Princess Y Class Motor Yachts deliver an unmatched combination of luxury, interior ambience and space and Princess Yachts now reveals a new landmark Motor Yacht, the all-new Y85. The Y85 joins the award winning Y75 as well as the hugely successful Y88 in the Y Class range, delivering quality performance, technology and quality time at sea. Hand-built in Plymouth, England, the Y85 offers a unique experience, created for the owner who wants to travel in style and luxury.

The Princess Design Studio and Olesinski worked closely with Pininfarina to combine a unique sculptural elegance and simplicity of form that gives the Y85 breathtaking new looks while remaining unmistakably Princess. The Y85 design team focused as much on interior layout and use as on exterior elegance and detail. The flybridge unashamedly focuses on al-fresco living and relaxing. A large dining area sits opposite a fully-equipped wet bar, barbecue and fridge, further complemented by a large aft sunpad and forward-facing seating either side of the helm position where guests can take shade underneath the dynamic architectural form of the optional louvred hardtop.

Princess Yachts’ V Class range is focused on a modern, exciting and comfortable life at sea. Athletic, dynamic and luxurious, the V78 fits perfectly into owners’ lifestyles – be that cruising from port to port, enjoying water sports, or entertaining friends and family. Proudly positioned as the new flagship in the iconic Princess V Class range, the V78 delivers on a clear brief for the modern sports yacht owner’s demands – elegance of form, quality of materials, perfect practicality and inspiring dynamics – and will appeal to V Class loyalists looking for a step-up in size and performance as well as new clients searching for athleticism and elegance.

The brand-new Princess F45 flybridge delivers unparalleled space, design quality and flexibility in a compact flybridge yacht that features a full-beam owner’s cabin, extended flybridge and a unique electronically-controlled sliding transom, which increases the size of the cockpit area at the touch of a button by 60 cm.

Like its stablemates, the F45 is packed with technical innovations that ensure this compact yacht feels as spacious above deck as it does below. Together with its elegant full-length hull windows, beautifully resolved surfacing, and unique design details, the F45 will establish itself as the benchmark small flybridge yacht.

Luxury yachts were not the only forms of transport on display on the Princess stand. The world’s lightest folding bicycle from Hummingbird takes to the stand in a new partnership with the British luxury yacht manufacturer. Beautifully designed from the outset, the high-performance lightweight carbon fibre frame sports a unique Princess livery and is perfect for stowing aboard and using for adventures inland.
