Princess V48

Made her Southampton debut, the Princess V48 Open is primarily interested in Mediterranean clients. But our latitudes are miles away, it's a closed version, and that's where we'll stop.


Princess V48 - is a type of sports yacht where the emphasis is not only on speed but also on comfort. The lightweight hull, typical of Princess, is responsible for her dynamic performance. However, there have been some strategic changes in the «stuffing» for the yard.


For the first time, the English manufacturer equipped the V-series with Volvo engines with IPS propulsion system, which improved handling and manoeuvrability.


The Princess V48 will delight the captain with its driving performance and obedience, not only at low speed, but also when going out for hydroplaning.

In terms of accommodation, the Princess V48 is designed for long stays of guests on board. It is a very spacious boat with two cabins, each of which has its own bathroom. A second salon is located on the lower deck. There is also a well-equipped galley, which once again highlights the comfort of the Princess V48.

Princess 43

For over 10 years, the Princess 42 has been the benchmark for flybridge cruisers up to 15 meters and one of the most famous yachts produced at the Plymouth shipyard. As a matter of fact, if you know her, you have an idea of the heir to her tradition, the Princess 43.


This flybridge motorboat has adopted the best features of the previous model, such as handling, practicality and ease of use, adding to the formula of success the latest technology, advanced materials and modern style in design.


The lightweight hull, designed by Bernard Olesinski, is made using vacuum forming technology, which improved the dynamic performance of the boat. Compared to her predecessor, the yacht is smoother in acceleration and has a wider speed range in planing mode.


The potential of both external and internal spaces has been maximized. There are sunbathing areas on the cockpit, where the seats can be easily transformed into sunbeds, and on the flybridge, where, among other things, there is a spacious dining area.

Princess 88 MY

And the last «king's blood» debutant is Princess 88. Powerful, yet elegant and manoeuvrable, this motor yacht has a composite hull designed for both speedy walks and long distance travel in economical displacement mode. The hull technology was previously rolled out on the mega yacht Princess 40M.


Inside the Princess 88 does not look like its 27 ... With all sorts of tricks, the designers have visually extended the space of meters to 30.


As always, the shipyard takes the customer's wishes into account as much as possible in the layout of the living spaces. Depending on the customer's needs, the Princess 88 can accommodate four or five guest cabins with their own sanitary facilities.

Of the interesting options offered by the shipyard, we note the folding balcony to starboard.
