacht we have produced', says Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman, Princess Yachts.
