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 new, sleeker exterior style that blends with her
sporting profile.
Special weight reducing techniques are employed in
her state-of-the-art construction to ensure maximum
performance and efficiency is gained from the very latest
engine technology (1800-2600mhp per engine), whilst
retaining all the advantages of shaft driven propellers. One
of the key options available is the new top of the range
2,600hp MTU 16V powerful yet compact high-speed
diesel engine, enabling the V85-S to achieve top speeds of
up to 40 knots.
The V85-S features a new upper sundeck, which is
fitted with a luxurious sunbathing and relaxation area as
standard. This is a relaxed space for daytime entertaining
as an alternative to the cockpit and foredeck seating areas.
Alternatively, the area can be specified with a flybridge
upper helm station option, with two seats.
Throughout the interior Princess has ensured exceptional
levels of style and comfort. In the magnificent main deck,
the side windows have been completely restyled and
enlarged to admit more light to the area. Its open plan
layout gives a massive entertaining space. Clever touches,
such as a new drop-leaf dining table set well forward, have
created additional space into which Princess has styled an
enlarged, lower, deeper and altogether more inviting sofa,
and a stylish leather-trimmed bar.
In keeping with one of the most luxurious sports yachts
on the market, the spacious accommodation below deck -
two large staterooms and two twin guest cabins each with
ensuite facilities – are specified with the highest quality
materials. In the suites, the leathers, fabrics and fittings
have been sourced from the best stocks available, and are
offered in a wide choice of colours. The bathrooms feature
granite floors as standard, bespoke ceramic basins, and
shower compartments finished in the finest mosaic tiles.
The impressive specification of the Princess V85-S
includes a spacious double garage for a 4m RIB and jet ski;
and a hydraulic raise/lower bathing platform. Additional
facilities feature a separate crew area with two crew cabins.
