Highly anticipated Princess V57 and V39 to debut at 2012 London Boat Show

Princess Yachs is set for another landmark London Boat Show in January. The Plymouth boat builder that epitomises the best of British manufacture, will launch both the smallest vessel it has produced for over a decade and the largest the luxury brand has ever built.

The highly anticipated Princess V39 receives her world premier and marks a stunning return to the sub-40 foot sector for the brand. Princess Yachs will also have the largest boat on display inside London’s Excel once
again as the 32M takes pride of place in the boardwalk to provide the centre piece for the whole nautical show.

The new Princess V39 luxury boat provides a very welcome proposition for those who prefer smaller craft yet still demand the very best in style, performance and quality, says the official statement. A unique hull design and powerful Volvo D6-330 engines ensure she is both exhilarating and economical with quick transition to plane and highly efficient cruising speeds.

The large saloon and well equipped galley combine for a highly sociable entertaining space and both cabins are generously proportioned and contemporarily styled. The new Princess V39 has also been designed to be as practical as she is elegant with an expansive teak-laid cockpit complete with large wetbar and generous seating and a transom platform large enough to accommodate a tender.

Also making her international debut at the London show is the Princess V57, another superb addition to the ever popular Princess V Class range.

A large main deck saloon with large opening sunroof and triple sliding doors connects to the aft cockpit to provide an ‘open boating’ experience. Yet, with doors and roof closed, also offers the perfect haven to escape from the heat of the day without sacrificing the marine views.

A submersible bathing platform and large garage for a tender or jet-ski make enjoying watersports from Princess V57 a real pleasure and the large sun bed and generous seating in the cockpit make this the perfect place to relax or soak up the sun.

Down below, the intelligent use of space makes Princess V57 feel like a much larger craft. The three light-filled cabins all have spacious en-suite bathrooms. The owner’s stateroom is positioned aft where it enjoys the full beam, while the forward double cabin can be fitted with optional scissor berths for greater flexibility.

Spring 2012 will see the most significant product launch for the Company to date as the first Princess tri-deck yacht, the 40M, is revealed.
