The R35 is the first Princess R Class performance sports yacht. Designed in partnership with Ben Ainslie Racing Technologies (BAR Technologies) and Pininfarina, the R35 combines performance capabilities, design and race-bred technology to deliver experience up to 50 knots, with the new Princess Active Foil System.
The Princess V60, latest addition to the award-winning V Class range, can reach speeds up to 38 knots. Guests can enjoy open boating thanks to the electric sliding sunroof in the open-plan saloon with U-shaped sofa. They can dine al fresco, relax on the sunpad, or enjoy watersports from the bathing platform.
The F70 is a generous 26.6sqm flybridge, featuring a large U-shaped dining area served by a fully equipped wetbar with barbeque, aft sunpad and a forward seating area adjacent to the helm. Sociable al fresco dining is also available, with its aft galley arrangement opening out towards the cockpit. She has a variable deadrise hull form, which provides greater lift and less drag, enabling her to achieve lower planing speeds while still reaching up to 36 knots with her MAN V12 1400mhp engines.
Princess’s line-up at Cannes also includes the show debuts of V50 and S78, as well as showcases of the S60, Princess 55, 62 and 30M.
