PRINCESS YACHTS will stage the joint world premiere of the Princess 62 at the Cannes Yachting Festival (September 12-17) and the Southampton Boat Show (September 15-24), before holding her Asia Pacific debut at Phuket Boat Lagoon marina in Thailand in November.

Relaxation areas onboard the 66-footer include a large dining area, a sunpad aft and a circular forward seating area that can be converted into an additional sunpad. She also boasts a walkthrough foredeck entertaining space and a hydraulic bathing platform.

Her large saloon features an aft galley that opens to the cockpit. The helm position is located starboard with additional forward-facing guest seating opposite. Below deck are three en-suite cabins with the option of a further twin cabin aft. The yacht can reach a top speed of 32.5 knots with twin Caterpillar 12.9 1,000 engines.

Andrew Lawrence, Head of Design at Princess, said: “The new Princess 62 delivers a fresh look and feel whilst maintaining all of the traditional qualities of craftsmanship and refinement which are synonymous with Princess and the Princess Design Studio.” The Princess 55 will be making its world premiere at Southampton before making its official Asia premiere at the eighth Singapore Yacht Show next April.

The 55-footer has a top speed of 33 knots, while its fly bridge includes a U-shaped aft seating area with a folding teak dining table, a wet bar with optional electric barbecue and twin helm seats accompanied by L-shaped seating that converts to a sunpad.

The main deck features a dining area in the cockpit and an aft galley that allows for alfresco dining. The saloon houses a U-shaped sofa and hand-made coffee table that converts into an optional dining table, with sofa opposite and a 49-inch screen that rises from the sideboard.

Accommodation consists of an en-suite master state room, a forward double guest cabin and a starboard twin cabin with the option of a double bed conversion. There is also an optional single crew cabin aft with en-suite and storage.
