Project: Princess 64

Princess present the project of the 64, set to be unveiled in September at the Southampton show and replacing the 62 model. This new project seems based on the 62, with the addition of the hydraulic bathing platform, changes to the flybridge and main deck saloon layout, a larger port hole in the fore VIP cabin, and a more sporty aft looking radar arch. Thankfully Princess kept the good four cabins layout, which gave this model a good sales push considering that very few nineteen, twenty metre motor yachts offer this. This was surely a deal breaker for the 62. Performance estimates have not been announced although I do imagine the standard twin Volvo 900hp to be good for a 31 knots top speed, similar to what the 62 does with twin Cats 865hp. www.princessyachts.com
