Project: Princess V85-S

British boat builder Princess seems not happy enough to present two new models at the London Show in January 2010, launching there the new 72 Motor Yacht, and V56 and heads a week later to Global sized German Dusseldorf show revealing the new V85-S. The new Princess V85-S takes the Princess V-class sports yacht range to the next level of quality and performance, with its redesigned main deck layout, an enhanced materials specification, and a new more powerful engine option which guarantees a thoroughbred sporting performance. The V85-S is a triumph of modern design, advanced engineering and traditional craftsmanship. Excitement and relaxation are available in equal measure, encapsulated in a sleeker exterior style that blends with her sport profile. Special weight reducing techniques are employed in a state of the art construction method to ensure maximum performance and efficiency gains from the latest engine technology. An all new and distinctive lower profile discreetly incorporates an upper sundeck, which is fitted with a luxurious sunbathing and relaxation area as standard, or an upper helm station as option. Throughout the interior Princess has ensured exceptional levels of style and comfort, such as the completely restyled and enlarged side windows on the magnificent main deck; the open plan layout, giving a massive entertaining space; and the spacious accommodation below deck specified with the highest quality materials. Apart all these improvements the one most important addition remains hidden from view, in the engine room, with the new 2,600hp MTU V16s top of the list. These powerful high speed diesels give a phenomenally impressive power-to-weight ratio and an amazing speed range pushing 40 knots, making the V85-S one of the most powerful in line shaft propelled Super Sport Yacht in this size.
