New Model: Princess 60

Princess presents the new 60, a model which represents the evolution of the 58 with a lot of changes.  When saying a lot, it means that the 60 offers not only a larger extended bathing platform but has been changed in many areas from the looks outside to the interior and external layout.  The new 60 does only in fact take the hull shape of the previous 58 model.  For me the most important change of the 60 is the galley up which now is more similar to that of the larger Princess's, and leaves the lower deck dedicated for the three double cabins.  Here below is impressive too, with the three cabins all having a private head, with the third head being independent and offering also a day use.  Other notable layout changes are the aft deck now with a two way exit to the bathing platform, a larger flybridge, and bigger windows in all parts main and lower deck which take looks from the latest Princess models. Power is from twin Volvo 800, or optional 900, and Cats 865hp in between.  Top speeds are in the region of 30 up to 35 knots, with the bigger Volvo choice.
