New Model: Princess 72 Motor Yacht

The Princess 72 Motor Yacht was launched at the start of the year London Boat show and continues the expansion of this line which was started in 2007 with the introduction of the 95 flagship. She is also at 22 metres the smallest of the Motor Yacht line, which is reinventing Princess larger sized series. Replacing the 67 and 21M, the 72 Motor Yacht features a four double guest cabin interior, with three heads. An owners full beam stateroom with beauty desk, sofa, walk in wardrobe, and private shower head is located to midship. To foreship is the VIP suite, two double cabins sit in the middle of the lower deck, and a single head complete the guest accommodation area. A double crew cabin with shower head is located aft. The modern single level saloon with a C-shaped sofa, L-shaped dinette, and an open style galley makes part of the interior living main deck. Outside areas continue the latest must have features as the fore deck settee, and an up and down bathing platform which adds space for another toy besides the one sitting on the flybridge. The flybridge is spacious although having been personally on the 67 the plans alone do show it smaller to the older model. The 72 Motor Yacht continues Princess evolution into vacuum infusion environmental friendly and lighter build method. Considering that a 2012 date can enforce this building method in all developed countries i.e. Europe and the States it is better to get going now. Princess is so far the only British builder building complete resin infused models with the 78 and 72 series constructed in this method. Power is from a no choice of twin MTU 1500hp which give a top speed of 34 knots to the 45 tons 72 Motor Yacht.
