Following the launch of the award winning Imperial Princess in 2012, the flagship Princess 40M from the range of M CLASS superyachts, Princess Yachts International have announced the delivery of the second hull to Russia.
The delivery of hull number two comes amid continuing critical acclaim and international award success for the 40M. As Princess’ largest yacht built to date, and a shining example of how the British yacht manufacturer is firmly establishing itself as world-leading designer and manufacturer of technically-advanced yachts in the 100ft-plus market, she was recognised and celebrated at the World Superyacht Awards earlier this year.
A private commission, the second Princess 40M, has been designed and specified with meticulous detail. Her elegant Mark Berryman interior scheme features an Oriental theme incorporating a refined colour palette and tasteful selection of natural textures including bamboo, natural woods, rattan and golden oak. The spacious yacht interior features six generously-sized cabins; the palatial main deck Master Stateroom was customised to the clients particular request incorporating a large designer bathroom suite.
Designed with comfort and entertaining in mind, this tri-deck yacht comfortably accommodates up to twelve guests in complete privacy, as well as seven crew. Constructed to the highest superyacht standards, the emphasis was on maximizing the expanse of interior and exterior living space, further enhanced by clever interior remodeling to remove non-structural columns within the spacious and open saloon. This created a large area for a grand dining table to comfortably accommodate large numbers of guests.
Notable features of the yacht include a custom sunpad on the aft sundeck, and the elegant Corinthian Blue hull, as selected by the owner. Her technical specification is no less impressive. She is fitted with the first Williams 625 diesel jet tender and an upgraded Crestron audio-visual system. The technically advanced MTU M93L engines provide optimum power and performance for long-distance cruising, and an advanced heating system ensures her suitability within colder climates.
Princess Yachts have recently announced the new Princess 35M which will be joining the M CLASS range in 2014. This expanding range of long-range cruising yachts herald a bold new era for the Plymouth-based company which represents the pinnacle of over 45 years of innovation and engineering excellence.
