The latest Princess M Class 'Solaris' to be displayed at Monaco Yacht Show

40M with Mark Berryman interior will showcase the ability of the Princess semi-custom shipyard

Princess Yachts International is pleased to confirm that its latest M Class, M/Y Solaris, will be displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show.

Recently delivered to her owner, Solaris enjoys a unique six-cabin interior, the result of a collaborative project between the Princess Design Studio and Mark Berryman Design. Her interior features two master staterooms and a full gymnasium, all finished in a unique, hand-picked oak timber.

The upper deck of Solaris has been transformed into a dedicated owner's deck with a stateroom, seating area, separate office and en suite, all surrounded by large sections of glass for the most commanding and breathtaking views across the water. Through the stateroom's stainless steel doors, a private deck is located aft with an intimate dining area and expansive seating. From here stairs lead to the main deck below or up to the sun deck.

The second master stateroom lies across the full beam of the main deck, in its conventional forward position, and enjoys a seating area, separate office and en suite. As with all M Class yachts, tall sections of glass run along each side for the most incredible views and natural light.

The lower deck accommodates four further en suite cabins, two double cabins aft and two twin cabins with sliding berths, as well as a fully Technogym-equipped gymnasium lying forward. This includes a running machine, Kinesis workout station and a separate en suite.

The main deck of Solaris features an impressive entrance lobby with feature bulkhead and ornate console that create privacy for guests within. The saloon seating area is designed to easily accommodate up to 12 guests with a separate dining area located forward featuring a solid Macassar ebony table and finished in materials chosen from the expansive Princess Design Studio styling portfolio. Sliding doors to port and starboard lead out to deck-side balconies connecting this magnificent entertaining space with the anchorage.

The whole yacht is easily served by the full galley and crew quarters that lie forward, including their own dedicated staircase offering discreet movement around Solaris and minimal disturbance to her guests.

The aft main deck has been designed with a large removable awning, offering complete shade to the seating area below. Twin access from the aft deck leads to the beach club which can be a place to idle away the hours or indulge in something more adventurous. With its full height interior and fold down beach door this area offers a uniquely private waterside location to relax, however its accompanying 6.25m tender and two jet skis, together with a full dive room, mean that there is never a dull moment aboard Solaris.

If guests feel the need to escape to a more secluded spot, the sun deck, with its wetbar, twin grill barbecue, spa bath and lounging areas is the perfect retreat. Or perhaps head to the foredeck, a wonderfully private area when in port.

Wherever you sail, Solaris, the latest M Class from Princess will deliver in style. Her state-of-the-art composite hull construction is both strong and lightweight, delivering superb efficiency and speed. The advanced semi-displacement hull design offers excellent stability at lower displacement speeds but fitted with twin MTU V12 2,938hp engines she can deliver speeds up to 20 knots, effortlessly carrying you to your chosen destination. 

Solaris will be available for viewing by appointment only, to arrange a viewing please contact your local distributor.

The Monaco Yacht Show runs from the 24th to 27th of September. Princess are located at stand number QE6 and Solaris will lie at berth number E15.
