Project: Princess 60

Princess present the project for a new 60, which will replace the 58 model. Based on the hull of the model it replaces the 60 will feature a change and improvement in all areas from the internal layout plan offering more spaces, to a redesigned super structure, new deck arrangement, and larger windows in all areas. The most important novelty here is the moving of the galley, now on the main deck from below, and a three head layout instead of two. Finally Princess walked away from the 58 galley situated in the lower deck by the cabins, which is not so good on anything above fifty feet where luxury and comfort becomes of a certain importance. Below the owners suite, and VIP remain to a similar plan although both are larger to what was offered on the 58. Other important novelties are the hydraulic up and down bathing platform, aft deck with two transom doors, and longer extended flybridge. The flybridge is also larger now having a C-shaped settee to starboard, and sun pad to aft. Completing the new design are also latest generation Princess window profile similar to what was introduced with the 62 in 2006. Power choices are three double engines from Volvo and Cat starting from 800 up to 900hp.
