Princess Announces World Premiere for 2014 PSP Southampton Boat Show

Impressive 15 boat line-up to include new Princess 68

Princess Yachts International is on track to deliver an exciting world debut for the 2014 PSP Southampton Boat Show with its new, feature-packed Princess 68 to be unveiled at the event.

A majestic cruiser offering an incredible mix of space, accommodation and performance, the new 68 comes loaded with unique owner-focused features, including a private stairway for the stateroom, the ability to seat four or five people around the helm, a galley aft layout that delivers two full dining areas and a wonderfully social foredeck.

The most technologically advanced flybridge yacht yet from Princess, the Princess 68's composite construction is comparable to that used in Formula 1 and delivers one of the highest levels of internal volume ever created by Princess for a given length. This four-cabin, 34 knot yacht also includes a vast deck saloon and a flybridge that will be the envy of many a 75ft vessel.

The Princess 68 will be on the marina, at Berth M517, and promises to be one of the most spectacular launches of the year.

New Princess 60

Along with the Princess 68, on the marina the new Princess 60 will be making her International debut. The superstructure of the Princess 60 includes an incredibly deep window line offering stunning panoramic views from the saloon. 

Two flybridge layout options are available; the standard layout features a huge aft seating area and a convertible seating-to-sunpad area forward. The second flybridge layout is designed to complement the optional hardtop, an increasingly popular feature, with a large seating area forward under the hardtop's electric opening roof and an independent sunpad aft. 

Beautiful joinery and exquisite details combine with the latest finishes and materials from the Princess Design Studio to create the ultimate three-cabin Flybridge yacht. 

15 boats on display

Princess will also be exhibiting a near full range of models. From the Flybridge range, the Princess 43, 52, 56, Princess 72 Motor Yacht, 82 Motor Yacht, 88 Motor Yacht and 98 Motor Yacht will also be on show. 

From the V Class range of Sport Yachts the multiple award-winning V39 will be shown in a new sunpad layout for the first time, along with the V48, V52, V57 and V62-S. 

Away from the marina, the Princess stand (E055) will be showcasing the new S72, the first time this powerful Sportbridge yacht will have been seen at the show and forms part of a double European debut with another S72 being shown at the Cannes Boat Show. 

The S72 delivers a new level of style and on-water attitude from Princess with her performance honed lines hiding a fabulous upper deck, the perfect place to drive this incredible craft at speeds of up to 38 knots. The lower helm offers a more refined place to pilot the boat, but a large carbon fibre sunroof still delivers plenty of on-water atmosphere. Add in three cabins, including a full beam stateroom, finished in an exclusive range of materials from the Princess Design Studio and the S72 is quite simply the most exciting motorboat design on the water today. 

The Princess stand includes an owner's lounge and a balcony overlooking what is one of the most spectacular on-water events in the world. We hope to see you there.
