Princess Yachts is planning to exhibit seven yachts at Boot Dusseldorf from January 21-29, 2023, as the world’s biggest indoor boat and watersports show returns to the calendar for the first time since January 2020. Princess will exhibit at stand B21 in Hall 6, which is dedicated to large luxury motor yacht builders.


The highlight of the British builder’s display – traditionally one of the largest at the event – will be the world premiere of the S72, the second-biggest model in the S Class behind the popular S78.


Designed by the Princess Design Studio with naval architects Olesinski and Italian design house Pininfarina, the S72 features sleek styling and full-length hull windows. Featuring a resin-infused deep-V hull and fitted with twin 1,650hp or 1,800hp MAN V12 engines, the S72 can reach up to 36 knots.


“After a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Princess are thrilled to once again welcome customers and visitors back to the stand to experience this year’s stunning display, including the launch of the S72,” Princess stated.


Princess Y85


The line-up will also include the European premiere of the Y85 (click for article), the second-biggest model in the Y Class range of large flybridge motor yachts, only behind the recently launched Y95.


The builder’s Boot Dusseldorf debuts include the X80 and the F65, the new F Class flagship that had its world premiere at the Southampton International Boat Show in September. The other yachts on display comprise the V40 cruiser, F45 flybridge yacht and S62 sportbridge yacht.
