New Exterior Images of Princess Yachts' V55
Published: Wednesday, 15 July 2020
Princess Yachts has released new images of the exterior of its V55 yacht, taken off the coast of Plymouth in England, where the brand is based.
The 17.8-metre V55 was announced in January 2019, joining the brand’s V Class range of sporty, luxurious motor yachts.
The new Princess V55 has been designed from the all-new deep-V hull upwards to offer all-round ability on the water.
A lightweight, resin-infused structure combined with a pair of Volvo D13 engines offers a total of 2,000 mhp and impressive agility at speeds of up to 37 knots.
The layout of the yacht, its interior design and architecture reduce the centre of gravity, to make the yacht one of the most user-friendly in its class. Coupe-like styling and a generous sunroof encourage alfresco living.
The V55 hull’s structural form delivers technical sea-keeping advantages by optimising lift and drag at speed and providing the framework for a smart use of space.
The exterior of the latest V Class is characterised by long sweeping lines and simple, sculptural forms. The dynamic profile conceals a spacious interior that’s perfect for just relaxing or making longer journeys in comfort. Access to the V55 is from the hydraulic bathing platform, leading to the teak deck that runs throughout the living area.
The cockpit connects to the main saloon via a drop-down sliding patio door, seamlessly integrating the two living areas.
Below, up to six guests can enjoy three spacious cabins that are filled with natural light from the hull glazing. The full-beam master stateroom has a large double bed, en suite, 40-inch UHD LED TV and Naim Audio system, plus plenty of storage for extended stays at sea.
Further guests can be accommodated in the forward cabin or third bunk cabin. The lobby features a washer-dryer and laundry facilities, whilst an optional single aft cabin for crew or occasional guest can also be specified.
