The all-new 62 encapsulates the Plymouth based shipyard's design and benefits of the latest infusion technology, enabling the inclusion of features normally possible only on much larger craft.  The silhouette of the 62 is unmistakably Princess, from the vast sweeping deck saloon windows to the clean lines of the canopy. New sculpted hull side windows, which are distinctive yet understated, give the exterior a dynamic appearance. Her hull form allows greater efficiency and fitted with twin Caterpillar 1000hp engines the 62 is anticipated to reach speeds up to 34 knots.  The Princess 62's flybridge inspires relaxation with a large dining area, a sun-pad aft and a unique circular forward seating area that can be converted into an additional sun-pad.  Inside the 62 offers a spacious main deck saloon with an astern galley arrangement that opens to the cockpit. The helm position is located to starboard with additional forward facing guest seating opposite. Below deck six guests enjoy three beautifully appointed en suite cabins all bathed in natural light from the elegant hull glazing, with the option of a further twin cabin aft for occasional guests or crew. The 62 features the latest evolution of the signature Princess Design Studio styling. Elegant shaped surfaces and precision layered geometry define the interior to form a truly tranquil environment with meticulous attention to detail. Bespoke furnishings including a handcrafted coffee table in the main deck saloon which beautifully blends the color and textures of timber, glass and leather, combine with soft suede, bronze tint mirrors, hand stitched detailing and Japanese wallpapers to create perfect harmony.

Improve-It = Pershing 74

The Pershing 74 is a recent success and now for 2017 it too has been given a substantial improvement which mostly concerns the interior decor. The new key features are the updated shades and the new Alpi wood and lacquer details, which provide a common thread running through the different rooms, appearing in everything from curtains to mirror frames and bathroom cabinets. The sophisticated finishes and fine details can be seen in the lounge, furnished with a large, L-shaped corner sofa towards the stern, a central table with a smooth leather top and a structural unit with a retractable flat screen TV. Ceilings and bulwarks are covered with Poltrona Frau leather in a light shade especially created to finish these decorative features. The leather on the helm station and seating is also made by Poltrona Frau. It marvelously complements the other finishes and the white oak flooring.  The galley is mid-level between the main deck and below deck. The units are coated with white gloss lacquer and once again there is a contrasting effect thanks to the dark Corian top.  The lower deck magnificently blends natural light with Led lighting, creating appealing effects that really bring out the ivory and dark grey hues of the interiors. In the full beam master suite, the paneling covered with Vescom wallpaper is masterfully broken up by “strips” of Led lighting. Two burnished mirrors make the space feel bigger and there is a king-size bed upholstered with Poltrona Frau leather, as well as two Artemide wall lights. Rounding off the furniture is a chaise lounge with textile upholstery by Zimmer + Rohde.  The style of the master suite is reproduced in both the fore VIP suite and the guest cabin, which comes with two parallel beds and can be fitted with a pull-man bed on request. They are all adorned with the same dark grey lacquer detailing, ceiling coverings, ice-colored bulwarks and Poltrona Frau leather upholstery. There are ivory carpets in all of the cabins. The basins in the bathrooms are made by Brera and the mixer taps by Ritmonio.  The Pershing 74 is equipped with twin MTU 1948hp which give a top speed of 44 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots, while offering maximum comfort with the trim at all times.

Project: Numarine 78 HTS

Numarine, the Turkish Istanbul yacht builder is delighted to unveil a new project the 78 HTS.  This new HTS is an evolution of the 78HT and retains the existing modern and strong signature design, while benefiting from a completely new comfortable sport flybridge with central upper helm station and four beautiful sun-pads with tilt/recline backrests. The new 78 HTS also hides a new “Silent Package” that utilizes a system of lithium-ion batteries along with a smart energy management system and an intelligent multi-stage air conditioning system. In simple terms, this allows to sit at anchor the entire day and run all electrical systems including air conditioning, audio/video, appliances, etc. with the generator running only for a short charge at midday which results in a complete silence while enjoying the sea at anchor. More importantly, after a short charge in the evening before going to bed, the Owner and his guests will be able to sleep in cool cabins without any noise except perhaps that of their peaceful snoring. This technical solution, along with the relentless efforts by Numarine Engineering to reduce all sources of noise, vibration and harshness, has made this 78 HTS a new benchmark for comfort on board, both in navigation, with luxury car noise levels, and when moored or anchored. Probably the quietest series-built yacht in its class today, with 66dB in the lower deck area at cruise speeds.
