Princess 75 spotted ahead of rumoured London launch

Motorboat & Yachting: A leaked image appears to show the new Princess 75, which could be getting a public launch at the London Boat Show.

 

Back in September, when Princess Yachts revealed the renderings of its next two models – the Princess 75 and the Princess 49 – the smart money seemed to be on the smaller of the two models getting launched first.

However, it now seems that it is the Princess 75 that will be ready in time for the London Boat Show, after this behind-the-scenes picture was leaked.

A source close to Princess told MBY: “They’re planning to do a surprise launch at the Excel Centre, with the Princess 75 taking the place of the 88 MY.”

The news comes less than a week after Princess Motor Yacht Sales released a full-line-up of 11 boats due to make the journey up from Plymouth to London, with the Princess 88 as the star attraction.

There was no mention of either the Princess 49 or the Princess 75, much to the consternation of Princess Yachts fans hoping for a brand new model to view.

But if this leaked picture is to be believed, then it seems like the Princess team had a rather large trick up their sleeve all along.

Early details indicate that the Princess 75 will be fitted with a choice of three engines, the most powerful of which being a twin MAN V12 1800 set-up, capable of a top speed of 36 knots.
