Motorboat & Yachting: The S-class range is expanding, with the Princess S65 due to be unveiled in the autumn, the Plymouth yard has announced.
Princess Yachts has announced a new S-class model that will be launched in the autumn, known as the Princess S65. The new arrival follows on from the launch of the S72, which was billed as a sportsbridge – as it combines the best bits of both a flybridge and sportscruiser.
The layout on the Princess S65 will include an aft galley across from the main dining area, which is connected to the cockpit by an electrically-opening aft window.
Below decks, Princess will fit four cabins and three heads compartments as standard, with a rear crew cabin offered as an optional extra. Other key features include a transom garage that can swallow up a tender measuring up to 3.3m (10’10”).
Engine options haven’t been disclosed yet, but the Princess S65 has been designed to hit a top speed of 38 knots, with a fast cruising speed of 30 knots.
It is not yet clear which autumn boat show Princess will choose for the unveiling of the S65, but all the key details will be revealed on MBY.com as soon as we get them.
British Motor Yacht Show to have at least 15 new boats on display from Sunseeker, Princess and Fairline
More information has been released about the inaugural British Motor Yacht Show, which will run from 17-19 May at Swanwick Marina on the River Hamble.
This is the first time the dealers behind the UK’s biggest yards have come together like this to jointly host an event proudly displaying the cream of British boatbuilding.
The show’s organisers, Princess Motor Yacht Sales, Fairline Southampton and Sunseeker Southampton, are expecting up to 1,000 visitors over the weekend, but with free entry that figure could end up being far higher.
There will also be displays from “handpicked” industry leaders such as MTU, Caterpillar, Volvo Penta and Garmin.
Trevor Betts, general manager at Fairline Southampton, said: “It makes perfect sense for Britain’s premier motor yacht distributors to form an alliance to promote British expertise.
“In the general context, we are stronger if we work together. Symbolically, this show is hugely significant.”
It’s not known at present precisely which boats will be on display but check the show’s website (to go live in April) for more information as it arises.
