Sydney Boat Show Heralds Arrival Of Next Generation Princess Yachts


The Sydney International Boat Show will host a landmark event for admirers of the Princess Yachts range of luxury boats with the Australian launch of the new V-Class flagship, the Princess V85-S.

Arriving along with a flotilla of her sister ships, including the V45, the V52, the V62 and the 78 Motor Yacht, it will be the first time that any of these magnificent boats have graced Sydney Harbour. Sydney International Boat Show represents the opportunity for Princess Yachts to show the Sydney boating public the momentous change in the brands evolution.

The Princess V85-S sets new standards in performance with increased range, reduced weight and superior technology. It is driven by a choice of powerful twin engines, coupled to a pair of five bladed propellers which can generate a top speed well over 30 knots.

The Princess V85-S has a power assisted hydraulic steering system with 300kgf bow thrusters, to make mooring a breeze.

The spacious air-conditioned saloon deck, with timber floor and carpet inlay, spans the full 20ft 7in beam. It boasts two comfy sofas, LCD television, surround sound system, cocktail bar and extendable dining table seating eight in comfort.

The owners stateroom takes advantage of the entire width of the vessel, with a large comfortable double bed situated amidships for stability. Awash with natural light from four vertical port-lights on either side, it is luxuriously appointed with LCD TV, DVD, surround sound system, air conditioning, en-suite with separate shower and even a built in safe.

The forward stateroom also has a large double bed, entertainment centre and en-suite, as well as a hatch to the foredeck. The port and starboard guest cabins have two single beds with en-suites.

The lower helm features twin leather adjustable seats, full instrumentation and an electrically operated sunroof. The self draining aft cockpit features a discreet side door to the two self contained crew cabins and the soundproofed engine room.

Joining the V85-S will be the equally impressive Princess 78 Motor Yacht.

An elegant, contemporary profile and characteristic deep-V hull combine in the new 78 Motor Yacht with the highest standards of construction, integrated design solutions and class-leading dynamic ability. Sleek lines and a highly resolved underwater section ensure she embodies the very latest in Princess design and technology, delivering thoroughbred performance and an assured, stable ride for effortlessly fast and efficient cruising.

This, the most impressive range of Princess Yachts ever to be displayed in Sydney, will be available for inspection alongside the Princess Yachts hospitality vessel “The Pontoon”, exclusively available to Princess owners and invited guests. Alan Paterson and the team from Princess Yachts Australia will be providing a relaxed and inviting environment to view this stunning range of the world’s finest boats, while guests can enjoy freshly brewed barista coffee, light refreshments and fine food prepared by the on-site bespoke chef.
